    Is it possible to edit my positive feedback, which I gave him earlier, to the negative one?

    Unfortunately you can not change feedback once give. However, you can do a “followup” to your original feedback. It is like a modify only the green stays green instead of going red. You reply that you have tested and now you know you have a fake! State the real size and you can also put in something like see

    This lets people know where to find help and information.

    You can also as a victim, contact buyers of the seller to warn them to test. Every little bit helps in fighing against fake flash sellers!
