How would you like to make some quick cash?
If you bought a CD, cassette tape, or record between 1995 and 2000, it might be easier than you think. In September, a class action suit was brought against music distributors and retailers. It alleged the companies conspired to set prices too high.
The companies agreed to pay $44 million in cash to consumers as part of the settlement. You don't have to show a receipt, just promise you bought music in that time period.

The amount of money you get depends on how many people apply for the refund.
And if too many people apply, no one will get a refund. Instead, the money will go to charities.
