crispy_garlic aka onion.ginger Ebay Fake Flash Seller Id Change Under eBay Suspension

Posted by KittyFireFlash on May 7, 2009

crispy_garlic based in Hong Kong was an eBay seller of counterfeit usb flash drives. During the fall months of 2008, crispy_garlic known at the time as onion.ginger offered 10 different usb flash drives. He was reported to SOSFakeFlash and an alert went out on October 15th, 2008. See Alert – onion.ginger – Ebay Fake Flash Seller

Mid October 2008 was a time when eBay started to squirm under pressure from eBay victims of fake usb flash drives and from the FrankenFlash Project sites. crispy_garlic aka onion.ginger continued to sell for a little while but then he was suspended. Now known as crispy_garlic he set about rebuilding his id by selling earphones to rebuild his score.

February 2009 was the month the MP Player counterfeit ring operating in Hong Kong was reported at SOSFakeFlash, followed by the Transcend USB Flash drive scandal in March 2009. Victims had been contacting eBay non stop and several uncovered the sneaky mutual id feedback trick to build scores. You will see this pattern also in crispy_garlic feedback score rebuild and all the deregisters for these ids.

For some reason, not known to SOSFakeFlash crispy_garlic aka onion.ginger has his parole from eBay Fake Flash prison revoked. He currently remains under suspension. The issue is, for how long? This seller did a lot of harm to people with fake flash usb drives, be on guard in case this seller returns to active fake flash selling.

As far as victims and SOSFakeFlash are concerned, there is no eBay Fake Flash Seller Protection Program. Correct behavior is to contact all buyers, to refund in full and to apologize for the harm that has been caused.
