This was originally posted by gd78 but it was archived. Apparently it's supposed to pay out very soon.

Citibank NA agreed to pay $1.55 million to settle a class action lawsuit stemming over allegations that the banking giant listened-in on customer phone calls made to its toll-free line, without informing callers that they were being recorded.

Eligibility (California residents only):
Class Members include all individuals who participated in one or more phone conversations with Citibank at 800-745-1534 and were recorded or monitored without being informed between Apr. 3, 2013 and May 15, 2013.

Potential Award:
$350 – $2,500

Claim form:

This is a big payout, but note the short time window of when you had to have called them. You must provide the phone number that you used to call them at that number, so I'm sure they will match it up to their records.

Cue the comments about how only the lawyers are getting rich and class actions are a scam.
