So here's how you get your money. The settlement covers phone accounts belonging to individuals, small businesses and local governments. The time period is for billings mad between April 27, 2005 through February 28, 2012. You will either be able to make a "full payment claim" --presumably by providing detailed proof-- or a "flat payment claim" for $40 with fewer hoops to jump through. Once the settlement receives final approval from the judge, the forms will be available here. The deadline is November 15 of this year. If you'd like more information, you can contact the settlement administrator at www.verizonthirdpartybillingsettlement.com or call 1-877-772-6219.
The website and toll free number weren't working as I wrote this, but are supposed to be working by March 9, 2012. And how about that? A class action settlement with a PHONE NUMBER you can call for information. It's only fitting!
