Text messages marketing Robots movie worth $200 each

It’s been a long time since the Twentieth Century Fox animated flick Robots hit theaters. During the time the movie was being marketed hard by the moviemaker, the company used text messages that were unsolicited to get people to see the flick.

If you got one of those unsolicited text messages from the movie house, you might be entitled to $200. That is a lot of green for a text message. A class action suit against Twentieth Century Fox has been settled and each member of the class is eligible for $200.

The text messages were sent out in September or October of 2005. The entire settlement is worth $16 million and the $200 to individuals will be sent by check. You have to submit a “timely, truthful, accurate and properly completed Claim Form” to be part of the settlement.
