September 16, 2013 – Update to All Class Members:
As previously posted on the website, there was a hold on the distribution because of two appeals filed which prevented distribution of the settlement funds. Those appeals have now been resolved and we anticipate funding of the Settlement soon. We expect the settlement checks to be distributed by October 31, 2013.
Malta v. Wells Fargo Home Mortgage, Inc., Case No. 10 CV 1290 IEG BLM
Allen v. Wells Fargo Auto Finance, Inc., Case No. CV 10 2657 W (JMA)
If you received a cell phone or pager call from Wells Fargo using an Automatic Telephone Dialing System between June 16, 2006 and November 16, 2011, your rights could be affected by a Class Action Settlement.
A settlement has been proposed in a lawsuit called Malta, v. Wells Fargo Home Mortgage, Inc. et al., Case No. 10 CV 1290 BEN (NLS), and a related case, which are pending in the United States District Court for the Southern District of California (“Court”).
Your legal rights are affected whether you act or do not act. Read this notice carefully.
Your Legal Rights And Options In This Settlement:
|Do Nothing||Stay in the lawsuit. Receive no payment.|
|File a Claim||Make a claim by May 26, 2013, either online, by mail or over the phone and receive payment if you are an eligible Class Member and Settlement is finally approved.|
|Go to a Hearing||Ask to speak in Court about the fairness of the settlement.|
|Object||Write to the Court and explain why you don’t like the settlement.|
|Exclude Yourself||Get no payment. This is the only option that allows you to be part of any other lawsuit involving the claims in the Actions against Defendants.|
These rights and options – and the deadlines to exercise them – are explained in the Frequently Asked Questions (“FAQ”) comprising the Notice about the Settlement. The Court in charge of this case still has to decide whether to approve the settlement.
