Notice Received September 2022
The United States Department of Justice, together with the United States Postal Inspection Service and other law enforcement partners, has conducted an investigation into two separate companies that provided consumer data to fraudulent mass-mailing schemes. Such schemes typically involved letters sent by mail falsely promising prizes or other rewards upon payment of a fee. The Department of Justice has determined that you are eligible to receive a payment as compensation for money you have lost to fraudulent mass-mailing schemes.
This payment is a consequence of enforcement actions against two separate companies. In January 2021, Epsilon Data Management LLC (“Epsilon”) entered into a Deferred Prosecution Agreement (“DPA”) with the Department of Justice, and under the terms of that DPA agreed to pay a Victim Compensation Amount of $127,500,000 to compensate victims of fraudulent mass-mailing schemes that received consumer data from Epsilon. In June 2021, KBM Group LLC (“KBM”) entered into a DPA with the Department of Justice, and under the terms of that DPA agreed to pay a Victim Compensation Amount of $33,500,000 to compensate victims of fraudulent mass-mailing schemes that received consumer data from KBM.
You do not need to do anything to receive payment. However, it very important that we have your correct address and contact information. If you have a new or different address or contact information, please contact us by calling toll-free at (833) 910-4494.
We anticipate that checks will be mailed at some point in January, 2023. Please note that you will never be asked to pay any fees or money up front to receive your compensation payment. If someone contacts you and asks you to pay money to receive your check, do not make any such payment, and please call the number below immediately to report the incident to us.
You may learn more about the Epsilon and KBM investigations on the Department of Justice’s website www.justice.gov/CDVC.
