Notice of PS2 Class Action Settlement

Anybody heard of this??? Got that email this morning, don't know how they got my e-mail address???? Will not do anything about it but was just wondering if someone knew about this?




An Important Notice from the Superior Court of the State of California, County of San Mateo, United States and from the Ontario Superior Court of Justice, Canada, About a Class Action Settlement Involving the PS2


IF YOU OWN A PS2, YOU COULD GET BENEFITS FROM THE SETTLEMENT.



A proposed settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit concerning the performance of the PlayStation®2 computer entertainment system ("PS2"). You may be a member of the Class whose rights may be affected by this lawsuit. The sole purpose of this notice is to inform you of the lawsuit so that you may decide what steps to take in relation to it.
If the settlement is approved, Class Members who complete and return a Claim Form, on or before February 16, 2006, may be eligible to receive settlement benefits. The claim form may be accessed at www.PS2Settlement.com or obtained from the PS2 Settlement Administrator, c/o Rust Consulting, Inc., PO Box 1784, Faribault MN 55021-1784.
Whether you are entitled to benefits will depend upon which subclass you are in. You may also choose to exclude yourself from the settlement. There are deadlines associated with the choices you may make regarding the settlement, and the last day to submit completed claim forms, to object to the settlement or to opt out is February 16, 2006. More information describing your rights under the settlement, as well as instructions for filing a claim may be accessed by contacting the Settlement Administrator. To contact the Settlement Administrator, please access the website at www.PS2Settlement.com, call toll-free 1-800-352-5331, or write PS2 Settlement Administrator, c/o Rust Consulting, Inc., PO Box 1784, Faribault MN 55021-1784.

Re: Notice of PS2 Class Action Settlement

I got an even better one this afternoon:

Quote:
From: Mrs.Jewel Taylor
Fax: +448712470784
Email: [email protected]

First let me introduce myself,my name is Jewel Taylor,the third wife of the
ex-president of Liberia who just voluntarily stepped aside for the
installment of a new goverment in my country . At present I and my husband
have been exiled out of our country and we are seeking refuge in a
neighbouring country,where things are not really going on fine for us.Before
my husband relinquished his position as head of state,I had just concluded a
contract supply contract with the aid of a London based firm to supply and
install computer and electronics equipment to the tune of $45,000,000usd to
the office of the presidency.

This sum though was over-inflated and after full supply and installation,I
made a personal profit of $18,000,000usd,which I have stashed with a
security firm. What I require from you,is that you urgently assist me in
receiving this funds in your account as one of the contracted firms,and as
such guide away interest and attention from this money,that it belongs to me
or any of my family members.


At present all of me and my family's propertiesconfisticated and accounts
have been frozen in Liberia,and are even still out to lay there hands on any
funds that they can trace. Bearing this in mind,I need that you receive this
funds on my behalf,after which I shall reinvest,a bulk of this funds IN
SETTING UP A VIABLE BUSINESS IN YOUR COUNTRY OR INVESTING IN YOURS, this you
shall adviseupon and also run and manage on my behalf,with experience on
your side and after which I and my family would have relocated to your
country,with your assistance.

I await your response with confirmation of willigness to assist.

Thanks

Jewel Taylor

And then there's this asshole...

Re: Notice of PS2 Class Action Settlement

Ok I take that back... Looks like it could actually be legit. A friend of mine had 2 games wrecked by his PS2 when he used it in the vertical position... Sony wouldn't do anything for him. Looks like maybe some people got together and paid for some big lawyers to do something about it.

My PS2 is one of the newer slimline ones, I doubt I'd be eligible.

And then there's this asshole...

Class action lawyers don't typically charge any money up front as the payoffs are usually gigantic.

They are also usually initiated by people (normally other lawyers) who make their living looking for such cases to try.

Re: Notice of PS2 Class Action Settlement

I had mine vertical for 2 years then my Vice City got gouged and will no longer work. Have a bunch of scuffs on other ones as well. I placed it horizontal and it works better now. I have to check to see if I fall into any of those dates.

There are some who call me ............................Tim

You are supposed to call a doctor if this persists over 4 hours. You better call 911 being it been 2 years.

It's amazing how stupid some people can be.
