Never attempt direct communication with an eBay Seller of Fake Flash drives. Many eBayers have been tricked, blackmailed and frauded even further by innocently contacting the seller. Fakestopper, one of the most senior and experienced members of SOSFakeFlash explains why the only place to communicate is at the PayPal Dispute console.

Well seasoned in dealing with eBay Fake Flash Sellers in several countries she provides advise and counsel to eBayers facing the dilemmas of what to do and how to handle situations. SOSFakeFlash’s version of Dear Abby or Ann Landers.
Recently an eBayer fighting with kaho.chan, was tricked into closing his dispute. Since then, he has not heard a peep from kaho.chan. He is not the first victim of fake flash drive purchase on eBay to fall into this trap and he will not be the last….FakeStopper replies:
SuperNova, my suggestion is for you to write an email or give a call to PayPal. Tell them this is what the seller told you to do. Show them the email he send you and tell PayPal you closed the dispute in good faith thinking the seller was going to refund you back.
I suggest to a lot of people NEVER to communicate directly with the seller with email other than the PayPal dispute. I cannot stress enough seller Kaho.Chan, Shopwithmela, 3totrade, Pengsoloshow, and Whatcools are all very very SNEAKY. They will plead very innocent for you to close your dispute or for you to return the product and later never refund your money back. I have experience with 3 of them when in fact they are the same person.
So for anyone who is in paypal dispute:
DO NOT Communicate outside the dispute
DO NOT Close the dispute until you got your full refund
DO NOT Send the item back unless your got your full refund and the postage price to send back
DO NOT Settle outside the dispute until your got your full refund
DO NOT Accept unwanted gift if you send the item back (most likely you will not get your refund if you send it back and you lose your proof)
DO NOT Leave positive feedback.
I hope this helps.
Once more we at SOSFakeFlash stress – be careful, be wary, be suspicious when dealing with a fake flash seller on eBay. They can also be very vindictive – if they are forced to refund you. In some cases they run to file a non paying bidder dispute against the eBayer who was refunded by PayPal. They even try to get their listing fees refunded at eBay stating that both seller and buyer agreed not to go through with the original transaction.
If this is begining to sound like the Twilight Zone, sometimes we think it is. For your own protection, please follow the 6 Commandments For Dealing with Ebay Fake Flash Sellers in PayPal dispute.
