Posted by KittyFireFlash on January 11, 2012
mope4370 is an eBay seller of Counterfeit (Fake hacked – false capacity memory) Flash USB drives and memory cards. Registered in the United States, mope4370 sold them in early 2010. Too many eBay buyers trust eBay sellers in the United States to bid and buy usb flash drives and memory cards, it is a big mistake.
Did you know that sellers registered on eBay USA are the second biggest source for the sale of fake flash memory? The United States currently holds 2nd place for flash memory fraud, just behind eBay China in SOSFakeFlash databases. The United Kingdom holds 5th place for eBay flash memory fraud.
Do frauded flash memory buyers get refunds from USA eBay sellers? Yes, they do, if they are committed and persistent. If they are willing to accept claims from sellers about the flash memory items being “defective” they will not. The truth is, H2testw testing, will let you know if the flash memory capacity is genuine or not. Manipulated flash memory chips overwrite the same area, again and again, that is the trick behind upgraded flash memory. Just try and access the files above real capacity, they won’t be there.

You will find some sellers blaming suppliers. They will try to get a sympathy vote, explaining you must return the item(s) so they can return them to the supplier. First of all, it is illegal in most countries to use the postal system to transport counterfeit and fraudulent items. Second, almost all sellers will ignore you once you have posted the item(s). The evidence is no longer in your possession so why should they bother with you?
Sadly, it is the trust eBay buyers have for USA sellers that has led United States eBay reaching second place in flash memory fraud. If the current trend continues, eBay in the United States could soon claim first place for flash memory fraud replacing China.
It seems buyers are just not willing to accept fake fake flash memory is sold by sellers in the United States. Buyers frauded by Asian eBay sellers show no mercy. Why the problem continues to grow on eBay in the United State are buyer naivety and denial.
Not all buyers the United States are fooled. They do not show favoritism to an American seller caught selling fakes. They understand the issue.

Important tips for eBay buyers in the United States trying to wrestle a refund from fraudulent sellers in the USA. Advise the USA eBay seller that you will:
1. Contact the USA postal service and report mail fraud.

Anyone who chooses to bid and buy flash memory on eBay should always capture the listing they won, as soon as they have won it. You can save it to disk, it might come in handy if the item turns out to be a fake. eBay will remove the listing information as soon as the seller is discovered and you will no longer be able to access the information. So preserve it! Keep the mailing envelope(s) you receive, do not throw them away until H2testw testing determines you bought genuine capacity. The seller addressing information matters.
If you preserve the information then a seller can be caught long after the fact. It is how mope4370 joined other eBay USA sellers in the database for flash memory fraud.
