Another UK ebayer falls victim to fraud on

leave a comment »

Many ebayers in the UK have bought fake flash drives from Chinese wholesalers on sites like – one such ebayer realised there was something wrong but (not having any computer knowledge) listed the 10 fakes he bought from a seller on 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 and – and certainly before  listing them for sale on ebay! Better still, avoid these sites altogether.
