We’re opening this issue with an investigation into a handful of poster and canvas art websites – including PosterStore.com and AllCollectives.com – and need to hear from people who bought items on sale from the sites. It’s possible they were tricked into thinking they were getting a good deal and actually ended up overpaying. You can find more on that below.
From there, we have investigations into PHH Mortgage over letters reportedly sent to borrowers who fell behind on their payments and prison operator CoreCivic over concerns correctional officers may not be getting paid properly.
Then, it’s no secret that we’ve seen a substantial amount of data breaches in recent months, so we’ve created a page that details several of these incidents and explains how class action lawsuits could help. Keep reading for the details, as well as the latest in class action settlements.
Several websites that sell posters and canvas art online are under scrutiny as attorneys have reason to believe that while they advertise their goods as being “on sale,” the products were never actually sold at their higher, “regular” price. Other online sellers may have advertised limited-time deals that weren’t actually limited. Attorneys are now investigating whether customers were deceived into thinking they were getting a better deal than they actually were and buying art they otherwise would not have. If so, it’s possible that class actions could be filed to help consumers get some of their money back. Head to this page for more on the investigation and the websites in question.
For those who received notice of default letters from PHH Mortgage, attorneys are investigating whether the notices contained false threats of acceleration and foreclosure to intimidate borrowers into paying their past due amounts within a certain time frame. It’s believed that these letters may have violated a federal debt collection law, and a class action lawsuit is now being considered on behalf of letter recipients. If you received a notice of default letter from PHH Mortgage Services, learn more on this page.
Our settlements page is always being updated. Have you checked to see if you're covered by any open settlements? You can also check out the latest settlements as they happen by following us on Twitter.
Attorneys working with ClassAction.org are investigating whether a lawsuit can be filed against CoreCivic for potentially failing to pay its correctional officers in accordance with federal labor law. Specifically, it’s believed that the for-profit prison operator may have unlawfully required certain employees to work off the clock before and after their shifts without pay – including during required security screenings – and may have denied them time-and-a-half overtime wages when they worked more than 40 hours per week. As part of their investigation, the attorneys need to speak with current and former CoreCivic correctional officers as they work to determine whether a lawsuit can be filed. Learn more here.
Several companies are under investigation for how they secure consumer data in light of recent data breaches. Specifically, attorneys are looking into whether lawsuits can be filed against Blue Cross Blue Shield Arizona, Cornwell Quality Tools, Data Media Associates, Delaware Life Insurance Company, Jaco Oil Company, Lifeline Systems Company, Standard Insurance Company, and Vivendi Ticketing after they each recently reported data security incidents. If you received a data breach notice on behalf of one of these companies, you may be able to help get a lawsuit on file. Read up on the details here.
