Actually it asks the recipient numerous times to visit the website or call the phone number to either go ahead with lawsuit or not go ahead.
A response is requested multiple times, and I would be very cautious doing so.

So you guys always just carelessly open whatever email arrives in your inbox? Can I get your email addresses?

It amazes me how naive some people still are when it comes to scams or cyber attacks through the Internet.

I got the email as well. Not sure what the lawsuit was over or what the "payoff" will be.

There is no payoff. Any money will go to charity. Basically if you want to join the lawsuit your portion will go to charity. I didn't bother reading the details of the lawsuit. I have no gripes with Netflix myself personally. So i have no vendetta toward them.

I received this email, my experience with Netflix was a free trial years ago and maybe I subscribed for a month or two after the trial before switching to Blockbuster. I had the minimum plan for whatever period I used the service, my share of any class action suit might round to a penny. I decided to quit reading after the first sentence and deleted the email which may or may not have been real but appeared to me that it was likely spam. I have to see a possible windfall of at least a dime before I would jump through the hoops necessary to be part of a class action suit. I am still waiting for my first dime, all I have ever received as a settlement is a discount on a future purchase which I have never made.

Default Is this BS or real?

There's a few reasons why I'm not to sure of it to be genuine..

1: I haven't seen this posted on any official sites, skynews, cnn so fort, the ones posted above I've never seen them so who is to say there genuine sites and not created just for this very scam.

2: It says "Please do not contact either the Defendants or the Court about this Settlement. Any and all callers will be directed to this website. If you have questions, please refer to the information posted here." Why can I not contact Netflix to confirm this?? To which I tried but no email address, I can't ring as I'm in Ireland.

3: To exclude yourself from this they look for your home address "To exclude yourself from the Settlement Class, you must send a letter saying that you want to be “excluded” from the Class in In re Netflix Privacy Litigation, No. 5:11-cv-00379-EJD. Your exclusion request must include your name, address, telephone number, signature, and a signed statement to the effect " and you must send your respond to a P.O box instead of an office??

And

4: Why the bloody hell are they adding me to their list so they can make money off of me, I don't like greedy people and this make's my blood boil.

I'm still two minds if this is real or not but I might be leaning more to a fake.

Seeing as this is posted in several newspapers to include WSJ and also a quick google of 'netflix class action lawsuits " will show numerous articles in papers and tech journals confirming this I am pretty damn certain it is real. 2) It does not ask numerous times for your personal info as people have stated and there is both a TELEPHONE number given for contact as well as a website provided - You only need to contact anybody if you are affected and wish to opt out or have objections to the proposed settlement- thereby reserving the right for you to individually sue Netflix if you so desire- if not then your damages are considered settled with the charity disbursement once the court ratifies the settlement and you can not claim damages later - pretty much a standard class action suit - WTF, where did the rest of you read or gather your assumptions from?

Uh- no it doesn't just like in any class action lawsuit you only contact somebody if you wish to OPT out and not be a part of the settlement and retain the rights to sue individually - if you accept a class action lawsuit you can not then later sue the entity for damages. Every class action suit will have an opt out contact point.

In every class action lawsuit, the people who choose to opt out are kept on a list maintained typically by legal counsel or a designated appointee - it has absolutely nothing to do with' making money off of you' This is so they know who retained the right to sue privately - Have you all never of a class action suit or are you unaware of what they are or how they work, (this is Standard Operating procedure) - if so why spread a bunch of FUD about stuff you clearly know nothing about.


PS the website is run by Rust Consulting the designated appointee and they have a privacy notice explanation posted.
