You could get money back through these three lawsuits.

Have you ever paid a "resort" fee at a hotel that you would never consider a resort? Well, you may be able to get that money back!

A lawsuit alleges Wyndham hotels charged resort fees that don't cover amenities or services.

The suit claims the fees were arbitrary amounts, deducted from rates so lower prices could be advertised, then added back as a fee.

If you stayed at a Wyndham-affiliated hotel, including Days Inn, La Qunita, Hawthorn and others between June 6, 2010, and Oct. 18, 2019, and paid the fee, you could get a whopping $22 back.

But that's only if you booked through Wyndham, not from a third-party site.

The deadline to file a claim is March 2020.

The company claimed no wrongdoing in reaching a settlement.

Another settlement involves something that happened a few years ago.

It was that massive Yahoo data breach affecting 500 million people.

Yahoo was blamed for not doing enough to protect that information. Personal information -- like birth dates, passwords and more -- was exposed if you had email accounts, or played games like fantasy football.

A $117-million lawsuit settlement means if you received notice you were breached between 2012 and 2016, you could get up to $358 or more if you can prove damage.

The deadline to file a claim is July 20, 2020.

The company claims no wrongdoing.

Do you own a Rossi revolver?

Another lawsuit alleges a serious defect that causes the gun to fire if it's dropped.

If you own a Rossi .38 Special or .357 revolver made between 2005 and 2017, you could get up to $50 and have your gun repaired.

The company claimed no wrongdoing.

The deadline to file a claim is Oct. 22, 2020.
