Get a call about a free cruise? You could get up to $900

If you’ve ever gotten a robocall that said you won a free cruise you could get a check for up to $900! 

Resort Marketing Group just settled a class action suit that claimed it broke federal law by robocalling Americans. 

That company admitted it bought people’s information from a data broker, then robocalled them, saying they’d won a free cruise on Carnival, Royal Caribbean or Norwegian Cruise lines. 

A federal judge just signed off on the settlement, which allows everyone who got one of those calls to make a claim for up to $300 for each call they received on their home or cell number. 

There is a $900 cap per person.

But there’s a catch: Unlike some class action settlements which use the honor system, your phone number must be in the robocallers’ database in order to make a claim!

The Simply Money point: The firm handling the settlement has made it easy to check to see if your number is in that database! 

Go here to check your phone number or file a claim
