If your activities were interrupted by an unwanted robocall, it might be payback time.

Caribbean Cruise Line agreed to pay as much as $76 million to consumers who are part of a class-action lawsuit against the company, because it issued unwanted automated calls, which are known as robocalls, between August 2011 and August 2012. The calls offered a free cruise in exchange for taking a political survey. The lawsuit called the survey a scam, according to reports.

Consumers who qualify can collect up to $500 per unwanted call until the settlement funds are exhausted. Claimants have to provide a phone bill or other evidence that they received the calls if their phone number isn’t listed in lawsuit records, which can be found at Consumers have until Feb. 1, 2017, to submit a claim.
