shop-till-drops aka Shining_World Ebay Fake Flash Seller Alert Devious – United Kingdom

Posted by KittyFireFlash on September 30, 2009

shop-till-drops aka Shining_World is an eBay seller of Counterfeit (Fake – false capacity) Flash USB drives. Registered in the United Kingdom, shop-till-drops changed her id from Shining_World to avoid detection. shop-till-drops aka Shining_World sold during the summer of 2009: 16GB HI-SPEED USB FLASH MEMORY STICK PEN DISK DRIVE NEW

Described as:

16 GB HI-SPEED USB Flash drive is FASTEST AND NEW in mobile storage. With a capacity of 16GB, it lets you store more digital files than ever before on one drive. 16 GB HI-SPEED USB Flash drive ® helps budget-conscious users break storage barriers, allowing them to easily store and move files in a 16GB device no bigger than a pocket knife. As easy as click and drag, 16 GB HI-SPEED USB Flash drive can hold just about any file you can think of — term papers, theses, digital images, spreadsheets or other important documents.

DT400/16GB 16 GB DataTraveler 400 USB drive (2.0) was a false capacity counterfeit Kingston usb flash drive.3660

shop-till-drops aka Shining_World has managed to convince buyers who complained that the “item” was faulty. However, test results speak plainly:

H2Test1.4:
The media is likely to be defective.
1003.1 MByte OK (2054528 sectors)
15.0 GByte DATA LOST (31481472 sectors)
Details:11.2 GByte overwritten (23611104 sectors)
0 KByte slightly changed (< 8 bit/sector, 0 sectors)
3.7 GByte corrupted (7870368 sectors)
1.5 KByte aliased memory (3 sectors)
First error at offset: 0x000000003eb30000
Expected: 0x000000003eb30000
Found: 0x00000000aa55aa55
H2testw version 1.3
Writing speed: 13.6 MByte/s
Reading speed: 19.5 MByte/s
H2testw v1.4

Revealing a 1GB memory chip. At issue is not the quantity sold but: 1) not contacting buyers 2) attempting to wiggle way from having sold both false capacity usb flash drives and also a counterfeit Kingston DT400/16 with an id name change. The Genuine DT400/16 is not available everywhere, it is offered by Kingston to the UK market. Attempts at erasing evidence have failed.

Please test your device to ensure you have the advertised capacity with H2testw to ensure you have the advertised capacity. Report in to SOSFakeFlash if your testing confirms you have a false capacity device.

Posted by KittyFireFlash on September 30, 2009

SharpEdge is a victim of eBay fake flash seller, mememao9898 now known as 123456wowo123456 . You will find the communications between victim and fraudulent seller interesting. While mememao9898 stated that he would take up the issue with the supplier, mememao9898 continues to offer the items for sale. Read SharpEdge’s story to gain insight on dealing with your seller.

Hello

I thought I would let you know as I wanted it entered into the database as evidence and so that you can post an alert.
Also, I have had feedback from other user’s with similar issues and who I have advised about you’re website.

SharpEdge said:

I asked for a replacement (tested BEFORE shipping) .

My email to seller:

Dear mememao9898,

Received item – thanks.
However, copied 9Gb of data but upon retrieving -corrupted.
Verified data as good ,re-copied but again, upon retrieval – corrupted.
Seems that after 4Gb – corrupts.
Checked with a recommended usb testing tool which verified that it’s only 3.8Gb storage capacity.
I would like to return the item for replacement.
Please supply full address for return and confirmation of you’re return policy.
Could you check the replacement and verify that it is 16Gb BEFORE sending.

Regards

– SharpEdge

Seller’s response:

Dear SharpEdge,

Dear friend,
We apologize to you for the quality of our product, we are checking it with the factory which signed the contract with us, and would investigate their responsibility.

We would take all the responsibility anyway!

So, in this case, we will refund your full money within 48HR, please check your paypal account. and we have left the positive feedback for you! Would you please ship the item back to us? So we can further investigate the problems of this item.

– mememao9898

SharpEdge observed:

As you can see , no option but refund even though I asked for REPLACEMENT rather than refund.

My email to seller:

I see that the refund transaction is already progress.
I did not really want a refund but a replacement.
Anyway ….thanks .
I have been to the Post Office and the cheapest shipping/postage option available is at £6.19 (this is more than half of the cost of the device !!!).
Please let me know if you are willing to reimburse/credit and then I will send/ship the faulty/fake device.
Also, how will this be paid to me when you receive it ?
Please advise and I will send you authentication of post/shipping and tracking of the parcel.
Or better still, please send another replacement (checked and verified that it is definitely 16Gb and I will pay immediately – see my profile).

– SharpEdge

Sellers response:

Dear SharpEdge,

Dear friend,

Thanks for your reply and your checking with the post office.

The postage cost in your palce is still too high to us.

If we get it back, lessing the post cost and our human resource cost, we could not get much back.

And we have got one other device which got the same problem as yours back already.

So, in this case, please keep it.

Thanks

– mememao9898

SharpEdge Action:

OUTCOME : REFUNDED and item smashed and disposed due to faulty and fake.

SharpEdge suspicions:

Also, I think the seller is trading under another ID : lingwawa98982009 as the picture and website profile display are similar – see item descriptions : 280392433245 & 280392433028.

Regards
SharpEdge

DGM Refunded – Victim of dingdingstore11 eBay Fake Memory Seller. Warned By Fellow eBay Member.

Posted by KittyFireFlash on September 21, 2009

DGM a victim of dingdingstore11 left positive feedback for this fake flash seller. He was warned by another eBay member.

DGM wrote to SOSFakeFlash:

Hello,

I purchased a 16gb flash card in august from dingdingstore11 on ebay.
Sure enough, the card was fake – I was alerted to the fact by another
person on ebay, who mentioned your website.

I already had left positive feedback, so the seller never responded.

I went straight to my bank and filed a credit card dispute. In the
reason I wrote that “I received the wrong merchandise” and “I am unable
to contact the seller for an exchange”.

My bank asked me to provide all the data from paypal etc, which I did
and I also explained that I got sent a 1.7gb card instead of a 16gb
card, that I bought.

Two weeks later after filing the dispute etc, my bank reversed the
transaction. Paypal did not put my account into negative either.

Regards,
DGM

DGM was rescued, because someone took the time to send him a warning message. On June 23, 2009, SOSFakeFlash issued: dingdingstore11 Ebay Fake Flash Seller Alert – China

DGM tested and began his battle to get a refund, his contribution to the fight against this fraud. Everyone who persists to be refunded is helping the cause.
