Has your item vanished from your won list? If so it is because bay has suspended these sellers.

All these IDs belong to what we have christened the singjapan gang – a devious fraud ring operating out of Singapore. This gang has more than 80 different ebay IDs. When a seller is suspended ebay tends to remove the seller’s items, including ones that were already sold. This buries the evidence of fraud – at least on ebay! The gang just activates a new ID to take over from the suspended one!!

If you bought from any of these sellers test your item with h2testw and save the results. You will find that the transaction information will still be in your paypal account. Report in with as much information as you can to sosfakeflash – be sure to supply your ID, Seller ID, Item number, test results and as much other information as you can.

Open a paypal dispute and claim your money back from the fraudster!! Don’t let them get away with it!! You will see lots of advice about refunds and paypal on the sosfakeflash blog.

  1. ¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡¡ PELIGRO !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    http://www.battery-locator.eu/

    Me remiten una batería de ordenador que no corresponde con la solicitada, con lo que ni siquiera entra físicamente en mi ordenador.
    Cuando les envío un email con la reclamación y fotos de las distintas baterias, me contestan que sus ingenieros están estudiando el caso ¿que caso? ¿hay que ser ingeniero para ver que tienen distintas medidas o para fabricar una batería que nunca han tenido ?
    En definitiva un timo, que en mi caso son 60 €

  2. Hi Rudolf,

    The address 30 Kaki Bukit Rd is used by a fraud gang selling fake flash memory and dodgy batteries on ebay. You presumably bought this either directly from one of them, or from someone who is involved with a drop-shipping arrangement. As you did not give an ebay ID for the seller we don’t know who you bought from.

  3. Bonjour
    le 12/03/2010
    J’ai essayé de contacter plusieurs fois le vendeur qui fait le “mort”. La batterie livrée est venue SINGAPORE: Return address:
    30 Kaki Bukit Rd 3 #06-03/04 Empire Techno Ctr
    Singapore 418713

    N’est-il pas possible que quelqu’un de Londre fait expédier des vielles batteries d’ordinateur à “recycler” envoyés en Inde ?
    L’URL de leur site est:

    Je n’ai pas reçu de réponse de votre société, concernant la batterie défectueuse, que vous m’avez vendue! Apparemment, pour vendre vous êtes plus rapide que pour corriger vos erreurs! Je demande qu’on me donne la marche à suivre pour vous renvoyer votre matériel défectueux, et comment je peux obtenir une batterie PA3307U-1BRS qu’on peut charger et qui tienne la charge!

    Subject: Nouvelle batterie impossible à charger!

    Bonjour,
    Order Number: 32998
    J’ai bien reçu la batterie, mais en la mettant en place dans l’ordinateur, le voyant de charge reste allumé 15 secondes puis il s’éteint! Ceci montre qu’il est impossible de charger votre “nouvelle batterie”! Je suis déçu de votre entreprise…..

    Il est incroyable que vous envoyer une batterie d’Inde en France sans la tester! Je demande qu’on me propose une solution juste pour régler cette désagréable aventure dans les plus brefs délais! Si je ne reçois pas de rapide réponse de votre part, je saisirai les autorités administratives Françaises, Européennes et Indiennes!

    Je compte sur votre correction pour me donner la marche à suivre, (pour retourner votre batterie “non chargeable” à vos frais, et recevoir une batterie PA3307U-1BRS qui fonctionne et qui tient la charge).

    Merci pour la réparation de votre erreur et salutations

  4. Ah – we noticed sg.best.deals was de-registered but were not quick enough to put up a post about the seller before this happened!

  6. Sadly no, not for this seller, I just did (as usual) a search for 64GB flash unsold. In this case, due to the pages and pages of results I just manually copied the numbers instead of pasting the whole lot into my stripping script for the generation of a CSV list.
    One of them was big.sales25 this is the only name I recall.

  7. Micro,

    Item no 190360614562 has been removed by ebay by the look of things. Can you remember the seller’s ID?? Two item numbers are for sellers that have already been posted about. We can’t check if we have something already without the seller ID if items have been removed!
