$61 million

That is the eye-popping amount of money Dish Network has to pay as part of a class action lawsuit related to unwanted telemarketing calls. But some of the people who won the money don’t know it yet. The 18,000 people who are eligible to receive somewhere between $2,400 and $30,000 as part of the verdict are hanging up the phone when informed that they can get free money because of a couple of unwanted telephone calls they barely remember.
