If you were a California resident when you used certain websites (including MoneyMutual) to receive a payday loan from certain lenders, a class action lawsuit may affect your rights. 

why did I get this notice?

Certain records indicate that you applied for a loan by visiting certain websites affiliated with Defendants. You filled out your name, contact information in the State of California, employment and banking information, and that information was then sent to one or more potential payday lenders. The relevant lenders are CASH YES, VIP PDL SERVICES, LLC aka VIP Loan Shop, SCS PROCESSING, LLC aka Everest Cash Advance, ACTION PDL SERVICES, LLC aka Action Payday, BD PDL SERVICES, LLC aka Bottom Dollar Payday aka BD PDL Services.com LLC, INTEGRITY PDL SERVICES, LLC aka Integrity Payday Loans aka IPL Today, Fast EFNDS, LLC aka Fast Efunds, and MB Marketing, LLC. 

Judge White decided that all California residents who received a payday loan from certain lenders between February 11, 2009 and February 8, 2016 by using one of various websites (including MoneyMutual) are members of the class. 

what is the lawsuit about?

The lawsuit contends that the Defendants operated or were affiliated with certain websites used to refer potential borrowers to potential lenders. One of these websites is MoneyMutual.com. The lawsuit contends many of the lenders promoted on the websites were illegally making loans to California residents because they were not licensed to do so. 

This lawsuit is about whether Defendants violated state and federal law by assisting unlicensed lenders make loans. 

The Defendants deny they did anything wrong or that any damages should be awarded to the class. 

what does the settlement provide?

The settlement provides for a cash payment of at least $38 to each of the class member who submits a timely Claim Form. If you do not submit a Claim Form, you will receive no money and other claimants will take your share. 

A total of $675,000 will be divided among up to 17,349 class members. If everyone submits a timely Claim Form, each class member will receive about $38. However, it is likely many class members will not submit a claim, which will result in a higher payment to each claimant. For example, if 1,000 persons submit a claim, each claimant will receive $675. 

The Court will hold a Fairness Hearing on June 19, 2020 at 9:00 a.m. in Department 5 of the United States District Court, Northern District of California, 1301 Clay Street, Oakland, CA 94612. The date and time of this hearing may change without further notice to the class. 

At this hearing the Court will consider whether the settlement is fair, reasonable, and adequate. If there are objections, the Court will consider them. Judge White will listen to people who have asked to speak at the hearing. The Court may also decide how much to pay Class Counsel and Plaintiffs. After the hearing, the Court will decide whether to approve the settlement. We do not know when the Judge will issue his decision.
