  Wow, I completely missed that one.  No one posted about it here.  Just curious, did you get a postcard for that one?

  No, it was an online claim form. I don't see it here either.....I stopped posting new ones when that AugustFour clown was around and guess I forgot to come back and add it.

  That user is gone, so please add any to the list, thanks

  Even though I don't post my checks, I appreciate others posting theirs when the checks initially arrive.  That's how I know to expect mine, in case mine never arrives. I've had to request check re-issues in the past because of lost checks.

I think it's fine for ONE posting that a refund check has been received, but 3, 4, 7... no, I also think that clutters the thread. 

Why should everyone have to be "appreciative" to learn that a third or fifth random person has received a check for something that we've already been alerted by one poster (the first poster) is now in the mail?  Back-to-back posts on the same checks that are being received -- no, I'm not especially appreciative of this.

Especially now that people don't always post on this thread about class actions that are current and that they themselves are submitting claims for, yet they come to this thread later to tell others when they have received the payment for those (such as the several mentions here of people getting Fitflop checks, which I could have made $75 on, if I had known about the class action suit, but it was never mentioned here in this thread until the checks started rolling in). 

I would not say that I had expected other people to be looking out for the group here at the same time as they have been looking out for themselves, unless I was not doing that myself:  I always post on this thread any class actions I hear about (after doing a search to make sure that they have not already been mentioned here), even if it is something that I personally cannot participate in.  For the last few years, I have even pulled other people's mentions of class actions on other forums of Fatwallet (Finance, Deal Discussion, etc.) and linked them to this thread, so that the most people possible can learn about them.  I also have campaigned a couple of times in my 8 (or whatever) year spell on FW for this thread to be stickied, during times when it was removed from being a sticky.  (Therefore, I don't worry in the slightest if someone wants to say that I am not "appreciative", because I've made adequate contributions to this thread/topic.)

However, I have learned (and I have been PM'd about this too) that this thread has evolved into mostly a reporting page about refund checks that are received, and is not really a major source of spreading the word about new class actions, and that there are other websites that one should look at, to stay in the loop, if one is interested in class actions.  It seems that most FW people who are interested in taking advantage of class action lawsuits already know that, and do that, and correspondingly there is less and less of an emphasis on making sure that this thread gets notice of new class action suits before their deadlines.

Part of the reason for that is probably the fact that someone, I forget the details, though it's recorded in this thread I believe, was copying and pasting multiple class actions to this thread from a class action newsletter/blog, and was publicly on this thread asked to stop doing that (he/she probably worded it more gently, I don't remember) by the author of that newsletter/blog, so maybe other people here felt hindered from announcing new class actions on this thread, since they might be accused of simply passing on information that someone else has already collected and published. 

It's a shame that this had to happen, because the information really isn't "owned" in the sense of individual artistic effort, but it does take time and effort to compile such info, and I do see how it would be frustrating to have one's work used without attribution.

I personally don't often go round to other internet sites to see what the latest class actions are, and I take the passive approach of catching the odd one mentioned here on FW, and I am okay with that.
If someone really wants to know about all the class actions available, they should not rely on this thread. 
If they want to then come back to this thread and describe some of the current (pre-deadline) class actions that they have found, I'm sure people here would be appreciative of that. 
And it's great that people come here when they've received a check in the mail, if they are the first poster about that, which will alert everyone else that the payments have been mailed out.  It's not too helpful for other people to jump in and say "I got one too", but I do understand it gives some a sense of community to do that.  (And of course, some people get different amounts than others, and there can be good lessons to learn about why that happens.)
But if there is a class action that you have applied for, that you didn't see here, and that you didn't mention here, it really isn't that helpful to come back 9 or 12 or 24 months later and tell people here that you've received the payout for it; especially if you are the third or fourth person who wants to share the happy news.

  Site wording seems to imply only if you received:
"This website is intended to provide additional documents and information for those persons or entities who received a Class Action Settlement notice in the mail or via fax "
So not for everyone who may be affected buty not recd a notice?

I would love to have a sticky thread where we could have the sharing of current active Class Actions like we used to (not certain who took issue with who ever was posting links to available Class Actions or why this seemed to be such a sore enough spot that people stopped posting but to those people who are basically in it for themselves - too bad - suck it up buttercup - this is FW FORUM - a deal / information SHARING site - not your personal gains site).  Not all of us have the links to whatever web engines / pages that keep track of Class Actions that are currently available (if any of you nice FWalleters out there have a few resources for this information, please share with the rest of us, or maybe someone can PM me so I can book mark, look these up? TIA.) 

I know I'm not one of the type of people who join a CA just to get  5 bucks here or 10 bucks there. I only join when its something that I've bought and been a part of. If the concern is people who scam these CAs and that's why the postings have gone so minimal, sadly, there's no way for anyone to prevent fraudulent activity from happening whether its made available on FW Forums or on ANY web page. A scam artist with a computer has access to both, so what is the real harm in posting the CAs in FW Forums?

 It's ironic that a page of rambling drivel about polluting the thread gets green. Checks are normally mailed out in batches based upon state/zipcode....sometimes over a couple weeks.....it is useful to know when people are receiving checks for that reason.

This one is tricky they have a list of numbers they called so when you enter your number they check against their database.
So if you did get a call you might get huge settlement since not many will qualify.

~~Wells Fargo has agreed to pay the sum of $13,859,103.80 (the "Settlement Fund") to settle the lawsuit. All Class Members that meet the claims requirements set forth below ("Eligible Claimants") will receive an equal  pro rata share of the Settlement Fund after Settlement Costs are deducted from the Settlement Fund. Settlement Costs include the costs of notice and claims administration, attorneys' fees and costs and payment of an Incentive Award to the named class representative, as detailed herein. Each Eligible Claimant that submits a valid claim by June 9, 2015 , will receive a pro rata payment

 Cash Payments to Class Members: Defendant has agreed to create an $11 million Settlement Fund, from which Class Members who submit valid claims will receive cash payments. To get a payment, Class Members must submit a valid claim before the deadline of July 22, 2015. The amount Class Members will receive will depend on the total number of valid claims received. If the number of valid claims is low, then the amount of individual payments will go up. But if the number of valid claims is high, then the amount of individual payments will go down.If the individual payments per Settlement Class Member would be less than $15, you will have a second chance to exclude yourself from the Settlement or Walgreens may pay you the difference up to $15. The Settlement Administrator will post additional information about the payment amount on this website if necessary.

This suit exemplifies why people hate lawyers:
"The suit concerns whether Walgreens violated a federal law called the Telephone Consumer Protection Act by making prerecorded calls to the cellular telephones of certain pharmacy customers to remind them when their prescriptions at Walgreens were due for refill (“Prerecorded Prescription Calls”). Walgreens denies any wrongdoing and maintains that Prerecorded Prescription Calls are necessary medical alerts that its customers want, and are made with their consent and authorized by law. The Settlement does not establish who is correct, but rather is compromise to end the lawsuit."

You have to read the complaint to get the full story:

"In January 2012, Defendant implemented an automated system that included robocall refill reminders. These calls were not alerts informing a consumer that a requested prescription had been filled; rather, they were “reminders” encouraging consumers to refill an eligible prescription at a Walgreens pharmacy. In essence, because Defendant realizes that consumers have numerous choices of where to have their prescriptions filled, the robocall “reminders” serve as advertisements to draw consumers back to a Walgreens pharmacy. Therefore, the robocalls were not made as informational updates, but rather commercial solicitations."
