Ebay seller uk-trader-2000 falls victim to Internet fraud

leave a comment »

UK based ebay seller uk-trader-2000 seems to have been an innocent victim of internet fraud. This seller bought what were advertised as Sony flash drives on the Internet. He bought them from Chinese wholesalers who, it seems, knowingly commit fraud on sites such as and re-sold these drives on eBay thinking that looking at the properties of a drive was enough to check that they were genuine. We have heard from some buyers and see from the seller’s feedback that he has refunded others we didn’t hear from. He is not alone – many ebay sellers have fallen victim to fraudulent wholesalers. We strongly advise everyone to check with Sony, Kingston etc before buying anything with a brand name or trademark belonging to these companies.
This seller is now very out of pocket as a result of his mistake – fightflashfraud hopes he can eventually get his money back – but he may have a long, hard fight ahead! We urge him not to give up. Why should fraudsters be allowed to walk off with our money?
