What is the highest award you've got from a class action lawsuit? I've only had a very few "class action lawsuit" events and they all were for just a few thousand dollars. This morning I log in and find this...


07/10/12 8:09:08 AM
Alatus won a class action lawsuit on your behalf. You have been credited with $60,156,666.

That's a lot of cash for nothing, anyone had a higher amount?

On a side note, I wonder if the class action lawsuit was against Torn for all the lag we've had? lol

Meh. I've never had that event either, but by all accounts the recipient appears to be random.


It's not random.


Really? Hmmmmm, I've got 3 in the past 7-10 days, none for about 6-7 weeks prior, then b4 that I'd get them.
I need to figure out what's different about my accout now then how it was a couple of weeks ago.

Unless of coarse you'd just like to tell us bogie......


Edit:

Went looking at my account, Only thing different from a few weeks ago is a benefit block of Insured On Us (IOU) that I can tell.

Can those who have gotten these events please say if they have a benefit block of Insured On Us (IOU).
Also if you've never got the event do you own a benefit block of Insured On Us (IOU)?

60m is the highest I've seen by a fair way. I've seen others with 35m before, my highest personally is around 10m, lowest was about 20k

You have to be in a job of law.

You will need to spend 100 job points to be able to do the company special.

Our reply:

That reply from staff is not actually accurate.

You can *initiate* a class action lawsuit if you're in the law job (highest rank) and it costs at least 100 job points (you can specify how many to use). I saved up 100 points when I was there and I got 131,000 for 103 job points. It was quite pitiful I think.

However what everyone seems to be asking in this thread, is how do you become eligible to receive teh event that a class action lawsuit was won on your behalf.

The answer to that, I do not know. I have never got the class action lawsuit event; so I too am wondering how do you become eligible to be in the 'pool' of potential lawsuit winners? I've seen some people 'win' them over and over again, and people like me, have never gotten one. What's the deal?

Alatus looks like an ancient primarilly inactive account, so they could have had a shitton of job points saved which would account for the rare high payout?

I am not in the Law job (I was years ago though), I have not done any of the educations for Law, and as far as I know I don't own any stocks that would trigger an event like this.
I have gotten 15-20 events like this in the past year or so, but they all have been between 20k and 1m, mostly under 100k.

I wish I knew why I was getting them, I think it's just completely random.

60mil?! Nice.

It'd be nice to know how these people are chosen... I hope you have to be online to receive event, then i'd have more chance -than level 1 inactive accounts.

If you got 15-20 times then its not at all random as many have posted that they didn't got any event like this and neither I have.

I got 38 random lawsuits events. My highest was $18,285,110. I save the full list of lawsuits at the bottom of my profile.
I got most of them before I did any law education course, so it's not related to education.
I started working at law job for a month after the starter jobs updates, reached the top rank for the passive benefit, then I quited and moved back to a company. Maybe the law rank increases the chance to get such event?

If you read my previous post, yes. I initiated one and got only 131,000 for 103 job points. Pointless if you ask me. There are far better & easier ways to make money than sitting in a crap job waiting to accrue points.

Don't think that is the case as I have yet to still receive one of these events and I have finished the law starter job. (after the new specials were created as well)

I'm not sure how you qualify for them but a few months ago there was a huge amount of people getting them all of a sudden and had no idea where they came from. But 60Mill is the most I have seen yet. The closest i have seen was 20mill


Congrats.

One thing I've noticed about you Ken. If there's a "random" money making event anywhere around, it tends to find and stick to you like white on rice. You most likely did something to earn it. Lol
