  1. Hurray !!! Thanks for the post.

    pc_exports will refund me only if I remove the negative comment I have posted on him/her. Else paypla wants me to return the key using traceable (read expensive) UPS. No one will pay premium prices for sending back something that “cheap” (10 to 15 euros) and so they remove the negative feedback. So that’s how crooks get away with it on Ebay.

  2. I would like to add that if you open up the key you will find inside a hynix H27UBG8U5MTR memory chip. This is a 4GB chip, not a 16gb one.

  3. They’ve finally closed down the account of PC_EXPORTS for selling fakes. Good. But I never ever got any help from Ebay each and every time I would report the transaction as a fraud / sale of counterfeit item. Especially since Ebay France (where I currently live) has been hammered by local justice on the “selling counterfeit and fakes” bit. We all know it’s for the protection of French interests, but if they have a tough law bout it I was hoping Ebay France would then be more sensitive. The only types of answers I ever got from Ebay was to go see Paypal, Paypal in turn sent me back to the seller, and what a seller he was, he was a power seller. He always told me, using harsh language, to withdraw my negative comment about him and replace it with a positive feedback instead.

    Today his page can still be seen, with the grade “Positive Feedback: 98.5%”

    Let’s face it, the system is flawed it allows any seller of crap can get a 99% positive feedback and Ebay only cares about the money pocketed. pc_exports must be going around an other alias and the game continues.

    “Want a refund ? Write me a good report and we’ll discuss it when I see it.”

    Hi EspressoFrog!

    Good to hear from you. The system is more than flawed! The fact is, these fraudlent sellers RULE EBAY! Not the other way around.

    The top seven countries being impacted at the moment are:

    United Kingdom
    United States

    We need some help with French and Spanish and Italian to get the word out to people. Those language barriers hinder. If people could write some articles or post at forums in these countries it would help to increase awareness and perhaps have these sellers shutdown more quickly with negative feedback.

    It seems negative feedback is the only “reputable” weapon there is. We can’t endorse fake flash commando tactics. Though we understand why people do it. Traveling on the straight and narrow path is so difficult and fake flash sellers know this. They are laughting all the way to the bank, with no thought for the harm they are doing to buyers…

    Profit seems to rule, and eBay is most happy to bow before these fraudsters for a few coins…

    And when members try to help other members? eBay tries to catch them and punish them some times. It really makes you wonder…

    The only way there will be progress is if people fight back. For refunds, leaving negatives, contacting other buyers to warn them and of course reporting in with evidence so we can publish alerts.
