I must say that is a good practice referring to the forum when someone received fake parts.
Thimios.

The only things I would consider buying from China or Hongkong are chassis, connectors, teflon tube sockets, maybe some wiring. Anything else, from resistors, caps, boards to transistors, even tubes, are rubbish.

umut,

I had a similar experience with this seller for a set of products and eBay cancelled the transaction and refunded the money. It was an extremely painful experience because he asked me to ship the products back and that took two months, and I had to use the shipping refund against more items outside eBay system.

Note that if you complain to eBay about counterfeit products they will refund your money and you might not have to ship the products back (I wish I had known this before, I would not have tried to resolve this with the seller). So I would suggest wait till they reach you and lodge a formal complaint with eBay, I would also suggest share the pictures with Fairchild and see if they have something to say.

Dealing with him again is a massive question mark - though there are some industrial items that we can get only from him. The other thing is that basically he will honour return and refund (even outside eBay), FWIW. BTW the IR parts he had sent me as part of an earlier transaction were original. I cracked one open and it was a nice large copper spreader with a nicely-sized die. However it was DOA, so I'd say is a mixed bag.

Almost all Far Eastern parts sellers are terrible, including the better ones in HK and Singapore. We have authorised dealers for IR and Fairchild here which are my preferred sources now. The FQA12P and 19N parts are no longer offered in TO3-P as far as I know, only in TO-220.

I know this is OT, but when are you going to allow us to buy less than 20 resistors of a single value from your store?

I had a similar experience with this seller (eBay ID: polida2008) on year 2013.
Purchased 4pcs OPA627 op-amp for $60+, seller ask me to send back the counterfeit part for replacement, but he never resend it back to me or refund me.

Beware of this SWINDLER.

He is doing this for cheating money.POLIDA2008 A Real Thi.ef on eBay! Fake MOSFETS!

FWIW, I received some fake SK389/SJ109s from a seller some months ago (yes, i should know better...). I was asked to return the items for a refund but I opened an ebay case and wrote a couple of messages back and forth to the seller stating I would not return or would only return if my shipping costs were prepaid since the parts were fake and I should not have to return anything.

Obviously the seller refused this, but after exchanging a couple of messages with the seller I escalated to ebay and they refunded my money including the shipping in less than 3 hours. It might have helped that I could show a picture of my DCA55 identifying the components as BJTs and not FETs, but at least I got my money back without any additional expense and delay. It also got me black flagged by the seller so I can't buy anything else from them, but I on balance I think I'll survive that

/U.

PS: Note that if you do this that the decision from ebay is final. If they decide in favour of the seller (which happens because sometimes their claims handlers are bloody idiots...) then you'll have no recourse and the seller will not be obligated to refund you anything.
