    I got a letter in the mail today, along with a check from a class action lawsuit against EBay:

    Now, I'm wondering what I'm going to do with this whopping check for....



    $3.14



    Easy Street, here I come.......

    Did anyone else think of "Pi" when seeing the value of his check?

    What are we missing? You filed a lawsuit against eBay and you won it and received $3.14. What about the legal fees you incurred?

    Not until you mentioned it. As an aside, I grew up in northern Missouri, and the way I remembered Pi in math class was, 314 was the area code for northern Missouri

    Seriously. I did some checking, and it seems it is legit. It equates to a 6.6% refund on Final Value Fees on a motorcycle part I sold back in '08.

    I'm not complaining. I gave EBay enough money, its kinda nice to get some back from those thieves. Even if it is only $3.14.

    No, I just got included in a Class-Action suit someone else filed.

    All in all, EBay had to pony up $30 million.

    WOW - that must have hurt ebay! They are not exactly getting a lot of great press lately....and the admin costs of that - lawyers...even just paying someone to post out hundreds of thousands of cheques for $1-$2. In saying that ebay are still probably smiling...as they know most people wont bother to lodge a cheque for a $1 or $2 - it will just sit in their 'to do' pile until it expires....ah well - no cheque for me anyway!! :eek:
