Checkers Data Breech Class Action: Claim 20 Dollars – NO Proof Needed

The restaurants have not admitted any wrongdoing, but have agreed to settle the case. That means you can claim up to four $5 vouchers without proof, or up to $5,000 in damages with proof.
This lawsuit is known as In re: Checkers Data Security Breach Litigation, Case No. 8:19-cv-01386-VMC-CPT, filed in the United States District Court for the Middle District of Florida.

What is a class action lawsuit settlement?
A class action lawsuit is one with multiple plaintiffs. In other words, there are more than one person being represented by the lawsuit. Oftentimes a plaintiff or plaintiffs file the case on behalf of many people who were affected by aren’t involved in the actual suit. For example, if you purchased an item that was later determined to be involved in a class action lawsuit, you may be entitled to compensation.
If you’re included in the class or group of people affected, then you can file a claim to receive money, coupons or replacement products. Each case is different, and each will specify who is included.
In addition, class action lawsuits may require proof that you are part of the group of affected people. In this case, proof of purchase or other specified proof is needed. However, in some cases, no proof is required. In that case, you can file a claim without proving that you are part of the class of people affected. Of course, when you file a claim you are doing so under penalty of perjury. So, do not file if you do not qualify.
Perjury is the intentional act of swearing a false oath or falsifying an affirmation to tell the truth, whether spoken or in writing, concerning matters material to an official proceeding. – Wikipedia
