- Settlement Administrated can be contacted
Quite a buzz is sure to be created anytime a large group of consumers receive notice that they may be eligible to become up to $900 richer. With that being said, there are likely to be plenty of eyes focused on the recent settlement of the lawsuit titled Charvat v. Carnival et al. The settlement is set to resolve allegations that the Defendant (Resort Marketing Group, Inc. or RMG) made pre-recorded telemarketing calls to landlines and cell phones offering free cruises in violation of the TCPA. RMG, on the other hand, denies that it violated the TCPA or any similar laws. At this point it appears the court will never rule on the merits of either sides’ arguments due to the previously mentioned settlement. Those who believe they are eligible to receive compensation can get started with an online claim by going to the RMG TCPA Settlement page and clicking the File a Claim tab.
