Ebay seller actonart17 lists fake or counterfeit 64GB Kingston

leave a comment »

UPDATED ON 11/02/09
Seller actonart17, based in Greece, listed fake/counterfeit 64GB Kingston flash drives. This seller seems to have been unaware that the item is counterfeit. The seller has today removed the listing before anyone had bought.
Please note that Kingston only sell one 64GB drive at the moment and it is not black, as the drive listed appears to be. An ebay member in England drew this item to the attention of fightfakeflash but, as the member has no knowledge of the Greek language, felt she could not warn the seller adequately. However, unless someone in Greece warned the seller it seems her messge got through and the seller has acted honourably. We at fightflashfraud applaud honourable sellers who remove listings of fakes when alerted to the problem. We wish the seller well.

At the “report a fake” Tabs for FrankenFlash Project Sites they begin with a reminder to you both and to eBayers of recent lawsuits against you. It was a warning. It was also to educate people that you have been brought to task before. We said:

Any company who had been involved directly or indirectly with a transaction involving fake flash – ie counterfeit goods is liable and responsible – if they chose not to respond to the situation or take the warnings issued by customers seriously. To ignore the issue is to condone it.

You both have had opportunity to address the situation. You chose not too. So we turned up the heat. Exactly what temperature do you need before you choose to address the situation and also to come clean before the public?
