PayPal

Has anyone else received a "notice of of class action and proposed settlement" from PayPal? Is this legitimate or am I looking at an elaborate phishing expedition? The Statutory Damage Fund Claimants form page does not appear to be working (12:41 a.m. EST, July 28, 2004) though it does appear to be a redirect from PayPal itself. Ok, now it is working (12:51 a.m. EST).

I received one of these babies too. Not too sure what to make of it.

It looks legit, but is it worth it? Take a look at the lawyer's cut. Then divide what is left by the probable size of a class. Then figure out how to spend your $5.00 or so.

I never did get my CD settlement money. I guess this will be as much "vaporware".
