Hurry! That annoying robocall about a ‘free cruise’ could get you $900

UPDATE:  Check your email if you found yourself eligible to submit a claim in CHARVAT V. RESORT MARKETING GROUP — the deadline to submit documentation, i.e. showing you are attached to the phone number in question, is May 1, 2018.

According to RMG TCPA Settlement Administrator emails, over two million claims were filed by consumers who received publication notice of the settlement.

Submitting documentation now is to filter out the fakers because an ‘unknown but substantial number of claims filed in this manner may be fraudulent.’

Documentation can include a phone bill, a reference in a phone directory confirming your connection to the phone number, or anything else that allows independent verification of you owning or subscribing to the phone number.

You can submit in one of three ways:

Web portal at RMGTCPASettlement.com

OR email administrator@rmgtcpasettlement.com

OR snail mail (hurry!) to:
Foreman Friedman PA
Attn: Class Action Supplemental Notice Claims
2 South Biscayne Boulevard, Suite 2300
Miami, Florida 33131

Good luck!

Original story:

Have you received one of those annoying robocalls saying you won a free cruise? That phone call could now get you up to $900 thanks to a class action lawsuit. 

The lawsuit claims Resort Marketing Group (RMG), a third-party travel agency, made pre-recorded robocalls from July 2009 to March 2014 offering free cruises with Carnival, Royal Caribbean, and Norwegian Cruise Line. The lawsuit claims the cruise lines authorized the company to make calls on their behalf.

The agency, referred to as “Travel Services” during the calls, violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, according to the lawsuit.

A settlement was agreed to last month and a fund of at least $7 million and up to $12.5 million will be established and maintained for eligible members.

Each call you received from RMG will have a maximum value of $300. You can claim up to three calls per telephone number included in the official call records for a maximum of $900 per number.

You can check your phone number here to determine if you’re eligible to submit a claim.

All claims must be submitted by November 3.
