jeanrob89 isn’t selling on eBay to loose money. It means only one thing…
The images used by jeanrob89 according to SOSFakeFlash and FakeMemorySentinel are painfully deja vu. Their investigators see them over and over and over again on eBay. Fake memory sellers are not creative or imaginative in their stock photos. Their objective is to list in volume with “Buy It Now” and deregister from eBay as soon as they can, close their PayPal accounts too. They intend to keep the money. eBay and PayPal can’t keep up with their new strategy.
The scam of selling fake memory on eBay is evolving.
It is not decreasing. It is simply getting sneakier. If you see lists like these available on eBay…..
STOP! Do not bid for them. Do not buy them.
