    I got it but am skeptical as I have 2 gmail accounts and got nothing on the second one. I think it's fake a scam.

    I think it might be real but I'm not clicking on any links nor will I "opt in" or "opt out" of anything.

    I got the email on my phone. I clicked the link went to a 3rd rate "put-together-in-five-minutes" page. It's fake. I'm 95% sure on that.

    I got it and it seems real to me. It's a typical class action legal settlement where a company acted inappropriately, but it's hard to prove individual damages to each affected person.

    It's real. I read through the options. Nobody is getting any money out of the deal, so the best thing to do is nothing. If you want to sue Google yourself, then you must opt out of the class action.

    I think it's all BS....how did anyone expect privacy on buzz? Now google has to burn millions on how to educate the dumb on internet privacy. Just get al those people rotary phones and a book of stamps!

    It's real, but this is in the wrong forum, this has nothing to do with the Droid.
