Proposed Class Action Settlement Concerning America's Choice II Customers - What!?
I just got this e-mail from Verizon, and I'm wondering if anyone else received it.
It's from AccountNotify@verizonwireless.com, which I'm pretty sure is a legit Verizon e-mail.
By the way, I have no idea what most of this means so, if anyone would like to explain, please do.
If this turns out to be fake, mods, please close.
Here's a screen shot of the e-mail I received:
Perhaps life is just that...a dream and a fear.

Ok here is how it works. Automatically you get 25 minutes good for 1 year they carry over month to month and are probably only pulled from IF you go over your allotment for the month. However if you have unlimited minutes OR if you apply for it you can get a calling card for 40 minutes, they are calling them "units" because sometimes depending on where you call or if you are or a payphone for example it might tick off faster, but most times its probably 40 minutes. Leasts thats how I'm reading and interpreting it.

The attorneys for the plaintiffs and the class have worked on this case for more than 5½ years including appeals to the Supreme Court of Ohio. They will submit a request for attorneys’ fees, expenses, and incentive awards for the Class Representatives in an amount not to exceed $6 million. The Court will determine the amount of any attorneys’ fees and expenses awarded to class counsel, which will be paid by Verizon Wireless and will not affect the benefits to the class under the Settlement.

These "class action" lawsuits are always a waste. The only ones that make money are all the lawyers. The plaintiffs always get pocket change. These suits should be outlawed, they are nothing but a sham.

Well it appears i will get my 25 minutes after all! Of course i never even go even close to going over my 400 minutes because of my friends and family. Perhaps i should apply for the calling card!

Another way to look at this (other than its being a waste of time and money) is that it, like all class actions, enforces the terms of an existing contract. In this one, the court found that Verizon wasn't living up to their obligations for the America's Choice II plan. Now they have to. Without the prospect of legal enforcement, fewer contractual obligations would be observed. From that point of view, it's not really a waste.

Which will also enforce the contract from the carriers point as well. Peeps trying to get out of contract for government fee increases will be disappointed to say the least.Posted using my device of choice. May or may not be a BlackBerry.
