I dont really give a crap but when iif they are going to red for me pointing out a fact, they need to get a self evaluation and learn where things are to be posted and even offer up a deal once in a while rather than to scour FW looking to red people inappropriately..

  Speculating about why you got red will not get you anywhere. 
 While I do appreciate your thoughts about sharing, but you actually posted a topic that has been on FW from 8-16 and then complained about the poster not posting in the correct class action forum.

  I gave you red for complaining about getting red.  Posts discussing the merits of red and green (including this one) do nothing but clutter up threads. Nobody wants to read ten posts discussing how something should have been received.

  Wasn't a complaint at all.. It was pointing it out.  There is a huge difference.  So, you go through life with the tude that if someone points something out to you that is incorrect, you fault them for it?  Seriously?  That's the real issue.

Also... posted on 8/16 you say... Have you read anything in this thread?  I, and others, did not see it there because THIS (DD) is where we come to look for class actions.... not in finance.

  The post wasn't about that at all...  maybe you should have followed it more closely if it bothers you that I pointed out that the original post was in wrong area after the fact that it was pointed out to me that it was already posted..  And THEN the reds started... before I even mentioned anything else. And THEN I updated my post.  What I see is a low tolerance for me stating that the post belonged in DD.... which it should be in.  

This was the initial response from me...  "Ahhh.. I see... Somebody posted in the wrong area"  <--- A complaint?  Whaaaaat?  really?

I have no issues keeping class actions to myself in the future and good deals.  

What have you two contributed lately?  Ya.. thought so

Other than a user with a connection to a summer month, I think MOST people do not search for class action postings anywhere. They are much more likely to see a posting for a product that they have used and see that they are eligible for a class action.

Dear Claimant:
On July 24, 2014, you were sent an email advising you that all appeals in the LCD Indirect Purchaser Class Action Settlement had been dismissed and that the final steps necessary to disburse recoveries to Claimants were proceeding. This email is to provide you with an update on the status of these claim processing activities and the anticipated schedule for distributing checks. You will not receive any further email updates on the status of these procedures unless there is some significant unforeseen delay.
We have now completed the claim audit/verification process. Class Counsel and the Attorneys General submitted a motion seeking approval from the Court to disburse payments to Claimants. The Court is currently scheduled to consider the motion on October 17, 2014. After Court approval is granted, distribution checks will be mailed. It is anticipated that this will occur within four weeks of Court Approval.
You are being sent this email because you filed a claim. Receipt of this email does not mean that your claim has been deemed eligible. If you would like to know if anything further is needed for your claim, or if you have questions, email the Notice Administrator at info@lcdclass.com or call the toll-free hotline at 1-855-225-1886.

Looks you would need more than just an "it hurts" to claim compensation for this.

You may file a claim if you believe you were injured by a vaccine; if you are the parent or legal guardian of a child or disabled adult believed to have been injured by a vaccine; or the legal representative of the estate of a deceased individual whose death you believe was caused by a vaccine. An injury must have lasted for more than 6 months after the vaccine was given or resulted in a hospital stay and surgery.All claims must be filed with the U.S. Court of Federal Claims and must include the claim (or petition) and two copies, a Court of Federal Claims cover sheet, medical records and/or other documentation, and a $400 filing fee.Compensation varies, depending on the injury, and can include as much as $250,000 for pain and suffering, lost earnings, legal fees, and/or a reasonable amount for past and future care. For a death, you may receive as much as $250,000 for the estate and legal fees.You must file your claim within 3 years after the first symptom of the vaccine injury or within 2 years of a death and 4 years after the start of the first symptom of the vaccine injury that resulted in the death.

I moved and had no problem receiving mine at my current address. When you moved, did you use the change-of-address form from the USPS and have your mail forwarded to your new address? They should have been able to get your current address through the USPS, if you filed an address change with them.

AT&T To Pay $105 Million To Customers – Here’s How To Get Your Money

Listen up, AT&T customers: You may be in for a refund.AT&T has agreed to pay $105 million for “cramming” unauthorized charges on the monthly bills of its wireless customers, federal and state regulators announced Wednesday.The charges — typically $9.99 per month — came from third-party services for things like trivia, horoscopes and love tips. AT&T is accused of keeping at least 35% of the fees, as well as obscuring the charges on bills and preventing customers from securing full refunds.The deal is the largest cramming settlement in history, and includes the Federal Communications Commission, the Federal Trade Commission, as well as all 50 states plus the District of Columbia.

