leave a comment »

A number of people seem to be looking for information about ebay seller honnli1 who seems to be only selling media players. We at fightflashfraud do not currently have any information about this seller but it seems (as people are searching for information) that the seller’s items are suspect. We suggest that anyone who bought from this seller download h2testw here and tests their player with it. If  it proves to be a fake save the test results.

Leave a comment on this post to alert others, then report the item to sosfakeflash using the report a fake tab. Report the item to ebay (using the report this item link at the bottom of the item page) then open a paypal dispute (following the refund advice you will find on sosfakeflash) to get your money back. Be sure to leave negative feedback (or if you already left a positive follow it up saying item was fake) – good luck all.
