Attention - fraud on Ebay

Post by FORScan » Thu Dec 06, 2018 2:26 pm

Few days ago one of our users sent us this link:

We were very excited to know what this guy sells so purchased it:

Here is the link:

Just a link to Google Drive folder that contains 2 files, FORScan setup for v2.3.15 and 2.3.16:

We have checked these files, as we thought they are cracked, repacked, infected etc - but NO, these are authentic FORScan setup files for versions 2.3.15 and 2.3.16 that can be easily downloaded from official site. Either we don't understand something, or this is the most stupid fraid we ever saw.

Just to remind, we don't sell anything on Ebay, either hardware or software.

it may be worth getting in contact with ebay and explaining what is happening and that you are the developer of the software , they will then remove his sale and possibly sanction his ebay account , the guy is probably a member on here so you may be able to find out who it is and take action yourself with the person if you already dont know who he is by the gmail account if he used the same email here .
i am the same as you just a forscan user still learning .

Disgusting that someone tried to make money out of people’s hard work. I hope he’s shut down really quick :twisted:

It’s bad tho. There’s so many people trying to sell diagnostic programs on eBay. Yet the majority are free to download and use anyway. Just sad that people will try anything to get your money

He can be sued under copy rights law, unlawfully sealing somebody else's produced, if its already been reported to ebay and if its been followed up, than ebay should take action on him..........
