MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) - Alabama Attorney General Troy King says Dell Inc. has settled a class-action lawsuit that claimed the company made misleading financing and service offers to PC buyers.
King said Dell will pay $3.85 million to Alabama and 44 other states participating in the settlement.
The lawsuit claimed Dell offered customers zero-percent financing but later applied a high interest rate without their knowledge. The lawsuit also claimed problems with Dell's warranty service and rebate programs.
King said Alabamians who believe they are owed money by Dell must file a claim no later than April 13. Claim forms will be available at www.ago.alabama.gov or you can call the Office of Consumer Affairs at 1-800-392-5658.
