I would recommend everyone to make a copy of the web site and consult a attorney. That way u will know if it is real or not we only have until sept.17,2010. Good luck to everyone on this. Will let u know what I find out an,let me know what u find out. Theresa
Just keep in mind that this is Transunion attorneys giving us this information at the last minute! Look hard for the right attorney for this issue. Everyone have a good day. let me know what u all find out. This is going to be interesting.
I looked at th claim form - they only want basic contact info from you... SSN or other acct numbers are not required. They only want which companies you dealt with (e.g. Chase, Citibank, etc...)
Also, the same law firm has a class action lawsuit against BP for the oil spill.
I want to be part of the lawsuit. Mod Cut!

I typed a long version - an error occured so short version is: A quick, good Google search will reveal the TU URL. $75 million of which about $50million is left for eligible class-members. Many will ignore. Paranoia will stop many. The less people who sign-up the larger the settlement - for people like me. Obama was not involved in any phase of this - not arrangements nor settlement fund structuring; that should tell you it's legit. SSN is required as well as DOB, current address, phone - all the information needed if it's legit or a con. Don't take a chance, it will affect the amount of my settlement.

I strongly suggest that you first call the Fed Trade Commission (FTC) for sound legal advise.
They are the legislative and administrative body charged under botth the FCRA and the FDCPA for compliance with the provisions of the statutes.
Hi , I have seen the same ad several timesand I am wondering if its legit and if it is what I have to do
to continue about this.
Other websites offer the same service and all are suspect to me. In the 2 CALs I had been involved with, I was notified by the company of my eligibility for compensation. The lure of free credit monitoring isn't very powerful vs. the months of pain required to resolve ID theft isn't worth it.
Besides this, anyone here been really damaged by this? Emotional damage and years of therapy for recieving junk mail or spam emails or a phone calls. If legit, the government can have my share to pay down debt or take the money and give it to charity.
