If you are 18 years or older, you are probably included in the Settlement because there is likely information about you in the LexisNexis databases. Whats this Case About? The lawsuit claims that LexisNexis prepared and sold Accurint searches and reports that were consumer reports under the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA). The lawsuit claims that LexisNexis failed to follow certain FCRA requirements that apply only to consumer reports. LexisNexis disagrees that Accurint reports are consumer reports. Both sides have agreed to the Settlement to resolve the case and provide benets to consumers. Whos Included? If the databases used to prepare Accurint brand products at any time between November 14, 2006 and April19, 2013 contained information about you, you are in the Class. The databases contain names and addresses of all U.S. residents who have a credit history, as well as information from many public records such as telephone directories, voter registration records, motor vehicle registrations, and mortgage records. For more information: 1-888-538-5784 CollectionReportLawsuit.com Legal NoticeWhat does the Settlement provide? LexisNexis has agreed to design, implement, and maintain specic, substantial procedures that address the concerns raised in the lawsuit regarding the preparation and sale of Accurint searches and reports to debt collectors. No money will be paid to Class Members. Your Options If the Court approves the proposed Settlement, then you will be bound by the Courts decisions you cannot exclude yourself from the class. You will not be able to sue, or continue to sue, LexisNexis for the limited remedies being resolved by this Settlement. However, you will be able to le a lawsuit on your own to pursue any claims for actual money damages. If you do not like the proposed Settlement, you must object by August 30, 2013, as discussed further at CollectionReportLawsuit.com.
