    I drove “besthappyseller” from Miami to change his feedback to private by contacting 5 of his fake drive buyers each day and giving them the H2test site. Getting five people to report him each day caused him to go private which means he can no longer sell on e-Bay

    Why not post the registered names of these Sellers and their Addresses? They need a real credit card to register their accounts, so sooner or later we’ll know all their names

    We do post the names of sellers caught selling fake flash. We also post the addresses when we receive them from victims.

    For Quick info on fake flash sellers, see top left column menu:

    A) eBay Fakes Report – all models investigated by fake flash seller with photo of model, description and count investigated.

    B) eBay Fakes – Sellers – all fake flash sellers in a table with total count of fakes. Click on seller name to activate the negative and neutrals tool for a seller. This is a quick way to get info on what other eBayers have to say and what they have reported. You don’t have to wade through a sea of FB to see.

    Both are updated as soon as we have significant change in data, generally from 2 to 3 weeks apart.

    The mug shot report is a very popular favorite.It has only been available to the public as of September 2008. Before that it was a private report circulated to victims on outreach rescue missions only.

    The Fake Flash seller total count table with hyperlinks to activate negative and neutrals was designed to make it easy to see the current total for an eBay Fake Flash seller and to access the negatives and neutrals quickly. Who can remember exactly how to spell their id’s correctly all the time? So with a click you get the list, count and can compare what others have to say. Note: Sometimes you won’t see much Negative for a counterfeit drive we are reporting – this is because the person(s) reporting to us found out after the fact or are holding their FB back in hopes of a refund (not a wise decision).

    I see it. But I was meant was

    John Smith
    123 Abbey Road
    Hong Kong

    Bad example cos there’re probablly tons of John Smiths, but maybe not in Hong Kong

    Don’t just complain to PAYPAL get your credit card issuing bank involved, they trump PAYPAL.

    So if Barclays issued your card bitch to them, this way PAYPAL has to pay for chargeback fees, if you wanna understand how PAYPAL works understand that they work by percentage, if a seller costs them more then they earn from the seller then they banned the seller’s account. Actually PAYPAL aint even that dumb, they is a business, they’ll ban a seller before he or she starts losing Paypal money.

    So BITCH TO YOUR CREDIT CARD COMPANY once the investigation takes places PAYPAL is charged, and yes they’ll initially just pass on the fees to that particular seller, but threshold baby, if one dude proves to be a liability then he’s gone.

    And be an educated Consumer, think before you buy do your bloody research, Nothing comes for Free, if its too bloody good a deal there’s a good chance there’s something wrong.
