If You Got A Spam Call About A Free Cruise You May Be Owed Up To $900

The Free Cruise Scam and its notorious phone calls have been going around for years. The good news is that, if you received a spam phone call congratulating you on winning a free cruise you could be eligible for up to $900 in restitution, according to the The Sacramento Bee.

A class action lawsuit against Resort Marketing Group, called Charvat v. Carnival et al, which claims that Carnival, Royal Caribbean, and Norwegian Cruise Line authorized Resort Marketing Group to make “robocalls” to offer people free cruises between July 2009 and March 2014.

According to the lawsuit, these calls may have violated the FCC’s Telephone Consumer Protection Act.

Last month, the plaintiff reached a settlement that will create a fund of between $7 million and $12.5 million for those who got the spam calls, according to the Bee. You can get a maximum of $300 for each call, and you can claim up to three calls for each phone number (for a total of $900).

 

Find Out If Your Phone Number Is Part Of The Settlement

Since you probably don’t remember when exactly received the call, do you want to find out if your phone number is on the list provided?
