    @Troy,

    The only way to shut happyman678 down, is for people to check his FB for positive and then start contacting buyers, with eBay messages warning them to test. We need more people to be active on FlashFlashAngel duty.

    How To Warn Others On eBay As A Fake Flash Angel – Fight Back Against Fake MP Players, Memory Cards, USB Flash Drives – A Guide

    It’s the proven method to shut fraudulent sellers down. The most effective one too.

    If a buyer replies, advise them to do a follow up feedback about their discovery of having been sold a fake. This helps as well. Sellers hate it but other buyers love it – it gives them the clues they need and does not allow a seller to get away with pretenting the item is “defective”.

    Agree. People have to contact buyers for a seller. No contact = seller continues to fraud.
