Fraudster changes ebay ID – but we are not fooled.

leave a comment »

newgoodies2009Fake flash seller gooditemonly has changed ID to newgoodies2009 but we uncovered this deception in no time at all. One 16GB MP player is already in the sosfakeflash database and we expect that the classic fake USB flash drive on the left will soon be joining it along with the various other models being sold.

As well as fake capacity media players and USB flash drives it seems from feedback that the seller’s memory cards are also fake capacity. This devious seller is now using private auctions to try and hide the fraud. Buyers – test anything you bought from this crook under either the gooditemonly ID or the new one newgoodies2009 with the program h2testw.

Report in to SOSFakeFlash if your testing confirms you have a false capacity device.

Seller rainy9413 has added some very familiar flash drives to the range of fake flash being sold. The drives shown below have been sold by many many fraudsters. If you bought one test it immediately with h2tesw.

This seller was first caught selling fake capacity MP players – recorded in the sosfakeflash database. If a seller is proven to be offering one type of fake flash you can be pretty sure all flash memory items will be fake.

Report in to SOSFakeFlash if your testing confirms you have a false capacity device.

Listings by amust2009 smell strongly of devious fraud

amust2009

Here we see what seems to be a classic fake capacity drive being sold in a private auction. Who sells flash drives and memory cards in private auctions? Devious fraudsters who are trying to hide their nefarious activities, that’s who! As is normal with such fraudsters this seller started with small value items to build good feedback before launching into fake flash sales. If you bought flash memory items from amust2009 test them immediately with h2testw.

PENNA USB 32GB SONY VAIO – ciò non esiste

leave a comment »

vaio italyQuesto azionamento istantaneo che è venduto sull’Italia ebay deve essere falso – ci è nessun qualcosa come un azionamento della penna di Sony Vaio! Vaio è un marchio di Sony usato per i computer portatili non per gli azionamenti dell’istantaneo del USB.

Chiunque che usando uno di questi finalmente troverà che le lime sono perse o corrotte poichè la capienza reale è molto di meno che 32GB. Gli azionamenti dell’istantaneo come questo sono programmati per visualizzare una capienza falsa al sistema operativo.

Ci sono due elenchi quasi identici per i questi venditore differente usando ID’ s – paolo8308 e pcalvanese – azzarderemmo un’ipotesi che i due IDs probabilmente appartengono alla stessa persona.

Segnali dentro a SOSFakeFlash se la vostra prova lo conferma ha un dispositivo falso di capienza.

Are the flash drives sold by this UK ebayer genuine?

leave a comment »

jpsupplies-uk

UK based ebay seller has sold a number of different models of 8GB flash drive. We have no idea whether these are the real deal or not but the fact that buyer IDs are not shown at the end of auctions makes us slightly suspicious. This makes us wonder if the seller has something to hide. This may not be the case, only time (and buyers testing their drives with h2testw) will reveal whether drives sold by jpsupplies-uk are genuine or not.

SOSFakeFlash Annouces Consumer Education Week To Fight Fraud on fake mp players, usb flash drives and memory cards

leave a comment »

SOSFakeFlash Announces Consumer Education Week To Fight Fraud on fake up players, usb flash drives and memory cards. The FrankenFlash Project is alarmed at the escalation the selling of these devices. Consumers are made victims each day in over 63 countries.

After 15 months of investigation it is clear that consumers are ill informed. As a result they fall prey to fraudsters and scammers who sell them false capacity devices. SOSFakeFlash intends to reveal the truth and to demonstrate that when consumers hunt for bargains and cheap prices there is only one outcome – the purchase of a false capacity item. The consequences can be lethal. It is not only money that is lost but also data.

The flash nand chips used in up players, usb flash drives and memory cards are being digitally altered to report a capacity much higher than the chips can support. This digitally altering occurs in the orient and is sent around the world through internet wholesaler sites in the orient.

People interested in large profits buy these items and as a result inflict misery on others. Too many sellers do not search their products or test them properly. There is no fabulous profit in selling true capacity up players, usb flash drives and memory cards. This is a myth and the FrankenFlash project announces zero tolerance for any seller proven to have sold false capacity devices. If any seller is caught they will be published on the internet. The record will be permanent and will under no circumstances be retracted. It is a sellers duty to research and test the items they offer for sale.

Please visit http://sosfakeflash.wordpress.com/ to see what they reveal. eBay will be exposed as will PayPal, both are complicit in aiding and promoting the sale of false capacity items. Buyers also need to be better informed on the true costs – there is little mark up involved.

SOSFakeFlash will reveal the sad truth with evidence: “You get what you paid for”! This will be unpopular with victims.
