Forget Wooden Nickels, Don't Take Checks

You sell something on eBay and the buyer sends a check, so you take it to the bank it's issued by to make sure it's a good check. "She said it was a valid account and that there were funds to cover it."

So what do you do? You cash it ... and the bank has you arrested for cashing a phony check.

Clark Howard is not very pleased with the banks behavior and is asking people to remove their money from all Bank of America accounts until they pay half of the guys court costs. Howard even offered to pay half, so far, no go.
