eBay pls.buy.me.now Fake Flash Memory Seller Alert – Singapore. Buyers Continue To Be Frauded On eBay For Flash Memory. Buy Cheap Get Fakes. Fraudulent Activity Rules On Singapore eBay And eBay is NOT Stopping The Scamming Sellers. Why Do People Think eBay Is A Safe Place To Buy DT200 USB Flash Drives And SD SDHC Flash Memory SD Cards?
Posted by KittyFireFlash on July 7, 2011
pls.buy.me.now is an eBay seller of Counterfeit (Fake hacked – false capacity memory) Flash USB drives and memory cards. Registered in Singapore, pls.buy.me.now is just another id in the Singapore eBay counterfeit ring. SOSFakeFlash has only this to say to eBay members: “Stop buying 32GB SD SDHC Flash Memory SD Cards and Kingston DT200 DataTraveler usb flash drives from Singapore eBay sellers”! Avoid becoming a statistic of eBay flash memory fraud.
Are you aware there is a very stubborn and lethal counterfeit ring operating in Singapore for flash memory products?
Are you aware that several eBay member countries are tracking the Singapore eBay ids?
Are you aware that eBay does little to protect you or investigate ids based in this country?
Are you aware that the counterfeit ring has registered battalions of ids, just waiting to jump into action the moment eBay suspends one?
The FrankenFlash Project is working hard to expose the sellers based in Singapore. The issue is the number of ids they have carefully groomed to take advantage of unsuspecting buyers. Most who are frauded by Singapore sellers are extremely naive about the real costs of flash memory. That is how they get frauded. Members of the counterfeit ring exploit this.
Buyers are over joyed when they bid and win. Why? They think they got a flash memory bargain on eBay. Yippee! soon turns to a shocking discovery, they bought digitally altered flash memory, data files disappear. Kapoof! Gone. No hope in recovery of important information.
Do you think eBay will STOP the flash memory fraud?
If you answer “YES”, then you don’t understand eBay at all.
eBay is not there to protect you, eBay exists to make money, to protect it’s profits. They know about the fakes being sold. If you pressure them they will remove the seller, but they will not warn the sellers buyers, they will not automatically refund them, they will not issue an apologie.
As far as eBay is concerned, you are the problem. By reporting a seller, you peed and pooped on their parade. You cost them time, employee hours to remove and suspend the seller. You have annoyed them with your negative feedback. It is a record. They are not allowed to remove it. It is another nail of evidence against them. And it matters. It encourages other frauded buyers to stand up and fight back.
It causes brand names to continue applying pressure and tasering eBay.
Flash memory fraud is big business. There is a lot of profit involved. Do not expect eBay to do anything to protect consumers. We know. SOSFakeFlash is in it’s third year of operation exposing the fraud.
The most important thing you can do as a frauded buyer is to report into SOSFakeFlash. We need the addresses for the fraudulent sellers. It helps us identify the counterfeit rings involved. It also puts a lot of sellers in the crosshairs of law enforcement.
The Singapore counterfeit ring is a big one and it continues to do a lot of harm.
