    After buying one of these cards I lodged a paypal dispute.

    After no response from the seller, paypal sided with me and have refunded my money.

  2. Randy Perkins said

    I also purchased one of these 32GB SDHC cards from yaya0331. When I received the card I did the test with H2testw v1.4 and it tested bad. I registered a dispute with PayPal but I have not heard anything back on this. PayPal reports that they are waiting a response from the seller.

  3. Randy Perkins said

    PayPal has responded now. They have advised that yaya0331 has responded to them and I am required to return the SDHC card to the seller at an address in Guangdong, China. PayPal is also requiring tracking and delivery confirmation. This will cost me $13 to return this via USPS. My concern is that after some extended period of time, PayPal will respond that yaya0333 reported that they never received the item and cannot refund my payment. Then I will be out a total of $44.
    Does anyone have any suggestions about this? Thanks

    To Randy Perkins

    Could you post the full address here that paypal ordered you to return the fake memory card to? This is important for people who search the address on the internet looking for clues. Also we can check the database for a match to any existing addresses. This seller did a quick hit and run dump. He may be connected to an existing counterfeit ring we have on file.

    You drew a short straw.

    If you read through the https://sosfakeflash.wordpress.com/2009/02/22/paypal-how-long-do-you-have-to-claim-for-a-refund-in-disputes-a-guide-about-paypal-from-ebayers-experiences/ guide and even some of the stories under https://sosfakeflash.wordpress.com/category/fake-flash/ebaybuyers/stories/ you will find so many conflicting actions on the part of paypal.

    Part of the problem is that they use robotic email responders. Not human, really. At most a person who plunks in a few values into a template.

    1) Do you still have the mailing envelope? If so please see:

    James got his refund because yaya0331 did not respond, but there are over 1,800 victims out there and this fake flash seller is feeding the heat now.

    The best approach at this point it to call paypal if you can. You need access to a human, not a computer program. Generally those get their money back are those who just will not let the matter rest. The longest and most famous case on record is superman’s fight.

    Hopefully you will not be in the boxing ring so long. You only have one fake flash seller, he had many. He got every penny back. He chose to share his story to prove you can win, even after three levels of rejection at PayPal.

    To Everyone

    yaya0331 is a very disturbing case. eBay may have suspended him quickly but in doing so has prevented victims from leaving feedback and also being publically identified as purchasing.

    The story is even getting darker, an eBay member, missec123 bought from yaya0331 and sold 3 so far to other ebay members. Paying on average about £12.50 he sold them at £31.50 and higher.

    Victims of yaya0331 need to find this article, report their fake to SOSFakeFlash. File a claim with PayPal and do not let this seller get away with a fraud of more than £22000!

    See the photo above on this article. If you see any memory card that looks like it for sale on eBay at 32GB report it here and also to eBay. yaya0331’s fake sticks out like a sore thumb and is easy to spot.

    For Randy Perkins

    Yes call Paypal and talk to and agent and be prepared to demand to talk to a supervisor if you do not get what you consider to be a reasonable response.

    You may also want to consider talking to your credit card company.

    Not sure how much UPPS charges for insurance…if the parcel is not received or lost you may get some of your money back.

  6. Randy Perkins said

    Ok, first, Thanks for the responses. They are very helpful.
    Here is the address that PayPal told me to send the item to in the exact format:
    Room 402, Building 11, Baolixiaoqu, No. 2052, Baoan NanRoad, Luohu
    Shenzhen
    Guangdong
    518000
    China

    It looks like yaya0331 may be back again with the seller ID of jiejie5544. Check out this item number: 220466455385.

  8. w5kcm said

    Can someone tell me how to report this to ebay? Without actually purchasing one and testing it it is hard to report them as a fake. I looked on ebay and could not find a way to report a “suspected” fake memory seller. Here is the same SDHC card being sold by this jiejie5544, item number: 220466891590 .
    They are stating that: “Item location: Holyoke,MA, United States”. I remember that yaya0331 did the same thing, giving a US location.

    You can’t report a seller to eBay on suspicion alone. The best thing to do is see who bought from the seller and left positive feedback for the item. Send a message and ask if they tested it for the advertised capacity properly. You might have to contact several buyers. Most people do not test full capacity. They need to.

