Is it legit or a scam? It is from "Yingling V. Ebay Inc. Settlement Fund". It says it has something to do with final value fees from 05-09. Unfortunately I won't be rich as the check is only for $3.76.

Cash it or no?

I received a notice that a check is ready to be sent to me. It is for $1,234,789.03.

But first, I need to wire them $5,000 to have the check released.

I'll try not to spend it all in one place.



Funny thing is, I don't recall either buying or selling on ebay motors in the time frame covered by that suit.

Yeah, because God forbid that your bank take $3.76 out of your account later! Your mortgage check might bounce! Far better to make a trip and burn gas to go somewhere else, because there's no way they'll be worried about the validity of the check!

I get a crazy fee when I deposit a check that is no good. I wouldn't even bother with a check for such a tiny amount.

Did anybody actually know about the class action and enroll? If it's an auto enroll, I'm likely due a couple bucks myself.

I knew nothing about it and hadn't used ebay for a while. If you used the motors section then you should get one.

These class action lawsuits are a joke. I once got a free rental as a result of a class action against Blockbuster. THe actual "victims" literally get a buck or two. IT is the lawyers who get millions based on thier "fees." Just another lawyer money making scam.

The idea isn't to get money to the plaintiffs. The idea is to lump many too-small-to-sue plaintiffs together so that the settlement is substantial enough that the company may think twice before swindling large groups of people for small amounts again.

Bingo! And let's not forget that the lawyers likely spent a good chunk of time and money pursuing it.

Woohoo! $6.73.

Glad to know I helped make another lawyer rich. All class action and bankruptcy settlements do is make lawyers money. I'd have rather seen payments under $X go to a charity.

Don't forget to cash your check by December 22, 2011.

Remember this.

The only people that get paid in a class action suit are the lawyers. If you're not a lawyer, you're likely signing rights away for a check that won't even buy a value meal at McD's.
