Details: The Dell service contract class action lawsuit, entitled Fiori et al. v. Dell Inc. et al., alleges Dell and the other defendants engaged in wrongful conduct by failing to disclose that there was a cost for the first-year at-home service contract and by representing that at-home service would occur on the next business day after a customer initially requested service from Dell. Dell denies any wrongdoing, but has agreed to establish establish a $30 million class action settlement fund to pay out eligible class members.
To be considered a class member of the Dell service contract class action lawsuit settlement, you must be a consumer in California or Arizona who purchased a Dell notebook or desktop computer with an at-home service contract directly from Dell between January 1, 2000 and July 31, 2010.

If you requested and received at-home repair service, you will receive $10. If you did not receive at-home service and had only the at-home service that came with the computer (i.e., you did not purchase an extended service contract), you will receive $8.
