Another UK ebayer falls victim to fraud on dhgate.com

leave a comment »

Many ebayers in the UK have bought fake flash drives from Chinese wholesalers on sites like dhgate.com – one such ebayer realised there was something wrong but (not having any computer knowledge) listed the 10 fakes he bought from a seller on dhgate.com for sale on ebay as follows:

vaio_dhgate_victim This is an auction for a 10 x 512gb microvault U.S.B flash drives.
These items are being sold as faulty, I dont know whats wrong with them you can put stuff on them but cannot play it back? maybe a cheap fix for some one with knowledge??
Properties say they are 500gb each ?i have loaded one with over 8gb and it didnt say it was full? so i dont know what size they are??

We strongly advise ebayers who buy flash drives from any source with a view to re-selling on ebay to bone up on flash drives before buying so that you know what’s really available. Avoid drop-shipping unless you have previously dealt with the supplier and know they are trustworthy. Always check the drives with h2testw before approving payment to sellers on sites like allibaba.com and dhgate.com – and certainly before  listing them for sale on ebay! Better still, avoid these sites altogether.
