If you received a legal notice from Facebook recently, don't delete it -- that could mean the company owes you money.

The notice is informing users of a class action lawsuit settlement related to Facebook's 'Sponsored Stories,' according to PC World.

Facebook unlawfully used some members' information to sell or advertise products and services without obtaining consent. Members' names, profile pictures, photographs, likenesses, and identities were used without permission.

If you received the notice, Facebook could owe you up to $10.

The amount will vary depending on how many claims are filed. With over 100 million users eligible and a settlement of $20 million, it's hard to say exactly how much each claimant will receive.
