New suspect seller in the USA? sellstuffsold hides buyer ID’s

leave a comment »

An ebay member since 10-Dec-08 in the United States sellstuffsold hides buyer ID’s at the end of auctions. In a listing titled: NEW 8GB USB ZIP FLASH DRIVE with Black leather case sellstuffsold says:
FREE DOMESTIC SHIPPING!!!! YES, I personally am new to EBAY but have a very experienced EBAYER showing me everything. Please bid with confidence. Any other questions feel free to ask.
Hmm… this smells of fish to fightflashfraud! If you bought a flash drive from sellstuffsold you are strongly advised to test with h2testw – you can download this free from the Testing category. If the drive fails this test please report it to sosfakeflash and follow their advice about getting a refund.

UK seller gnmv68 – possible suspect ebay seller may be innocent?

with 2 comments

At present there is no information about this seller, who has only listed a couple of suspect flash drives. This seller may be entirely innocent – we await more information.
Fightflashfraud had comments from two ebayers on 7th February indicating that the flash drives sold by gnmv68 were, as suspected, fake. However it seems that this seller simply made the mistake of selling drives without testing them. He has apparently now said he will refund the buyers. Sellers take note! Test your drives before you list them and save yourself a lot of trouble!
