I never received the payment for this lawsuit, the Claim Administrator said he has sent me mail information, which I did not receive. I had a forwarding address from my previous P.O. Box. Instead they paid people who are not part of the lawsuit. I sent many correspondence to the lawyers involved and claim administrator to no avails. They said I missed the deadline which is a pure light. They just wanted to have the money for themselves.
