AT&T Services, Inc. and several other defendants have reached a class action lawsuit settlement concerning deceptive advertising practices about modem rebates. If you purchased a DSL modem from AT&T in California with a mail-in rebate offer between 2003 and 2010, you could be entitled to receive cash benefits under the proposed class action settlement.
The AT&T modem settlement will resolve a class action lawsuit, entitled Gewalt v. AT&T Services, Inc., that claims AT&T and its vendor, ModusLink, deceptively advertised and failed to honor their promises to rebate the price of modems that were purchased by customers in conjunction with AT&T DSL service in California.
You’re considered a class member of the AT&T modem class action settlement if, during the period December 5, 2003 to December 20, 2010, you purchased a DSL modem from AT&T for use with DSL service in California, submitted a rebate claim in connection with the purchase of the DSL modem, and were not paid a rebate within 12 weeks of submitting your rebate claim form.
Here’s what you can get from the AT&T modem rebate settlement:
(I) If you mailed in a rebate claim form to AT&T and did not receive the rebate or an equivalent credit, you can claim a check equal to the cost paid for the modem plus 10%.
(II) If you did receive a rebate or credit from AT&T but did not receive it within 12 weeks of submitting your rebate claim, you can claim a check equal to 10% of the cost paid for the modem.
All you have to do to receive your cash refund from this settlement is to submit a valid claim form certifying that you meet the eligibility requirements to the Claims Administrator no later than March 22, 2011. Claim forms can be found at www.ATTModemRebateSettlement.com.
