If you purchased a flash based device such as an MP Player, Memory Card or USB Flash drive on eBay and it is counterfeit and/or fake capacity you can report it to SOSFakeFlash. The information will be entered into their database. The information you provide is used to collect evidence and to publish alerts on the internet for fake flash sellers.
To report you need the following information:
- eBay item number
- eBay Seller id
- Your eBay Buyer id
- Your output from H2testw 1.4
- eBay item description if the listing has been removed (optional)
- Seller address (complete) if you have it. (optional) Important to build profile and track multiple id’s
- A short word of you experience and or thoughts if you like (optional)
Send this information directly to email@example.com
Evidence can not go into the database without the information required in items 1-4.
Information provided by victims builds the fake flash seller list on eBay. It is also used to build a catalogue of all the items found and sold by sellers, it even includes the pictures of the item sold and the counts on file.
The database is concrete documentation – hard evidence of the fraud that remains in place long after listings are removed from eBay, as they inevitably are. You can make a difference and fight back against the problem by reporting in.
If your seller has not been written about on this blog please leave a comment with the seller ID, item description and item number on this post.
