In 2007, yes 2007, we received letter saying some stock we'd bought was part of a class action lawsuit. I don't remember the particulars of it, except we were to send in something to the lawyers about it to be included in the class.
Well, for two years now I've had those two postcards on my bulletin board, postcards sent back to us to confirm the lawyers for whatever the issue was had received our bona fides.
So what do my wondering eyes should appear yesterday but a nice set of checks for several $$$ as part of the class settlement.
Only goes to show you that something that you think aren't worth your time actually pay off in the end!
