Posted by flashchiptutor on January 10, 2010

eBay members continue to be foolish. They bid and buy on mpx players, memory cards and usb flash drives on eBay. They do not know the cost of flash memory and fall prey to eBay sellers in the Orient. SOSFakeFlash continues to investigate and issue alerts against fraudulent eBay sellers. They continue to be overwhelmed by victims seeking assistance.

    First of all, anyone who buys ANYTHING from a seller who only has a feed back rating of FIVE is taking an enormous. Personally I think the buyer got what he or she deserved because of stupidity.

    If you are going to buy on eBay look for a seller who has been in business for several years and has over a thousand positive feed back and virtually no negative feedback. Even then you should look carefully at all negative feed back and also read how the seller responds to the negative feedback.

    You want a seller who has a large number of positive sales reported over at least a year or more and you improve your chance of a good deal substantially.

    Once you buy an item, take one or more screen shots of the listing and date them so you have a record in case eBay decides to remove the listing and disable the seller’s account.

    I have never had an experience that wasn’t resolved by the merchant, eBay or PayPal.

      Good advice. I would like to add that when looking at a seller with thousands of positive feedback you need to look into the details of the feedback.

      Was the seller selling large numbers of low priced items with free shipping? Was the sale cost less than shipping cost?

      Same wording in the comments on a large number of feedback entries.

      Be cautious – positive feedback can be purchased for little $.

      Also some major sellers of fakes flash drives (20,000+ sales) are members of what are reffered to as “bidder buyer networks” who are experts at manipulating the ebay feedback proccess.

      If you see anythibg suspicious stay away from the seller, especially with any device containing flash memory.
