I'm going to put you on the path to making a little money, and this is not a scam.
Three class action lawsuit settlements mean hundreds of millions of dollars are up for grabs, and you likely qualify for the first one.
The lawsuit alleges auto parts manufacturers colluded to keep prices high. The settlement means that if you bought a new car between 1998 and 2015, or bought a replacement part from someone other than the manufacturer, you could get part of this $225 million settlement.
There's a hearing on May 11, as details are still being worked out.
The companies involved claim no wrongdoing.
