January 20, 2017 — Consumers have until February 1 to join a class action lawsuit and get up to $500 per robocall offering a free cruise in exchange for answering a short political survey.
The phone calls were made between August 1, 2011 and August 31, 2012. If you do not remember if you received a call, check this database to see if your phone number was on the list.
You may also be able to sign up if you can prove you were called by one of these phone numbers in your telephone records, caller ID, voicemail recordings, or screenshots.
For more information, please visit www.FreeCruiseCallClassAction.net. You must sign up by February 1, 2017 to be eligible.
Lawyers said the calls were a “scam” and “marketing tool with no legitimate political basis.”
The call would start with a representative claiming to be from Political Surveys of America. After an individual answered a few questions, they were directed to a representative of Caribbean Cruise Lines.
Individuals were then offered a free 2-day cruise with another company — Celebration Cruise Line — and steered into sales presentations for timeshares and resort condominiums owned by Florida-based Berkley Group.
The class action lawsuit was filed in federal court in Illinois in 2012 by several people, including a man named Stephen Parkes who says he received 9 robocalls despite multiple attempts to remove himself from the “no-call” list.