So they are paying $10 per month for the last 6 years per line?? I have had 3 lines through AT&T since 2009 until now.... so when I calculated it this would give me a refund of $2,160. Does this sound right to you??

Did you have charges of $9.99 billed to your wireless numbers for "Monthly Subscriptions" that resulted in unwanted text messages ("offering trivia, ringtones, flirting tips, celebrity gossip, and the like") being sent to those phones?  If you didn't, then you probably can't make a claim.

"...hard copies of bills hid them in a category called “AT&T Monthly Subscriptions,” despite the fact that the charges were placed by third-party content providers."
See the correct place to look on the example bill here:  http://business.ftc.gov/blog/2014/10/att-gets-105-million-wake-call-about-mobile-cramming  

"For current customers billed for unauthorized third-party charges, AT&T must notify them of the settlement and refund program by text, email, paper bill insert, and notification on an online bill.
Former customers may be contacted by the FTC’s refund administrator.
Consumers can visit the FTC's refund page for more information."

Chase Bank Automated Telephone Calls and Text Messages Class Action

"A proposed settlement of a class action lawsuit brought against Chase Bank USA, N.A. and JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A. (collectively, “Chase”) by several consumers (“Plaintiffs”) has been reached in the United States District Court for the Northern District of Illinois (Gehrich v. Chase, Case No. 1:12-CV-5510).

Plaintiffs allege that Chase violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, 47 U.S.C. § 227, et seq. (“TCPA”), by making automated telephone calls (i.e., using an automatic telephone dialing system and/or an artificial or prerecorded voice) and sending text messages to cell phones, including Collection Calls and Automatic Alerts, in connection with Chase credit card and bank accounts without the prior express consent of the people contacted."

"You are in the Settlement Class if, on or after July 1, 2008 through December 31, 2013, you received:
1.Collection Calls relating to a Chase credit card or bank account
2.Automatic Alerts relating to a Chase credit card or bank account, and you were the intended recipient of the communication [NOTE:  People in this group CANNOT file a claim]; or
3.Automatic Alerts relating to a Chase credit card or bank account, and you were not the intended recipient of the communication. "

"The following persons in the Settlement Class are eligible to submit a Claim Form and receive a cash payment:
(1) persons who received Collection Calls relating to a Chase credit card or bank account; and
(2) persons who received Automatic Alerts and were not the intended recipient of the communications.
Depending upon their relationship with the Chase entity that placed the calls, Plaintiffs estimate that each eligible Settlement Class Member will receive a cash award of $20-40 per claim. This is an estimate only."

deadline to file a claim:  February 9, 2015

the above quotations are from:  http://www.gehrichtcpasettlement.com/index  -- that site is also where you can learn how to submit a claim

----
Note that those people whose circumstances only fit the bolded "number 2" group in the settlement class are not eligible to submit a claim.

----------------
Where I first saw a mention of this class action: 
There was an article about it on another financial website that I happened to land on when looking into a checking account bonus offer.  I am not sure if FW allows direct linking to a competitor website or not so I won't post its url (unless they want me to).  I searched on FW but didn't see this class action suit mentioned anywhere, so I thought I'd spread the word here.

WELCOME TO THE MILLER ET AL. V. GHIRARDELLI WEBSITE

Attention purchasers of Ghirardelli Products
This class action settlement will resolve a lawsuit against Defendant Ghirardelli Chocolate Company (“Defendant”). The lawsuit claims that consumers were potentially confused or misled into thinking that a product labeled as “Premium Baking Chips – Classic White” or “Premium Baking Chips – Classic White Chips” (“White Chips”) was white chocolate chips. The lawsuit also claims that Defendant labeled and marketed as “all natural” certain products (the “Products”) that were allegedly not “all natural.” (Click here for the complete list of Products). Ghirardelli stands by its labeling and marketing and denies that it did anything wrong.

To settle the case, Defendant will pay $5,250,000.00 into a settlement fund. Each member of the class who submits a valid claim form will receive $1.50 for each purchase of White Chips and $0.75 for each purchase of any of the other Products. Your total recovery will be limited to $24.00, unless you submit proof of purchase, in which case there is no limit. If there is not enough to pay all Valid Claims and expenses, the amounts will be reduced. Any leftover funds after payment of attorneys’ fees, payments to the class representatives, class notice and administration expenses, and payment of Valid Claims will go to charitable organizations.
