appolly Ebay Fake Flash Seller Alert – China

Posted by KittyFireFlash on March 29, 2009

appolly is an eBay seller of Counterfeit (Fake) Flash USB drives and soon to be discovered MP Players. Based in China appolly is busy selling – harvesting another fake flash profit crop. If you bought appolly, test!

Is this seller id connected to other id’s? Naturally. SOSFakeFlash is publishing everything the seller sells. So far the current count is over 1100+ items sold. Need a hint? Look at the previous post and tell us what you see? In fact, have a child under the age of 8 look at the two posts – what do they see?

This is another cycle repeat of fake flash selling. If only eBay would actually have a few employee’s addressing the issue. They said in the summer of 2008 eBay had 2000+ working against fraud, going after counterfeiters and fraud. We don’t think so.

Once again SOSFakeFlash has a question for eBay.

Will eBay try to hide the truth about this seller by deregistering him so we can begin the chase again? The endless chase.

Don’t jump up and down with joy when eBay deregisters a seller!

It is not really for the protection of eBayers. It is so that eBay can get rid of the evidence. No listings for anyone to inspect. This causes additional work for the FrankenFlash project. We are forced to delay issuing alerts to the internet to warn members. Why? To preserve the evidence – first. This was not necessary in the past, but now eBay is monitoring the site and trying to sweep things quickly under the rug. “When little red riding hood came calling…” (eBay will know what this means) we understood it was not your interest being served (all eBay fake flash victims for the last 6 years). To protect you, eBay must change the rules for listing usb flash based technology and they are not willing to do this. It is cheaper to deregister sellers and hide evidence then to spend money from fees they collect from fake flash selling to fix the issue. The fancy term is “risk management”. It should not require an army of programmers to change things unless the sites are poorly designed. Let’s see what eBay is going to do…

If you want this seller stopped – roll up your sleeves and start contacting his buyers. It is called fake flash angel duty and is best performed by the victims of the seller to be shut down.

Important Reading:

Report in to SOSFakeFlash if your testing confirms you have a false capacity device.

Have a look at all the models being sold.
