Fake Flash Sellers Stopped eBay Report 20080902

Posted by KittyFireFlash on September 3, 2008

This report lists eBay Sellers identified with the selling of counterfeit drives on eBay and who have been stopped. The information comes from the FrankenFlash Project’s sub group: eBayers Against False Capacity Drives.

For the first time information kept in-house and confidental is being released to the public. Note that if a seller was a victim, the seller is identified as such. See the article: Bay Sellers Can Be Victims – How Does This Happen? for details.

Unfortuately, those stopped do start again when they think the coast is clear to begin once more – it is a never ending battle and little help has come from eBay or PayPal directly so far. The best we can do at this point is leave a bread crumb trail for them to follow. It seems to help, to a degree.  Fakessellersstopped20080902.pdf  Future reports may be released, at best on a monthly basis.
