Default I just got a check in the mail from Yingling V Ebay Settlement Fund

I have no idea how I would be involved in someone's class action suit. Has anyone else been sent a check? Is this for real?

It's a class action for those who sold parts on Ebay Motors.

More info:
Quote:
If you paid Final Value Fees for selling items in the vehicle-related Parts and Accessories categories on eBay Motors between April 21, 2005, and August 26, 2009, you should have received a formal legal notice by email or postal mail. If so, and your name mail address is correct, you will be entitled to a partial refund of those fees (net of any previous refunds) under a settlement agreement if it is approved as described below.



B.WHO IS COVERED BY THE SETTLEMENT?
On July 27, 2010, the Court allowed the individual plaintiffs Yingling and Scott to represent the following people, who are known as “Class Members”:

All persons who paid so-called Final Value Fees in conjunction with a listing of an item within eBay, Inc.’s defined category of “Parts & Accessories” on the eBay Motors website, which listing was placed between April 21, 2005, and August 26, 2009.

This ruling also allows the law firm of Figari & Davenport LLP to act as “Class Counsel” and to represent the Class Members as their attorneys. The Court’s ruling does not mean that the Court views the claims in this Lawsuit as having merit or not.

This Settlement applies to the same persons defined above; however, all listings made using eBay’s Store Inventory Format are excluded from the Settlement. This group of persons is the “Settlement Class.” eBay’s records were used to send email or postal mail notice to all members of the Settlement Class.


Quote:
Payment to Settlement Class members will be proportional to the total amount of Final Value Fees (net of any previous refunds) each Class Member paid between April 21, 2005 and August 26, 2009 for selling Parts and Accessories, excluding listings in eBay Store Inventory Format. According to eBay’s calculations, which are subject to finalization and revision, it is estimated that Settlement Class Members will be refunded approximately 6.67% of the Final Value Fees (net of any previous refunds) they paid for these listings.

That's what a class action suit is, one person suing on behalf of a "class."

Oh I'm sure that's probably close to the truth. That's how tort cases work

Not long ago I got a $4K check in the mail that was part of some kind of fraud. It was a real check though and could have been cashed. The return address and company were completely different than the company and location on the check. I think it was a stolen check, but had been made out to me and was very real. Of course there was no real temptation to cash it but it gave my wife and I a good laugh

It's a common scam usually accompanied with "Please send half back for XXXXX reason and keep the rest for your troubles". The check won't bounce till nearly a week later.

I used to work for Wal-Mart when I was a teenager. Got a letter in the mail about two years ago asking if I wanted to be part of a class action suit against them, my wife urged my to join the suit so I did and forgot about it. Six months later a check for over $500 arrives in the mail! It was 100% legit and made for a very happy Wednesday.
