Flash drives from ebay seller digibabyboy look suspect

leave a comment »

Who could afford to send an 8GB flash drive anywhere in the world for £7 ?? digibabyboy, apparently! Guess what – we smell a rat – to the fightflashfraud team listings like the one below whiff of fraud! If you were foolish enough to buy from this seller we think that you will lose all your files after a while. Buyers beware!digibabyboy See the information on other posts about flash chip prices – you will see that it is highly unlikely that this seller could offer genuine 8GB drives at this price. What do we think about digibabyboy? We think digibabyboy is a fraudster selling fake merchandise that causes people to lose their files.

Call To Victims Of Fake Flash Seller takeme2home – Did You Send Items back To This Address?

leave a comment »

takeme2home is an eBayer seller id that has a long history of trafficking in fake and counterfeit USB Flash Drives, Memory Cards and MP Players. Detected in June 2008 takeme2home was forced into fake flash retirement.

Don of Fake Flash known under the former flag ship id 3totrade was chased from eBay by members. eBayers and SOSFakeFalsh continued round up his other id’s. One by one. He took the takeme2home id out of retirement and pressed into full fake flash selling duties.

SOSFakeFlash was patiently waiting for this id to return and on April 10th, 2009 published this alert:

takeme2home Ebay Fake Flash Seller High Alert – Hong Kong – Another eBay Seller Id Of The Don Of Fake Flash In The Orient

Ebay victims began arriving. Address information received added and linked this suspected id to the Don’s arsenal.

Now victims are going through the usual mindless PayPal emailing robots to return the fake flash items. Some caved in, breaking the postal laws in their countries and sent the items back. Did they get a refund? If you examine feedback, it seems that victims did not. In the past the Don Of Fake Flash flash has pulled similar tricks – a bad return address. He did this with the pengsoloshow ebay seller id. It is very likely he is doing it now with the takeme2home id.

Has PayPal ordered YOU to return the items to this address?

Hong Kong

Are you a person who sent an item to this address and then had the seller id claim it was never received? Please contact us at

The original shipping address from Kong Kong was:

Lei Sio Hong

Room 1921, HengFung House,
Heng On Estate,
Shatia, Hongkong

The oringal adddress in China was:

Zhong Lisha(TH)

32B, XiaoFeng Building ,
YouYi Road, Luohu District,
Shenzhen, 518002
Guangdong Province

As we have said many times, please do not send fake and counterfeit flash nand technology items back to the counterfeiters. Make sure to get PayPal on record with email evidence demanding this. The fact it they know better, but their email robots don’t.

Please see the recent comments on PayPal, there is more information and contact numbers you can call.

and the general link given to sort out PayPal call numbers. PayPal People are reported to have more good sense these days then their robots.

If you are a victim of takeme2home and you sent the item to the furniture store address and did not get a refund – CALL PAYPAL! Forget about any time window claims, insist on your refund. If you paid by credit card, call the credit card company to initiate a reversal. Make a complaint to eBay as well.

Fake Flash eBay Seller leadingstore Bites The Dust – One More eBay Selling Id Of The Don Of Fake Flash In the Orient Neutralized

leave a comment »

leadingstore an eBay Seller id controlled by the Don of Fake Flash in the Orient has deregistered. No more selling of fake mp players, fake usb flash drives, fake memory cards!

Recently we published: leadingstore Ebay Fake Flash Seller Alert – China – Don Of Fake Flash In The Orient Clings To His Last Remaining eBay Id

At the time SOSFakeFlash thought it was his only remaining id on eBay. There are more still to catch and shut down. Currently takeme2home the focus. This id is dancing nicely away from eBay, PayPal and eBay Victims.

No one will miss leadingstore. However we have a strong suspicion as to why this old id was been retired. The news is dark.

All we can say right now is that current addressing information is needed on all ebay fake flash sellers. We are looking for addresses on envelopes, addresses given to you when a seller wants you to return the item, addresses given by Paypal to return items to and any addresses you find in eBay directories for sellers. If you chose to leave seller addresses on articles you can at the SOSFakeFlash website, provided it is on an Alert for the seller in question – otherwise we ask you sent the information to (see the report a fake tab at the SOSFakeFlash website).

The Don Of Fake Flash has done enough damage to eBayers, in fact it what started this Project!
