Benefiber Class Action Settlement, Claim $60 No Receipts
If you purchased products as set forth in this Benefiber class action lawsuit, then you may be eligible for a refund. Because, allegedly the company sold its original product as 100% natural when its not. Furthermore, it marketed the Healthy Shape version as being a weight-loss product, and sold it at a higher price, even though it’s exactly the same product as Benefiber original.
What’s this settlement about?
The lawsuit alleges that GSK deceptively marketed, advertised, labeled, and sold (1) its Benefiber Original and Benefiber Healthy Shape Products as “100% Natural” or “natural;” and (2) its Benefiber Healthy Shape Products as “clinically proven to cure cravings” and as a weight management product at a price premium, even though it is the same product as Benefiber Original.
GSK denies the claims and allegations made in the Litigation. GSK is settling to avoid the expense, inconvenience, risk, and disruption of litigation. It is not an admission of any wrongdoing.

What is a class action lawsuit settlement?
For example, a class action lawsuit is one with multiple plaintiffs. In other words, there are more than one person being represented by the lawsuit. In other words, 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.
But, 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.
