Noll vs eBay Class Action Settlement

ebaylogo Here’s a new class action settlement that showed up in my inbox yesterday. This one is in place for those who have paid listing fees on Good ‘Til Canceled listings on eBay from September 2008 till June 2012. The amount would be calculated and added to your account automatically for you. Click here for more details.

Personally, I also fell victim to the confusing rules behind the “Good ‘Til Canceled”. Did you know that Good ‘Til Canceled are just 30 day listings that automatically get relisted on your behalf? So essentially if you leave you listing alone for 6 months, you will be charged 6 times the 30 day listing fee.  I can see why Noll won, it is very confusing, and I only found out the hard way after seeing extra listing fee charges on my monthly statement.  I’m glad somebody set that one straight with eBay.

Anybody else that fell victim to the GTC fees?


Fraley v. Facebook, Inc. Class Action Settlement

If you haven’t heard already, you most likely would be eligible for the Fraley vs. Facebook Class Action Settlement once the Court gives final approval to the Settlement. The Class Action is against Facebook’s new “Sponsored Story” feature where they might be inadvertently feature you to an audience you’re not aware of. Frankly, as a software engineer, I see mistakes like this very easy to occur.

Facebook would be paying out $20 million to fund this Class Action! But with the ginormous user pool that they have, everybody is expected to receive a maximum of $10 (it all depends on how many times they have featured you in a Sponsor Story.)

Keep an eye out on your inbox for an email regarding this class action. You will need your unique Class Action Member ID number (included in the email). For those who have young children, you can also submit a claim form on their behalf. Claim forms must be submitted before May 2, 2013. You can submit it electronically here.

Skechers Shape-Ups – giving me back some $$

Here is another settlement to participate in. The basis of the Grabowski v. Skechers U.S.A., Inc. settlement is that Skechers made false claims that customers will lose weight by wearing their shape-up line of shoes. This is similar to last year’s settlement with Reebok’s EasyTone line of shoes.

Payments that you can get are:

Shoes Initial Amount Maximum
Shape-up $40 $80
Resistance Runner $42 $50
Podded Sole Shoes $27 $40
Tone-ups $20 $80

Any claim with a total amount greater than $200 will require proof which you will need to Continue reading
