View Full Version : Paypal lawsuit email

07-29-2004, 09:39 AM
Did anybody get an email concerning a pending lawsuit against paypal and instructions for submitting your name for a possible share of the settlement?

The lawsuit was for $9 million and was over their supposed lack of posting a procedure for conflict resolution in their user agreement.

Let's see, if I sign on, after the attorney's fees, I should be eligible for about 43 cents /ccboard/images/graemlins/smile.gif

I received the same email.
Prolly legit unless they want my password.
Only scums, err lawyers, make money out of these class action suits anyway.

Was involved in a class action suit against a phone long distance provider. Settlement was in the millions, I got $73.00 I spent more on registered letters and making copies as well as long distance calls. The lawyer get like 40% of it all and the rest is divided between possibly millions of people. You could actually end up with less then a dollar in a successful suit and the lawyers make a few million.

It's legit.

Apparently, if PayPal ever froze your account or screwed up your money somehow, then you may be eligible. They've never screwed me up or froze my account, so I'm not eligible. You can fill out the short form for $50 or the long form for bigger damages.

Did you see the part about the attorney's fees? [ QUOTE ]
If the Court approves the proposed settlement, Class Counsel will make a motion to the Court for an award of attorneys' fees of up to $3,332,500 and reimbursement of expenses of up to $135,000, to be paid from the $9.25 million settlement fund.<hr /></blockquote>

Ok now I'm scared.

It sure looks legit, however I never pursued tracking down the case file. To much time for maybe two bits if qualified. Knowing California I'd be charged 37.50 just to view the docket. LOL
