Ebay Scam

Just a note for any ebay sellers out there.

I got a check in the mail a while ago, saying that it was from a settlement from Ebay.

The check was for only $0.57, so I wasn't surprised when it said it was for a settlement because there are so many ebay sellers out there, it kind of made sense.

Anyway, I deposited the check, only to find out that it wasn't even from Ebay.

I was assessed almost $90 in overdraft fees, etc. behind this one little check.

So I just wanted to let anybody know, to be careful. If it was a personal check, I would not have deposited it in the bank, I would have went inside, but since the check said it was from Ebay, I didn't think Ebay wouldn't have any money to not cover the check.

Weird. This happened directly to you, or to somebody that you know? Be sure to place the notice on your Facebook page if you have one.

Yes, it happened directly to me.

Thank you for the suggestion. I'm going to log into Facebook right now and tell them there too.
