NV joins rebate settlement with Sprint
CARSON CITY (AP) – Nevada has received $204,000 as part of a settlement with Sprint over uncashed rebates checks for phones.
State Treasurer Kate Marshall says along with the payment, her office received the names and address of Nevadans who were sent rebate checks that were never cashed for phones purchased between 1999 and 2002.
Marshall says Sprint also has agreed to report all future unclaimed rebates annually, resulting in about $200,000 over the next three years for Nevada.
The money will be kept in the state’s unclaimed property fund, available to return to those entitled to a rebate.
Nevada was one of 36 states to join a lawsuit brought by Iowa officials over the unclaimed rebate checks.
Marshall announced the settlement Tuesday.
