Ebay Alert! UK eBay seller gangsta-memory lives up to his ID.

leave a comment »

It seems that the UK based ebay seller gangsta-memory (an ebay member since 6th December 2008) is living up to his choice of ID. It amazes fightflashfraud that so many fraudsters choose ID’s like this which seem to reveal their intentions. This seller was warned about the fake flash issue about a week ago but apparently chose not to respond to the ebayer who sent a message. We at fightflashfraud are left with the inevitable conclusion that gangsta-memory is a deliberate fraudster as the choice of ID suggests. We advise you not to buy from this seller. If you have already bought from this seller test the item with h2testw (free program) – we think it will fail the test. If so, please report the item to sosfakeflash by using the report a fake tab and open a paypal dispute with the seller.
