Gamestop Class Action Settlement! Claim FREE Money Just for Shopping!
Gamestop Class Action Settlement has been approved for the Data Breach that happened from 2016-2017 for shoppers online and in store.
Did you shop at Gamestop online or in store from September 2016 to February 2017? You may be entitled to a cash payment from the Gamestop Class Action Settlement! I remember when this Data Breach happened, my bank was notified before I was and canceled my card to prevent any misuse.
Gamestop Class Action Settlement:
There were two Plaintiffs Crystal Bay and Samuel Cook who filed a class action lawsuit over the data breach that Gamestop had from 2016-2017. The data breach exposed personal information like names, emails, debit and credit card numbers and much more. Some Gamestop customers had their cards fraudulently used as a result of this data breach. The lawsuit was filed to pay back the customers for all the expenses they acquired from this data breach and customers who were affected.
How much will I get if I file a claim?
