Hello,Radarman
I am really sorry to hear the frustration caused !
But i order the very item from a manufactory ,he has promised that the item is great !
I think they must have made mistake to confound the items !
I am sorry for that ,friend ,and in fact ,we have stopped deal with them for long !
But we will file case to them for compensaction soon !
So could you please return the item back for replace again ?
We promise with a great item this time ,friend !
Sincerely apologize !
And we then send you gift with the item this time ,friend

Address for returning :
Go2besthk
D F/17,Tai Yang Dao Building ,
Dongmen Road,Luohu District,Shenzhen,
China

Notice the “Gift” enticement, this is often done by a fake flash seller, to smooth ruffled eBay feathers and buy time. People feel better with an offer of something extra. But remember an eBay seller of counterfeit flash is “No Sugar Plum Fairy”!

Hello Go,

Thank you for your reply. It will take another 3 or 4 weeks for me to receive a new item from you if I return it now and wait for you to send it back. I already sent one back to you, and I really don’t want to send another one back, since it takes a long time and costs me more money. I would like you to send me the new USB drive now. I think that is fair considering I paid for this item on July 24th, nearly 2 months ago! Will you please send it to me as soon as possible.

Thanks again,
Radarman

Dear go2besthk,

I purchased a 4GB USB drive from you, and it didn’t work. I shipped it back to you, at my expense, and had a 2nd drive shipped to me. This 2nd drive was also didn’t work. Testing the 2nd drive with H2testw1.4 showed the drive as being only a 1.9GB drive.

I want a full refund of my money – the $13.99USD that I originally paid for this item, plus the $2USD for shipping the first USB drive back to you.

If I do not have $15.99USD refunded to me by the end of this week, I will:

1. File a complaint with eBay and PayPal
2. Leave negative feedback

In addition, I will contact the Hong Kong Police Technology Crime Division at cpu-tcd@police.gov.hk. I will provide them all information, including evidence of the testing on my drive and your postal address to which I returned the original drive. Their postal address is:

Technology Crime Prevention Unit,
Technology Crime Division,
Commercial Crime Bureau, HKP,
22/F, Arsenal House,
Police Headquarters,
1 Arsenal Street, Wanchai
Hong Kong.

From now on, all emails between us will also be sent to eBay, PayPal and the Hong Kong Police.

I will not return the item. It is not defective, IT IS FRAUD.

I await your response. You have until 26th September to have my refund completed before contacting the police.

Checked item? We wonder what is meant by this? Checking to see it is able to lie to the operating system and report a capacity larger than it truely was? We do know it certainly was not “checked” using a software program such as H2testw 1.4, otherwise the seller would not have dared to send it.

I am keeping the item as evidence and will hand it over to the Hong Kong Police if you do not refund my money by the end of this week. It is your choice – give me my money back NOW or you can deal with the Hong Kong Police.

Dear Go,

I have just finished typing the letter to the Hong Kong Police. Here it is for you to see before I send it:

Hello,

I recently bought a USB drive from an eBay seller located in Hong Kong. The item purchased turned out to be fake, and this seller has committed fraud. The seller has refused to refund my money. I am currently living in the Republic of XXXXXXXXXXXXXX.

I can supply you with all of the seller’s correspondences to me, his address where the item was shipped from, the eBay auction page, the actual fake USB key that was shipped to me, and test results that prove the item is a fake.

Please let me know who to contact directly to hand over this information.

Regards,
Radarman

I want my money refunded NOW or I will send this letter to the police today. Let me know what you want to do – refund my $16.00USD or have me send this email to the police today. It is your choice.

Many fake flash sellers wave their feedback score as evidence that they are not fake flash sellers. The fact is, the flash drives do have a true capacity but it is much smaller than the advertised capacity. The real capacity is usually enought to fool most buyers with the quick tests they do. It is later, when they exceed the true capacity that data corruption occurs. It does not usually happen before they reach the limit of the real capacity. For this reason you will find that fake flash sellers can have very high positive scores. When a buyer has left a postive score they feel that they can do little. Too late. In many cases if it is not over the 45 day PayPal time limit or the eBay 60 day limit they can do something. If in the 60 days they can at least leave a follow up feedback stating that they have discovered a fake! Email 32

From: Radarman <Radarman@gmail.com> Date: Tue, Sep 23, 2008 at 10:45 AM To: go2best hk <go2besthk@gmail.com> No, I will not return the item. If I return it, and you do not refund my money, I will have no evidence to hand over to the police. You have sold me a fake item, and it is your duty to refund all of my money in full. You have already shipped me two fake items – I cannot trust that you will actually refund my money if I send the item back to you. Like I said, if the money is not refunded by the time the Hong Kong Police respond to my email, all of your emails, eBay profile, return address and fake USB key will be handed over to the police. It is up to you – refund my 16USD or deal with them. Your choice. Radarman

Radarman confirmed he received his refund from seller go2besthk. It required a tenis match of emails – back and forth. Radarman won. Not only did he win, but the seller received a clear message. We don’t think go2besthk was prepared for an eBayer like Radarman. Radarman not only remained firm but he carefully and patiencentlyy repeated the facts. The seller did not really think that Radarman would actually send an email to the Hong Kong Police. He was fair. He sent the seller the email he was going to send so the seller had time to digest it. He also unnerved the seller with a bcc email copy. That is, a blind copy of what he sent to the police. go2besthk didn’t expect that from a buyer. Probably no victim of his auctions ever did this before. You probably noticed how Radarman changed his approach in dealing with the seller. He read the article: Hong Kong Fake Flash eBay Sellers – How To Get PayPal Refunds at our site and he used the information to deal with go2besthk. He forwarded the communications to SOSFakeFlash hoping that it would be helpful to other eBayers in their cases with fake flash sellers on eBay. Thank you Radarman!
