A while back I had someone inquire about a Honda Accord I was auctioning on eBay Motors.  Told the guy I would take xxx for the car. Well don't you know, then came the scam! He wanted to have an associate in Africa send me a cashiers check for pmt plus shipping!  Ha.. Yea Right.. But I was bored that day and decided to play along, and sent him my mailing address!   A week passed and no check, so I forgot all about it. Then Today.. Wow 12K!!! 

This check has no watermark and a second signature is required for over 5K!

eBay Motors Is Infested With These Scammers!

Just for the hell of it I deposited it into my acct.. Of course it came bouncing back!!!
