Yes. The average estimated amount of $1,000 or $1,500 won't even cover one month's rent in many places, like where I live. It'll get pissed away paying for Christmas or paying off a credit card and then all it will be is a memory (make sure to take a picture of that check for posterity's sake before you take it to the bank). Remember, it's just a settlement because we'll never know just how much money was stolen....Cobell's lawyers estimated that it was most likely a lot more than $3.4 billion, but of course it's not provable. The number is not much more than a wild guess that basically lets the federal government off the hook because we couldn't go another 15 years in court.
