EA Lawsuit Settlement Checks

#1 Edited by brutushayesosu (124 posts) -

Got my check in the mail today. Dated 10/29 so it took sometime to get to me in Ohio. Heads up to anyone that filled out the info way back when. I got $29.25. Not a lot, but it'll pay for about 1/2 a PS4 game, prob Battlefield 4. So EA is getting it right back.

Also, its the size of postcard and can be easily confused as junk mail.

Lawsuit?

Damn, was I supposed to fill something out? I thought I was only supposed to fill crap out if I wanted to retain the right to sue them myself.

Hopefully $20 will be coming my way.

So I just got my hands on this settlement check. Fun Facts:

1. I've never in my life owned a Madden, NCAA or other football game (maybe a SNES one back in the 90's, but that was a long time ago)

2. I simply cannot recall signing up or filling out anything to take part in this lawsuit and still received a check

The only conceivable way I could imagine that I was included is because a buddy of mine played a Madden game on my 360 a few years ago, and maybe he had to sign in to some sort of service for EA, and maybe my info was already there because I've played other EA titles. Maybe. Still, I'm sure as hell not gonna complain about an absolutely free $24.Thanks EA! This almost makes up for Dragon Age 2! (not really)
