Fighting flash fraud on Ebay

The authors of this blog want to elimnate flash fraud on Ebay

Seller pangoal lists an obvious fake capacity 16GB Kingston

with one comment

Seller pangoal, an eBay member since 10-Dec-08 in China, has listed a “16GB” USB flash drive using exactly the same pictures as well known and fully documented fraudsters such as wusimz. This seller is probably part of the well known fraud ring operating in Hong Kong China. Many of the ID’s used by this ring of fraudsters are presently de-registered from eBay. They register new ID’s and start again, then when things cool down they start listing under the old ID’s once much of the evidence of their fraudulent activities is no longer visible.
The pictures used by pangoal clearly show a 2GB Kingston not a 16 GB one and can be seen by entering wusimz in the search box even if this seller’s listings suddenly disappear, as they are exactly the same.
The question fightflashfraud would like an answer to is this:
How long is eBay going to allow such obvious fraud to continue?
Those who have been trying to combat the sale of fake flash devices for months need your help if you see a listing like this one from pangoal please question the seller and comment about the reply you get. Please also report the item to eBay immediately. If enough people join in we may eventually be able to make eBay a safe place to shop – eBay obviously isn’t going to do it!
