I've read rumors that drug dealers and other nefarious folks (criminal enterprises) sometimes use eBay/auction houses to launder money, but that always seemed dumb to pay 12-15% in fees unless they were doing it for $100's of thousands at a minimum and that alone would send up red flags to authorities. Plausible, but not probable IMO, but it's a thought.
