New suspect ID appears on ebay selling flash drives

leave a comment »

The listing shown above looks very suspect to fightflashfraud – we think taoline2 may be a new ID set up to sell fake flash drives. At the moment this ID has no feedback. If you have bought from this seller please test your drive with h2testw and let us know if our suspicions are founded.

UPDATE 17/05/09:
Seller taoline2 removed listings for the drive above and at least one other model shortly after this post was originally published. The fairly obvious fake above has not been listed again but other drives at a similar overall price have been listed again. The price is just a little too low for it to be likely that the models shown below are genuine 16GB drives.
