    Thumbs Down Bought a FAKE memory stick off ebay... can i do anything?

    first off, the listing said ''8GB SONY PRO DUO MEMORY STICK FOR PSP W850i''

    all fine and dandy!... get the memory card.. says the normal, SONY / MAGIC GATE etc... and all was fine... all my games up untill i got one today would save to it... tried saving and it said ''not enough space for save etc...''

    so i formatted the memory card, got it back uptp 8GB and tried it again... and it still wouldnt save... so ive got a fakey ive been told... ive already left the guy feedback.... is there anything i can do?

    hes sold it as a offical sony product... and it isnt?

    cheers chris!

    it dies say its a sony MSX-M8GS so if it isnt in my mind you can complain,

    but what exactly is the prob that it cant sotre enough (only as you say ou filled it to 8gb tried to save and it wouldnt, but being a 8gb i wouldnt expect it to because its full?)

    i had 2GB of stuff on it, tried this new game i got, and it wanted to make a save file for progess... and it said there wasnt enough room... so i delted everything off my stick back to 0GB and tried again... and it said the same... ive been told a few ways to check and its defiently fake... i put in a old 64mb real stick.. and the game worked and saved fine...

    Have you contacted him?

    It may just be faulty. I bought a 2gb one that went faulty after a month and the seller changed it with no problems.

    If he wont just tell him you will take it to a Sony shop to authenticate it and if it is a fake you will tell them where it was bought from.

    How do you check its fake?

    This was where I got mine from: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...m=110166390755

    did you look at his feedback before buying it? looks like you're not the first one to get ripped off by him...

    Paypal claim should get you your money back, then you should take the card to Sony or to Trading Standards or something and open up a can of whoopass for him...

    a sly call to the tax office wouldn't go amiss to... Notifying them that he is running a business on eBay ought to piss him off a little, as I doubt he's declaring the income (judging by the fact he only accepts paypal...)
