Spam or not?

No idea, and don't really care, to be honest.

Just found it mildly interesting slash amusing.

 

 

You Can Get a Cash Payment or Credit Monitoring and Insurance Services to Protect Your Information That May Have Been Taken in the KROGER FTA DATA BREACH.

 

A federal court has authorized this Notice. This is not a solicitation from a lawyer.

 

Para una notificación en Español, llamar 1-866-790-4318 o visitar nuestro sitio web
www.KrogerFTADataBreachSettlement.com.

 

 

 

A proposed Settlement has been reached with The Kroger Co. (Kroger or Defendant) relating to the data breach Kroger announced on February 19, 2021, whereby on or about January 23, 2021, Kroger learned that an unauthorized person(s) breached Accellions File Transfer Appliance (FTA) and accessed certain Kroger customer and employee information, including names, email addresses, phone numbers, home addresses, dates of birth, Social Security numbers, information to process insurance claims, prescription information, medical history, certain clinical services, and/or salary-related information (the FTA Data Breach). Credit card or other payment information was not compromised or accessed during the FTA Data Breach. This was the result of a data breach involving Krogers file transfer vendor, Accellion. Plaintiffs claim that Kroger did not adequately protect their personal information. Kroger denies any wrongdoing. No judgment or determination of wrongdoing has been made. 

 

Who is Included? Records indicate you are included in this Settlement as one of Kroger customers and employees who were notified that their personal information was compromised as a result of the FTA Data Breach. 

 

What does the Settlement Provide? The Settlement establishes a $5 Million Settlement Fund to be used to pay for costs of notice and administration; attorneys fees and expenses; service awards to the Class Representatives; and to provide Credit Monitoring and Insurance Services, Documented Loss Payments for reimbursement of Documented Losses, or Cash Fund Payments to valid claimants. Also, Kroger has agreed to undertake certain remedial measures and enhanced data security measures. Payments to valid claimants will be made from the Fund in the following order:

 

Credit Monitoring - two years of Credit Monitoring and Identity Theft Insurance Service for protection from future harm. 

 

Documented Loss Payment - reimbursement for certain Documented Losses, i.e., money spent or lost, as a result of the Data Breach (up to $5,000), not otherwise reimbursable by insurance. 

 

Cash Fund Payment  you may submit a Cash Fund Payment claim for a cash payment, in an amount to be determined consistent with the Settlement, if you do not make a claim for a Documented Loss Payment or Credit Monitoring. 

 

All payments may be increased or reduced pro rata depending on the number of Class Members that participate in the Settlement.

 

How To Get Benefits: You must complete and submit a Claim Form by March 5, 2022, including required documentation. You can file your Claim online here. You may also get a paper Claim Form at the website, or by calling the toll-free number, and submit by mail.

 

Your Other Options. If you do not want to be legally bound by the Settlement, you must exclude yourself by February 18, 2022. If you do not exclude yourself, you will release any claims you may have against Kroger or related parties about the Data Breach, as more fully described in the Settlement Agreement, available at the settlement website. If you do not exclude yourself, you may object to the Settlement by February 18, 2022

 

The Fairness Hearing. The Court has scheduled a hearing in this case (Cochran vs. The Kroger Co., U.S.D.C. Case No. 5:21-cv-01887) for March 10, 2022, at 9:00 a.m., to consider: whether to approve the Settlement, Service Awards, attorneys fees and expenses, as well as any objections. You or your attorney may attend and ask to appear at the hearing, but you are not required to do so.

 

More Information. Complete information about your rights and options, as well as Claim Forms, the Long Form Notice, and Settlement Agreement are available here, or by calling toll free 1-866-790-4318.

I got the same email today 12/8/21. I called Kroger at 800-576-4377 and asked this alleged class action claim be verified. It does appear legit as a Federal Court docket case number is listed and no money is being solicited. I am waiting for a call back.

In general, you've got better chances of winninng a power ball lottery than collecting $$ from a class action suit or settlement. Most of these legal advisories are just to cover people's asses.

 Thats not true. There was a class action lawsuit for Nissan Sentra models a year ago after my transmission went out after 70,000 miles and Nissan offered to 80% of the repair and my portion 20% or $1,400. I looked it up and found there was a lawsuit about it and filed a claim and got my money back after a few months through the class action lawsuit website.

 Yeah it is too true. You were an extremely rare exception. 

That's why I said 'in general', Dr. Hawking.

I got one of those cards and asked management about it. They told me that even if I don't do anything I'll still get a check in the mail. The catch is that all of the legal fees and such will need to be paid off first. I'll probably get enough for a tank of gas.
