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.


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.

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).

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.

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.
