Legal Notice E-mail Not Scam


DECATUR- Some of you may have received an email from "legal notice" saying you're entitled to money through a class action lawsuit against facebook.  It's not a scam.

Facebook paid 20 million dollars to settle a class action suit.  That suit surrounds ads for sponsored story ads.

According to the the Fraley Facebook Settlement website: "Facebook unlawfully used Class Members' names, profile pictures, photographs, likenesses, and identities to advertise or sell products and services through Sponsored Stories, without obtaining Class Members' consent. Facebook denies any wrongdoing and any liability whatsoever. No court or other entity has made any judgment or other determination of any liability."

However, if your likeness was used, you may be entitled to a part of that settlement.  Because there are so many people who qualify, the maximum payout is $10.  In order to file a claim, go to this website
