Clicksettlement.com? Class Action?

Discussion in 'Legal Issues' started by Joobz, May 20, 2006.

    Has anyone received an email from an alleged site called clicksettlement? The email came from domain xmr3.com and the attachment was a PDF called LegalNotice.pdf. The email is as follows:
    SEMrush
    Title:
    Important Legal Notice Regarding Your Google AdWords Account

    Body:
    This court-ordered notice may affect your legal rights. Please read it carefully. If you purchased online advertising from Google between January 1, 2002 and the present, you are a class member in a class-action lawsuit in the Circuit Court of Miller County, Arkansas. This notice is to inform you of the Court’s certification of a class; the nature of the claims alleged; your right to participate in, or exclude yourself from, the class; a proposed settlement; and how you can claim an award of advertising credits under the settlement. Please read the attached notice.

    Looks very spammy and scammy to me

    Should I forward this to Google? Any suggestions?

    I received the same e-mail.

    I made a post about it too.

    I think it's a desperate call to action against Google, trough SPAM.

    Yes, and I use a special email for my adwords account - and they sent it to that email - was Google ordered to share our personal email information with this firm?

    I got it too and just deleted it without opening the attachment. Figured it was spam or a virus.

    Just got the same email about 15 minutes ago. I know I applied and was accepted, but never used the program.
