    Anyone who can prove they got a telemarketing robocall five or six years ago that offered a "free cruise" in return for taking a short survey is eligible for $500 per call, NBC News reported.

    Florida-based Caribbean Cruise Line and two co-defendants have agreed to pay between $56 and $76 million to settle a class action lawsuit over millions of allegedly unwanted and illegal robocalls made between August 2011 and August 2012 in violation of the Telephone Consumer Protection Act.

    More than a million people may be eligible for that money, but you have to file a claim to be included in the settlement at FreeCruiseCallClassAction.net. The deadline is February 1.

    "It is the largest TCPA settlement ever," said Chris Dore with Edelson PC, the Chicago law firm that brought the case.
