Arty Versus Crafty

It is great when you can make some money by putting your arty skills to good use. Sadly but true, there are some however who are making money of others by being crafty.
Let me give you an illustration of what I mean with this real-life example, along with the advice to read it closely, because it may pertain to you as well.
If you bought a LCD Flat Screen TV, monitor and/or laptop in the time period from 1999 to 2006, you may have overpaid due to an illegal conspiracy to raise prices for the LCD flat panel screens used in televisions, monitors, and laptop computers.
Should you be one of those consumers or businesses, then you can file a claim and could get $25, $100, $200, or even more from the $1.1 billion settlement fund. Just answer a few simple questions about the number of LCD flat screen TVs, monitors and laptops you bought, but do this before December 6, 2012.
Receipts or other documentation are not needed and it even includes purchases of the above devices you made online, as long as the purchase meets the criteria. What those are, for more information and to find out if you are eligible, visit www.LCDclass.com.
You don't have to appear in court, but you will be represented by lawyers who will use their artistic abilities defending you!
