You Could Be Owed Money if You Got a Robocall About a Cruise
This day in age it's very rare for us to pick up our phones when they ring; unless there's some kind of family emergency or it's our kids needing to be picked up from soccer practice, we just don't have time for small talk. Just text me, please.
But every so often, our curiosity gets the best of us and we just have to know who's on the other end of the phone when the caller ID displays (256)-483-4610 - Rogersville, Alabama. Who on earth could be calling you from Alabama?
That's when you answer it and after a second of dead air, you say "um helloooo," and an automated voice is suddenly on the line telling you, "congratulations, you've just won an all expense paid cruise.....to claim your prize press 1 now."
Sound familiar? If it does, then you're in luck, because according to WGN, that annoying robocall could get you $900.
A class action lawsuit against Resort Marketing Group claims that the third party travel agency made automated phone calls offering free cruises from 2009 to 2014. Sounds harmless, but according to the lawsuit, the group violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.
If you received a phone call from RMG, you could be eligible for up to $900.
I just checked my phone number and it's included. Yay. How about you?
