CRT Class Action

Dear DRAM Claimant:

You are receiving this email because you may be eligible to file a claim for the Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) Class Action Settlement.

You could get money from settlements totaling over $576 million.

You may get $25.00 or more for each CRT television or computer monitor you bought between 1995 and 2007.

Claiming is easy, takes less than five minutes, and requires no documentation (although large or unusual claims may require backup). File a claim now at

https://www.CRTclaims.com/fastclaim.

If you have questions or want more information about filing a claim, please contact the Claims Administrator at 1-800-649-0963.

Thank you,
DRAM Claims Administrator
Key eligibility criteria include:
Individuals and businesses qualify for money from this settlement if they purchased a CRT or product containing a CRT, such as a TV or computer monitor, in the following states for their own use and not resale:
•Arizona, California, Florida, Iowa, Kansas, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Mississippi, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, North Dakota, South Dakota, Tennessee, Vermont, West Virginia, Wisconsin or the District of Columbia between March 1, 1995 and November 25, 2007
•Hawaii between June 25, 2002 and November 25, 2007
•Nebraska between July 20, 2002 and November 25, 2007
•Nevada between February 4, 1999 and November 25, 2007
I'm sure many RFDers cross-border shopped for CRT TV's and CRT monitors over that period, and are thus eligible.

Wrong forum maybe?

I think this one is similar like the DRAM claim case months ago. No prove required if you choose the fixed amount ($25). But the cheque will mailed to your US address only.

Sorta related, but whatever happened to the LCD lawsuit?
When given enough time, all threads on RFD can and will go off on a tangent.

From the previous post:

There is no reason why a Canadian can't claim, other than, they must have purchased the CRTs in question in the United States (most of the cross-border shopping states that Canadians use are eligible, NY, MI, ND, MN, etc!). The claim form lists 100 countries or so that can be selected.

Keep in mind that claiming under the US settlement may diminish your rights under a future/potential Canadian settlement for the same cause of action relating to the same CRT purchases. http://www.cfmlawyers.ca/active-litigat ... -ray-tube/ .

I see no reason why it wouldn't work for a foreign resident claimant who purchased the CRTs in the United States and is willing to make an affirmation to that effect. I personally bought a couple CRTs through eBay in that time period and had them shipped cross-border.

I think these class-action settlement deals are mostly for the benefit of the lawyers - they get a bigger fee if they can sign up more people. I don't know anyone who's actually received money from one of these settlements yet.

You're openly admitting you don't qualify for this then - the second question of the application is:

"Did you purchase a CRT Product from a retail store or someone other than a Defendant or an alleged co-conspirator? For example, if you purchased a CRT television or computer monitor from a retailer like Best Buy or a computer manufacturer like Dell, then your answer should be "Yes." If you made no purchases from a retailer or other supplier and you only purchased a CRT television or computer monitor directly from a Defendant or an alleged co-conspirator, then your answer should be "No."

When you answer "No" (lets say you ordered from eBay), you are not eligible.

I disagree. Buying from eBay is buying from a reseller. I did not buy from the manufacturer.

I can (and will) answer Yes to that question, as I did not buy directly from a defendant.

Also, strangely, Sony products are excluded from the class action if one reads the fine print and/or completes the questionnaire.

Everyone I know received money (I think it was $20 or more if you had receipts) from the Activia one a while back.
