‘Free cruise’ spam call could now get you $900

TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA) — If you’ve received a spam call about a free cruise before, you could be owed a lot of money. All you have to do is check your phone number!

That annoying robocall could now get you up to $900 thanks to a class action lawsuit.

Anyone who received a call between July 2009 and March 2014 could be eligible.

The lawsuit claims a third-party travel agency made pre-recorded robocalls offering free cruises with Carnival, Royal Caribbean and Norwegian Cruise Line.

The lawsuit claims that these calls violated the Telephone Consumer Protection Act, which places restrictions on telemarketers.

A settlement was reached in July with funds of $7 million to $12.5 million to pay those of you who received these calls.

Each call you received can get you up to $300, and you can claim up to three calls per telephone number for a total of $900.

All claims must be submitted by November 3, and you can check your phone number by clicking here. The final hearing is scheduled for April 2, 2018.

Here are the steps to claim your money.
