    I also got a fake card from this seller… his account is no longer active though so thats a good thing!

    The astounding thing from ebay resolution centre (even though I got a refund) was this –

    Final decision:
    Neither you nor the seller were found to be at fault.
    eBay Customer Support comments:
    “You will be issued a refund.”

    You can see how seriously this fraud is being taken when a decision such as this is being taken!!

    i bought a mp3 player from them and it was broken when i got it so i returned it in january and heard nothing back so ive lost 45 dollars thanks for warning us notgood enough

    Hi Mel,

    Not good enough, meaning eBay refusing to address the situation or not good enough, our warning people?

    Hope the “not good enough” isn’t referring to SOSFakeFlash.

    Buyers not too long ago united to drive xprodeal into a suspension. They worked very hard and stopped him from selling under that id.

    Sadly you won’t hear from xprosteal. We warn people all the time to never return these items. They will just be send to someone else and unfortunately the original buyer victim usually loses a) item b)money.

    If a seller appears at this site, becareful. We issue alerts for a reason, to warn people and help them deal with their scam artist.
