How Are People Fighting Against Fake Memory MP Players, USB Flash Drives And Memory Cards? eBay And The Internet.
The four most important?
1) File your claim and refuse any eBay nonsense about a 45 day window, it is designed to make you give up.
2) Expose the fraud. Warn people you know using social media. Facebook remains the simplest and the most effective way to warn your friends about the issue and to stop them from your experience!
3) Warn other buyers for your seller or search out obvious fraudulent DT310 listings and report them to eBay or other internet sites as good examples of how eBay participates in the scam.
4) Discuss your experience at your work place. You would be amazed to learn how many of your colleagues do not know about the problem on eBay for flash memory.

You might be tempted in frustration or anger to close your eBay account. Please do not. There are honest sellers on eBay. There are a lot of good items you can buy. The issue is in the flash memory categories. That is where the scam and fraud is. Do not punish other sellers who don’t sell these products, do not punish yourself from finding great items – in other categories. Just stay away from usb flash drives, mp players and memory cards. If you close your account, who really wins? eBay and the fake flash memory seller, not you. So avoid the obvious temptation, the easy way to deal with your outrage. Channel your anger effectively, as have we. Be positive, constructive. Aim your energy. Use it wisely to expose the danger of buying flash memory on eBay.
