Is this some kind of Scam or the Real Email from Facebook?

I'm tempted to EXCLUDE myself from the class action and file my own action. My face was one of the ones used without permission and it just wasn't right.

I agree with 2-Cent Sally: Facebook needs to be held accountable for this and other lax privacy policies that take advantage of our information and use it in ways we don't like. Will I submit a claim form? YES, absolutely and I think EVERYONE should. It's not about getting our $10... it's about sending a message to Facebook!!!!

I'm in the 'do nothing' category. I just don't think it's worth my time. BUT... I'm happy to see Facebook being slapped with a major penalty for using people's head shots without their permission. It's not only unfair to the people's whose pictures were used for advertising, it's unfair to their friends who saw the ads thinking their friends were intentionally endorsing products, when all they did was hit a Like button. Yes, if you Like something you Like it... that doesn't necessarily mean you want your face plastered all over your friends' pages as an AD for that company or service. I think was a very deceptive practice and Facebook needs to be held accountable.