    You might get the unlikely happy report that the cards are good, if so we would like to know about it. You might get what we “suspect” – false capacity. If that is the case the buyer needs to report the seller to ebay, file a dispute with paypal and report in to us with the required evidence (see the report a fake tab at this site). Then we can issue a consumer alert and more buyers will begin reporting the seller to ebay and paypal. That is how fake flash sellers are caught and suspended.

    The SOSFakeFlash site has a difficult job. We can not issue alerts on suspicion alone – we need facts. An alert on a fake flash seller is deadly – it remains as a record on the internet forever. Innocent until proven guilty. The rules unfortunately work in favour of fake flash seller, eBay and PayPal.

    This is why it is so important for victims to report in.. The sooner the better. Alerts warn other victims. It also brings the fake flash seller into the cross hairs of both eBay and PayPal, numbering their frauding days. Victims can help by going through the sellers feedback and contacting others who bought the same fake to warn them. That is how these nasty fraudsters are stopped.

    We need HELP! There are a lot of them suddenly popping up. There is a concern with the school season about to start, that a lot of young people will be buying usb flash drives at prices they think they can afford from their pocket money. That means they are more than likely to buy a fake and lose their course work in the comming school year…

    “yaya0331 is a very disturbing case. eBay may have suspended him quickly but in doing so has prevented victims from leaving feedback and also being publically identified as purchasing.”

    And do you know why they suspended him quickly? I was reporting him to ebay for OVER 3 days, EVERY-DAY, several times a day. It took AT LEAST 5 contacts to ebay before they finally took action on the 4th day. Had I not contacted them so many times they would have been more lethargic in taking action. Basically they showed lack of due dilligance in stopping this seller when reported from day 1. I could only watch as this seller ripped off hundreds and sellers each day and did nothing until several contacts and 4 days later.

    scwam,

    Helplessness! yaya0331 was busy scamming and with 5 messages a day to warn people it was impossible to warn people.

    We see this day in day out. InspectorTech and his group are so angry with eBay you could fry your eggs on what they think.

    The problem in reporting to eBay, scwam is they use you. So you got them to pull the plug. Good. Is it good? Buyers loss access to the listing information for the f*cking scammer. So who wins? yaya0331 does, ebay does!!!!!!!!!!!!

    BTW, yaya0331 belongs to the ebay counterfeit ring:

    Read https://sosfakeflash.wordpress.com/2009/08/30/jiejie5544-–-urgent-did-you-buy-a-32gb-memory-card-from-this-ebay-seller/

    The rip off is bigger then most people think!

    Before you buy a memory card on eBay, do your homework people. 32GB and 16GB on eBay are mostly FAKE!. Want to know about prices? Just visit http://www.newegg.com/Store/SubCategory.aspx?SubCategory=68&name=Flash-Memory to have an idea.

    If you don’t research and if you buy a memory card on eBay, you will end up with a fake. I don’t give a flying f*ck about sosfakeflash being so squeeky clean. Do your research, hunt eBay. If you see a scammer, do what you have to. ebay won’t stop it, so you have to.

    I try warning people, with messages a day. LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I have tried to help for 4 months. I made 3 ebay id last week and i am going to start kicking Ass!

  13. KittyFireFlash said

    Tiger,

    I regret to inform you that you are out of SOSFakeFlash. You can still comment here. You belong in InspectorTech’s group. Expect a transfer shortly.

    We appreciate all your hard work and thank you for it. While it is true that eBay participates in this fraud, SOSFakeFlash has no choice but to follow the rules set down for our group.

    To Everyone

    If you intend to engage in fake flash commando activities, while it might help you need to understand that you are on your own. It is risky. Be sure you know what you are doing. We can not help you if you get into trouble.

    We are considering new stategies to deal with the problem. Is anyone interested in an “auction my fake” week for eBay? Let us know.

    Perhaps it might be a good idea to have a week where victims create listings with a full story on who they bought their fake from on eBay, and offer to sell it as a fake. Or perhaps to offer a story instead of the fake flash memory item as a pdf file, a digital download.

    Let us know what you think of the idea. You can write to sosfakeflashdrive@gmail.com with your opinions. The problem is inside of eBay so we need warning listings. Only you have to have something to sell. In the past, this was very effective in reducing the sale of fake flash memory items. It is better and less risky then being a fake flash commando.

    Meanwhile SOSFakeFlash continues to advise:

    Do not buy any mp3 mp4 players, memory cards, usb flash drives on eBay! 95% of the listings are for fakes! Pay realistic prices, buy locally from a reputatble store. If you want a fake, buy on eBay!
