Fake flash on ebay: yuanaya – an old “friend” with a new ID??

leave a comment »

Seller yuanaya is a new ID on ebay – at time of writing this ID has a feedback score of 20. This seller is not using the standard small picture/s previously used in listings but the main page pictures remain the same old faithfuls we have come to expect from an identified fraud ring. Nobody with an ounce of sense should think of buying from this seller – the picture below shows why! This is a well known fake capacity drive. We do not know for sure whether the fraudsters simply reproduced a 2GB kingston casing without realising that Kingston drives of this type are colour coded according to capacity or simply re-programmed real Kingston to show higher (fake) capacities. Either way anyone who buys one of these will eventually lose all their files.
