NO!. I just spoke with the lawfirm in San Francisco that initiated the law suit as I could not information from the so called "FAQ" I paralegal said the suit if for people that sign on to the original suit which was for individuals that filed for bankruptcy, but the credit reports continued to show, they owed money to creditors. The original amount suit was appealed by the Transunion etc. which opened the door for people that did not sign onto the original classaction suit.

After reading this advice to contact a state attorney general, I contacted the State of WI Consumer Protection Division. 

I was advised that this site appeared to them to be legitimate, and it perhaps required info such as social security number and DOB to verify that you qualify to be in the class for the settlement. 

 

They advised caution and were not able to say this is absolutely, positively, legit -- but because the settlement and lawsuit are REAL, if you wish to be included in the class, you must either contact the settlement administrator or use the form online before the deadline.

I also received this postcard, and it's a old scam that they are running again.  Here's the link on Ripoff Report:

I got the postcard in the mail today. Do not give them your date of birth and social security number whatever you do. They do not need this.I received postcards for class action lawsuits before and have never had to give out my SSN or DOB.

 

All the other postcards said I didnt have to do anything unless I wanted to opt out. This look very fishy to me.

I just received the same thing in the mail today. Although I have not responded to it yet, I find it strange that they need any additional info from me, as usually in these cases where one receives a notice of a class action settlement, it is usually stated that no further action is required UNLESS you want to opt out. The front of the card I got says "A federal court authorized this notice". Of course it could be totally bogus. I have not gone to the actual website yet, but if I do and they seem to request an inordinate amount of personal info, I will consider it bogus and report it thusly.
