szeho663 – eBay Seller Of Fake Flash – Under Investigation By eBay
Posted on September 20, 2008
Currently szeho663 is not listing.
We have observed a change in behavior for fake flash sellers on eBay. szeho663 formerly a traditional seller, has adopted the new tactics of other fake flash sellers. Dump and Hide . This is a new approach and it makes it much more difficult for eBay to detect. These sellers generate listings for fake flash in incredible numbers over a very short period of time, then they stop listing.
The new search experience on eBay is designed to hide what a seller sold. How? It limits the search to the last 15 days for sold items. This makes it difficult for an average member to research what a seller sold – so important for counterfeit flash sellers to be found out. A flaw, merrily being exploited after careful study by these fraudsters. Never underestimate them, they are extremely clever.
Fake flash sellers are doing a lot of damage. To the buyers of fake flash devices who lose data, to the reputation of genuine manufacturers of flash chips see:
and they are driving away members from eBay and Paypal. They are also destroying China’s reputation on the international market for flash chips and finished products (usb flash drives, MP Players, memory cards).
eBay fake flash seller, szeho663 is a perfect example. For the record to support our claims that he has once more returned to listing the drives he previously sold SOSFfakeflash has on file see one of the ebay item numbers: 160295157805
And for historical evidence to support what we are claiming:
To see the reports of documented fakes, for this seller and others please go to the categories section, Reports – eBay to review what we have on file. The mug shot reports will show you the exact model listings – exactly as they were sold.
Many attempts were made to warn eBay and PayPal about szeho663. Nothing was done. The people who bought these fake flash drives…eBay and PayPal knows who they are. Why have they not been contacted and warned not to use these devices? Why have they not been automatically refunding buyers? Why do both try to continue to sweep the evidence under the rug? Fake Flash is not harmless. It is not simply about loosing money from a purchase, money can always be earned anew. This is about theft, damage that many people will never recover from, traumatized by the data loss – files that can never be replaced, ever.
Allowing the sale of Fake Flash to continue is equivelent to allowing poison to be sold. Data is poisoned – killed. While in some cases individuals, companies and government organizations (yes, they have suffered data loss too) can reconstruct what was lost, too many can’t. Even when it is possible to reconstruct – the manhours involved… And for those who can not recover what they have lost? All for money? For fees? As we have said before – if eBay and PayPal can not control the issue – the solution is simple, ban the sale of ANY flash devices on eBay. Period. These companies need to take ownership for the problem. They also have a duty to refund buyers of these fake flash devices and to warn buyers who bought from a fake flash seller found out. The issue now seems to date back to 2003 and not 2005 . Just how long does it take to address?
Is profit from the sale of fake flash devices THAT ADDICTING?
What is your view?
