Zurich Direct Class Action Settlement Finally Arrived

Written by Nickel - 5 Comments

Bank Deal: Earn 1.00% APY on an FDIC-insured savings account at Barclays.

Remember that Zurich Direct class action lawsuit that I first told you about back in July? Since we chose to do nothing response to original notice, we remained a member of the ‘class’ and were thus entitled to a share of the $7,145,007.25 settlement.

Well, our settlement checks finally arrived. They were actually dated December 15th, and I’m amazed that they found their way to us since they were sent to an old address that we haven’t lived at since 2002. Care to guess how much we got? Our share was a whopping $2.52 — and they split it across two checks. Woohoo! Early retirement here we come!

  2. I received a class-action letter about the title company I used when I bought my house. It said I would be entitled to a discount coupon to use with the same company that is supposed to have cheated everyone. What a deal! I bet the lawyers won’t be getting any coupons.
