    Apologies if this has been mentioned before but there are some dodgy sellers of 4gb cards priced at £14.99 and £14.99 postage currently on ebay. Pretty much undercuts all sellers of these fake cards.

    It appears that someone has set up multiple accounts and has been selling 1p desktop wallpapers between his accounts giving the appearance of respectable trading. Its all bollocks, I think it's a ripoff myself:

    The user names are:

    upforoo
    sighdu
    blinktops

    These accounts are obviously the same person with over 500 good feedbacks - all priced as 1p wallpaper and all are suddenly offering real memory cards - Very risky.

    Buyer beware!

    The going rate with the other sellers are in the £35-40 region with far more credible feedback.

    They are still very hard to find in the UK and if you can they are £80 plus in shops - thats twice the price of the US. Hence loads of people buy them on ebay.

    thanks for the headsup. I highly reccomend that everyone should not purchase any type of memory card from ebay. Unless it is a reputable seller, I wouldn't even consider it. Plus pro duo cards aren;t even that expensive. I've seen 2gb cards going for 30 and 4gb's goin for 70.

    I have never thought about buy a card on Ebay, nor do I recommend it.

    Chances are it's fake anyways.

    I bought a fake one from ebay from this guy

    http://feedback.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAP...wizelectronics

    He offered me a refund minus the $10 to ship it (from Brooklyn to manahttan should not be $10 in the first place) I just kept the card for my sony dig cam since if I returned it the guy would probably just rip me off even more

    sucks ass

    Ya I got my 2gb memory card for $20 on Black Friday (day after Thanksgiving or something like that) at EB games. Best killing I made in the past 3 months =]

    I used to have a 2gb before that but you guys remember the whole fiasco with PSP getting stolen and stuff

    Thank god to 1God king!!
    1 God 1 King is truly a king =D He saved me from leaving the scene, but kindly donating his PSP to me. Anybody who talks to him on these forums, is not worthy of his kindness =P THANK YOU 1 GOD 1 KING!!!!

    why not try the online stores from hong kong?
    they can ship to uk and the price of it will cheaper then £80.
    i found one store it is ~£65. they said it is real memory card and not the fake one.

    thats where the fake cards come from
    saying it real and actually proving that its real are two different things
