Really? If I was a gambling man, I'd bet that John D(umb) Homeowner will see maybe a penny on the dollar if he's lucky.
I remember a few years ago I received a letter saying I was automatically included in a class-action lawsuit against Mastercard (?) over some sort of illegal fees they charged travelers using their cards while overseas. What ever.
Sure enough, a year later I opened my mail to find a settlement check....in the amount of $.18. That's eighteen CENTS. The lawyers got all the rest. Surprised? And as I recall, just to piss 'em off, I actually CASHED the check. Ha! Take that! :)
