"seems" is a verb inflection, not a plural.

Use "most seem ..." when "most" refers to something countable, e.g. "most (people) seem uninterested", and "most seems" when "most" refers to something uncountable, e.g. "most (of the money) seems to be missing". The same goes for agreement with other verbs.
