Refund has been confirmed.
LITB's rep stepped in the case which incredibly accelerated the entire refund process. Now they have processed the refund and I will need to be patient during next few days for the money to come back. It's a bit shame that people like me had to use social media to 'push' the merchant so they will pay attention to the customers. When the rep told me they had stopped cooperating with the supplier weeks ago when they heard the earlier report, I actually tend to believe this was the fact. However, I am not convinced to give them a another chance, at least for an important goods like a microSD card. Although they claimed they have terminated the business with that dishonest supplier, it is more important that how was the problematic supplier chosen at first place? I am not sure if I have expressed clear enough - it was a microSD card this time, but who can guarantee it will not be something else next time?
Too much time has been wasted in the past few days.
I bought 5x Transend microSD card off LITB in Dec 2017. Took one out today and noticed the extremely slow transferring speed.
At first I thought it probably was caused by the file system I have formatted (which I was doubting as I sell electronics and have used many different brands and types). So I tried formatting to FAT/FAT32/exFAT/NTFS but nothing has changed.
Same Serial Number for the five different cards which doesn't looks quite right to me:

Found an older report about selling fake cards by LITB here
I highly suspect these are counterfeit, can someone just confirm it for me please?
