Score Some Major Money if You Ever Received a Call About a Free Cruise!
Think of it as a way to get back at those annoying robocallers!
I don't know about you, but my phone has been ringing non-stop the past couple months.
Not because I'm a popular guy, or I'm needed for work - but because those damn robocallers have me tabbed and won't stop calling!
Well you might be thinking, "Well if you don't recognize the number, don't pick it up!" Sorry, but in my line of business when you're constantly making connections and meeting new people every day it's hard to ignore a call that might be an important interview or even a story for a blog.
Plus I have the same Winona cell number I've had since college, so now these machines are calling me randomly from Winona as well... ANNOYING.
Anyways, let's get to the best part and why you clicked this story: MONEY.
The Miami Herald reports that people who got a call about a cruise may be due $300 to $900 thanks to a class-action lawsuit.
The companies settled the suit, which alleged a violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, rather than go to trial. Which means that could be easy money in your pocket!
According to WESH, the settlement applies to people who got a call between July 2009 and March 2014 offering a free cruise from Carnival, Norwegian, or Royal Caribbean.

All claims must be submitted by November 3.
Aren't you glad you picked up the phone after all?

Earlier this year, someone tried to fool me with this scam but because I’d read about this earlier I was able to blow it off with no harm done.
