Believe it or not, this email is not a scam: it’s legitimate. If you have signed up for a paid Zoom account, I highly recommend you actually follow up on this and see if you can get some of your money back as part of this class action settlement.
You can follow the links in the email or go directly to the special website at https://www.zoommeetingsclassaction.com/ to fill out the form using the email address you’ve used for your Zoom account, or the claim number in the email.
Who knows: spending a few minutes of your time might get you up to $25 back… that doesn’t suck, eh?
