eBay Victim Counterfeit Transcend JetFlash V30 USB Flash Drive Detects Ebay Hong Kong Seller Ring

leave a comment »

An eBayer victim of a false capacity Transcend JetFlash V30 USB Flash Drive purchased on Ebay has found a group of eBay Seller id’s all selling fake the same Transcend JetFlash V30 in different sizes, ranging from 16GB to 32GB.

He attempted to warn eBay and reported in to S0SFakeFlash. His reward? To receive a suspension from eBay!

Once again eBay punishes it’s members instead of the sellers who sell these fake capacity usb flash drives. eBay appears to protect the sellers despite the damage done to members, the data they lose to these dangerous devices. Whether branded or not, it seems eBay’s only concern is to avoid any conflict with it’s sellers based in Hong Kong or China. It does not matter to them the damage done for brand names such as Transcend, Sony or Kingston in terms of consumer confidence. It also appears that their claim of having 2000 employee’s engaged to combat fraud is a sham. Yet, they do have time to punish members who attempt to warn them and the global community about the problem.

How is it that members are able to see what eBay refuses to? See what this victim found!
