SOSFakeFlash is very disturbed as are all eBayers. We are all confounded. We are aware of counterfeit flash drives being sold since 2005 – or that is the evidence trail on the internet. However, an older eBayer has been quietly monitoring for a long time and tells us that it first appeared on eBay as early as 2003!

Exactly how many counterfeit flash drives have been unleashed on unsuspecting eBayers? It is clear that fake flash sellers on eBay make money. But it is impossible to ignore that eBay and PayPal are making money as well. Would this be the reason they have been so deaf and dumb to the crys of eBayers who have suffered from fake flash misery – data loss – money lost – for so many years? It is only recent lawsuits against both that are jolting them into action and member organizing to clean up fake flash on eBay…

We have questions:

1. Why are buyers of fake flash merchandise not contacted by eBay when a seller is suspended for selling fake flash?
2. Why are buyers not automatically refunded?
3. Why do buyers have to incure so many telephone calls to either or both?
4. Who is running to the bank? Fake Flash sellers? eBay? Paypal? or All Three?
