It was an attempt to avoid further detection or damage to his score as eBayers reported the truth in his feedback.

Using Private Auctions is an abuse of eBay’s definition of what qualifes for a private auction listing as used by whatcools. It was to hide the evidence from eBay and eBayers. As of September 24th, 2008 Whatcools is no longer selling any fake flash drives. Whatcools is no longer listing anything for sale! How did this happen?

PayPal Shields EBay Fake Flash Seller 3ToTrade – Odyssey of FlashDad

Posted by KittyFireFlash on September 14, 2008

Paypal – deaf and dumb, this is the conclusion of eBayers claiming against fraudulent sellers of usb fake flash drives on eBay. Are there any real employees at PayPal? eBayers are assulted by email templating from mindless robotic emailers. They suspect that those clicking on the templates to select responses have an IQ no greater than 10. This is astonishing and very hard to believe. Is technology overuling common sense in a effort to save pennies?

We have reviewed too many communications sent to eBayers and have one conclusion – those operating the dispute console have no room to use their intelligence – the robotic templates control.

The language which follows is for mature audiences only. SOSFakeFlash will not censor the emotions of those frustrated by PayPal, eBay or Fake Flash Sellers. We do code the identity of those who come forward and will remove information which leads to personal identificaton.

Presented is the story of FlashDad, who followed procedure and filed a claim at PayPay, naively believing there was something called “Buyer Protection“.
