Ever Have A Yahoo Account? You May Be Owed Money
If you have or ever had a Yahoo email account, you may be owed some money. Here's how you can find out if you are entitled to some cash.According to WKBW, Yahoo email account holders between 2012 and 2016 may have some money on the way because of a massive security breech. According to a major lawsuit and settlement, Yahoo will pay fifty million dollars in damages to two hundred million people in the U.S. and Israel. This makes it the largest security breech ever.
The compromised personal information was hacked by Russians in 2013 and 2014. Yahoo didn't let anyone know until 2016, so they have to pay up. You may receive up to $375 for your time if you were affected by identity theft or delayed tax refunds. Also, if you paid for service from Yahoo premium email, you will be able to get a 25% refund.
The final hearing is scheduled for November 29th. Yahoo will be notifying affected customers by email. Yeah that's pretty ironic.
