Urgent! eBay kalietbou Fake Flash Memory Seller Alert – France. How A Buyer Learns About Fake Memory Cards On eBay, A Personal Story.

Posted by KittyFireFlash on July 12, 2011

kalietbou is an eBay seller of Counterfeit (Fake hacked – false capacity memory) memory cards. Registered in France, kalietbou tries to evade selling fake CARTE MEMOIRE MICRO SD 32 GO NEUVE cards by blaming devices and operating systems are faulty, not flash memory cards.

A frauded buyer for eBay seller kalietbou has learned a lot about fake memory cards and how sellers on eBay continue to get away with frauding buyers. Here is a personal story, is yours similar?

eBay buyer id on file, for personal privacy, Nom de plume (pen name): DécouvreurMémoireFaux.

I bought a nice cheap 32 GB SD card in June 2011 from kalietbou.

Scenario:

kalietbou (the seller) asked to send a Bank check payment (only) to Louis COSSU, 8 rue Pierre Ambrogiani in Avignon, France.

Bonsoir,
Félicitation pour votre enchère, voici mes coordonnées :
Monsieur Louis COSSU
8, rue Pierre Ambrogiani
84000 AVIGNON
Dès réception du règlement votre carte sera expédiée le jour même
Cordialement
Merci de me dire si vous avez bien reçu ce message

English Translation:

Good evening,
Congratulations on your bid, here are my details:
Mr. Louis COSSU
8, rue Pierre Ambrogiani
84000 AVIGNON
Upon receipt of payment your card will be shipped the same day
cordially
Thank you to tell me whether you have received this message

The card arrived quickly, so the victim is very happy, put the card in the device. Great, it works! I gave a nice positive evaluation in Ebay. I tested the card (as I had received from China a little bit before a counterfeit SD card).

I notice that some copied file cannot are not longer readble on the card.

I investigated and detected the card was defective. Too late the nice eval can never be removed from Ebay.

I opened a Ebay open issue to ask the seller to reimburse.

He replied quickly like a white dove giving some polite explanation telling it’s not card but device fault.

He never openly refuses to reimburse, but do not confirm he accepts.

I opened an issue to Ebay – as it’s not Paypal paid, it costs nothing to Paypal & Ebay, and Ebay do not anything that could affect its business.

Litige clos Commentaires finaux : L’objet reçu est ce qu’on appelle un “fake” : carte électronique simulant une capacité de 32 Go

alors que sa capacité est inférieure à un GO. Le vendeur a invoqué des motifs fantaisiste pour justifier qu’elle ne fonctionne pas correctement sur mes appareils. Les derniers acheteurs du meme article qui ont pris le soins de tester ce produit ont constaté la malversation et un scenario similaire et refus du vendeur lors de la demande de rembourst – Une cinquantaine de ventes sur 6 mois.

English Translation:

Comments closed end dispute: The object given is called a “fake” e-card simulating a capacity of 32 GB

while its capacity is less than one GO. The seller has invoked to justify its reasons fantasy does not work properly on my machines. Recent buyers of the same article that took care to test this product found embezzlement and a similar scenario and refusal of the seller at the request of rembourst – Fifty sales in six months.

Bonjour, la carte a été testée sur les sytème Windows 7, Vista, Linux, XP ainsi que sur un téléphone Nokia C7 de dernière génération.

J’ai fait expertiser cette carte dont je confirma qu’elle st une carte de 1 Go falsifiée électroniquement pour faire croire à une carte de 32 Go.

De plus, le blister montre très clairement qu’il sagit d’un produit douteux qui ne mentionne ni limitation technique, ni marque ni capacité ni classe.

Je vous demande donc de me rembourser.

In addition, the blister sagit shows very clearly that a product does not mention dubious technical limitation or mark or ability or class.

I ask you to reimburse me.

kalietbou 19-juin-11 à 21:09:31 Paris

Veuillez me dire quel est votre système d’exploitation, car cette carte fonctionne uniquement sur windows 7, donc windows XP et vista sont a exclurent, de plus même sous windows 7, il faut parfois installer un correctif, pour que celui-ci puisse être compatible avec les cartes de grosses capacités. Concernant les téléphones ils ne sont pas tous compatibles car les grosses capacités saturent la mémoire causant un ralentissement du système.

English Translation:

Please tell me what is your operating system, because this card only works on Windows 7, so Windows XP and Vista are exclurent has, over the same seven windows, sometimes you install a patch so that it can be compatible with large capacity cards. Regarding the phones are not compatible because all the large memory capacities saturate causing a system slowdown.

To raise a message to Ebay about the dispute, you must close the open issue.

So you close the open isuue to raise the problem in Ebay’s hands..

Ebay do nothing, the only thing that remains is your positive evaluation that will help the seller to trap easily next victim.

Using the Ebay selling history of the seller (clicking on his # of transactions),

I’ve got the nicknames of other less than 6 months buyers (of which 50 for the same model of SD card). Contacted.

Notice : Ebay allows you to send maximum 5 messages to them per day- that’s good rule to prevent investigation to go too far…

More than half of person contacted gave feedback.

All feedback described the same as scenario described above : well organized robbery.

Google and Facebook give information (just enter his first, lastname and city name) on where same named person works, his prof phone , fax, and his FB profile photo.

One day after I bought my rubish card, another buyer bought the same item from him.

He left today a nice positive evaluation to kalietbou – too late my friend!

These cards appear to be produced by Wushengda in China exported via Hong-Kong or alibabab.com per something as 8 USD per pice- bulk of 10-20-50.
