CompuTip - Have a Yahoo Account? You Might Get $100 Back N-299

If you had a Yahoo account in Israel or the US between 2012 and 2016, you may be eligible to receive a $100 payout as part of the class action settlement against Yahoo for breaches of data security.

Here is what I found out:

1.  There is indeed a class action settlement against Yahoo.  The deadline for filing a claim is July 20, 2020.

2.  The settlement is for $117.5 million  and 3 billion Yahoo users were potentially affected.  Settlement fee payouts are up to $358 per person.

3.  "According to the settlement, anyone who received a notice about the data breaches, or had a Yahoo account at any time between January 1, 2012, and December 31, 2016 and was a resident of the United States or Israel is eligible to file a claim."

4.  "If Yahoo users can verify that they already have a credit monitoring service that they will keep for at least one year, they can submit a claim for a cash payment of $100..."

5.  "...you can ask for a cash payment of $100 as long as you verify that you’ve already signed up for a credit-monitoring service. There are plenty of free credit-monitoring services online — including Credit Karma — that you can quickly sign up for if you choose this option."
