I just happened to add my number to the Do not call list.
I guess in this case it wasn't a 'you snooze you lose'. I jumped to soon!  >:(
Not so quick to be sad! I'll update when I get my $1500. That's when your cry will be acceptable.

Need a number that would work;)
I have nothing in common with lazy people who blame others for their lack of success. Great things come from hard work

I found a number of a family member of mine that works. I'm notifying him.
I only get a partial list of about 60 numbers of affected parties.  Is that random list the one where you found your relative's number?

I used the search tool linked above and just searched some numbers I remembered off the top of my head.

How terrible were these calls to be worth $500 of trauma?

Its the law that you're entitled to up to $500  per phone call. Doesn't make a difference where its from if ur on the DNC list

Is it actually a law? I understood that it's the total amount they are settling for, divided by roughly the number of defendants they expect to make a claim (minus legal fees). If you read up more you'll see that each defendant can potentially get even more than $500, in the event the above calculations lead to that.

I had a friend who used to do this for a living. He would always be advertising "$500 a phone call". I could be wrong, but I think it was a set fee for harassment or something. This was many years ago, so I may be wrong

Cannot expect a payment just yet. But possibly in the near future. https://www.freecruisecallclassaction.net/Faqs.aspx#q9

I checked the site and can't find mine on that. I remember that I got maybe dozens of calls from those "free cruise" men. Maybe the callers were from different company. I think if I could track down the numbers, I could have sued them, like what I read at http://www.whycall.me/news/my-4500-payday-from-a-telemarketer/.
