    That Obnoxious Telemarketing Call Might Have Earned YOU $900 — Here’s How

    You probably have never heard a friend or loved one wax poetic on the exciting deals offered by an unsolicited telemarketing call — and for good reason — considering the folks on the other end of the line collectively possess an uncanny talent for interrupting dinner.

    lawsuit

    In fact, aggressive robocalls led to a class action settlement — one which you may be able to claim.

    Philip Charvat originally filed the lawsuit, contending Resort Marketing Group breached the Telephone Consumer Protection Act with its robotic calls he had not agreed in advance to receive.

    “The TCPA imposes substantial penalties on companies that knowingly violate its telemarketing restrictions,” explains Paul Tassin. “It generally forbids telemarketers from making calls using automated dialing equipment and prerecorded messages, unless the person being called has given the caller prior express written consent to be contacted that way.”

    “Rather than have the case go to trial, the companies decided to settle. A federal judge granted preliminary approval of the settlement in July, which requires the involved companies to create a settlement fund worth between $7 million and $12.5 million, depending on how many claims are filed,” the Miami Herald reports.

    If you received a call between July 2009 and March 2014 about cruises with Carnival, Norwegian, or Royal Caribbean from Resort Marketing Group, you, too, could soon have a check for between $300 and $900 — simply enter your phone number here to see if the lawsuit applies to you.

    Free money remains an oxymoron, but in cases of corporate wrong, sometimes a chance exists to exact a bit of vengeance for all those interrupted meals.

    Officials In South Carolina Are Warning Citizens Of Possible Lizard Man Sightings During The Eclipse

    This sounds fake, but really, it is not. Authorities in South Carolina are advising citizens that it is entirely possible that people will see the Lizard Man during the Great American Eclipse, which happens on August 21.

    Sightings of the South Carolina Lizard Man have been reported on a consistent basis for decades

    The creature is most often described as being around seven-feet tall and covered in scales, with red, glowing eyes.

    SCEMD included a map of Lizard Man sightings in the tweet, advising residents of Lee and Sumter counties to “remain ever vigilant.”

    The original Lizard Man was first seen in 1988 by Jim Wilson in Bishopville, South Carolina.

    The Great American Eclipse is the first total solar eclipse the United States has seen since 1979. On August 21, the total solar eclipse will be seen from Portland, Oregon, extending down through the heartland and eventually ending up in South Carolina.

    People may even see Bigfoot during the Great American Eclipse, which happens on August 21.

    Authorities expect he, too, might join the Lizard Men to come out for the big eclipse.

    If you live in South Carolina and happen to see any of these creatures take out your camera and snap a pic for us.

    It should go without saying, but if you happen to stumble across either Big Foot or Lizard Man, please do not shoot them. First and foremost – it could be a human playing a prank. And secondly, you shouldn’t just go shooting creatures willy nilly.
