with 16 comments

The FrankenFlash Project’s SOSFakeFlash group has uncovered another counterfeit ring in Hong Kong and named it XU GANG. Currently the following eBay seller ids have been connected: ebestshop58r, lovehuangfeifei2008, jameshome621. Fake memory cards, mp players and usb flash drives have been sold, including branded Kingston DT150’s.

XU GANG Address

The FrankenFlash Project asks the Technology Crime Prevention Unit in Hong Kong to please send inspectors out to investigate. It is suspected that this is one of the major outlets for drop shipping overseas and for eBay seller ids. Sold are fake memory cards, MP Players and also now a very serious wave of fake Kingston DataTraveler 150 usb flash pen sticks in 32GB and 64GB false capacity. The fake DT150’s are causing serious harm to Kingston Technology’s reputation.

The estimated recent fake flash earning’s of XU GANG run is more than £40,000’s . If you wish to add this LEE Wai Bun’s recent Kingston DT150 32GB counterfeiting it is more than £80,000 for over £120,000 and how many victims?

This is only a small fraction of the counterfeit and fake flash nand based technology leaving Hong Kong to harm people around the world. Every day, data loss is pending in these little brown packages, spreading to over 63 different countries on file.

  1. Sorry Chumrux,

    Though we know that a lot of fraudsters sell fake batteries as well as fake flash memory items we don’t know anything about batteries! Suggest you open a dispute with the seller and ask for a refund.

  2. Hi
    I bought “HiTpoMax” Lipo 14.8v 3000mah amount 6 pack last month. Item No. 190410955044
    First order 2 packs and 4 packs after then.

    I charge 2 packs from first order and connect to my F-15 duct fan RC plane.
    First pack , I feel it’s low power output from duct fan jet. I feel distance for takeoff so far and my plane fly very slowly like drunker.
    Then, Second pack , I test again, It’s same first time. After then I test with my friend F-16 duct fan. This F-16 Duct fan was flying fast with another brand lipo pack,same volt . But It fly very slowly with HiTopMax LipoPack.
    After then I try to test with another pack , another brand for prepair.
    HiTopMax get verylow power of windforce from Ductfan .

    I check with volt meter and founded , When install to circuit , Meter show each cell have 4.18 to 4.19 volt approx. But when I push throttle stick increase 10% , volt meter show volt drop to 3.9 volt every cells.
    And increase to 50% about 3-5 second , volt meter show 3.3 to 3.5 volt only. But when set throttle to zero volt meter show 4.1 volt in each cell.

    I test with 3 packs and result is same every packs.

    I think , your Li-po battery is old or low quality.

    Now I connected T plug to 3 pack of lipo cack, 3 pack still not yet.
    How I can do.
    Can I send its return to you and pay cash back to me? (Include postage fee)
    Or change new packs to me.

    Please reply back to me too.

    Thank you.

    From Thailand

  3. Hi Maureen,
    We are only talking about flash memory items not other items – sellers of fake flash often sell other things that are genuine to keep their feedback score good.

  5. Many fake flash fraudsters sell other things (a favourite is jewellery) which is usually fine. They often do this for quite a while before selling fake flash items in order to build up a good feedback score. The positive feedback for other items raises their feedback score and disguises the negative feedback from buyers who were defrauded with fake flash.

  6. I bought an item from TSE CHIT, but at room 305, 3?F, Block A Sun Fung Centre, 88 Kwok Shui Road, Kwai Chung. It’s an illuminated reader, very cheap but good, so there ARE satisfactory TSE CHITs!

  11. Hi, Anderson, take it easy. If you want to buy some electronics expensive, do not come to him. As long as it works, I like. Do you think the real stuff is so cheap?


    November 15, 2009 at 4:56 PM

  12. That’s OK Anderson – just wanted to make it clear to people that we simply don’t have the time, energy or resources to try to deal with other types of fraud.

  13. I ask forgiveness for putting the information in your blog. Posted the information after making search on google and only find information regarding the person (xu gang) on his blog. If you want to excluding the comments, no problem.

    Thank you.

  14. Hi Anderson,
    Although vicooda may be selling counterfeit clothing as there was no sign of flash memory. Whilst we feel that fraud of any sort should not be tolerated on ebay at least fake clothing doesn’t cause bits of your body to drop off. Fake memory, however, does destroy your data which is why we put the time and energy into this. The blog is not about counterfeits generally – it is solely about fake flash memory. We simply cannot deal with other types of fraud – the amount of fake memory is overwhelming and we cannot afford to be distracted by other issues.

  15. This same seller, also has posted on its ebay, fake brand clothing abercombie. The seller meets the code name Vicooda, he put on his site (( The photos are originals, but they are all false!

  16. Hello!
    I bought a camera accessory on eBay (of course from Hong Kong). This was my first transaction.
    The item arrived in time, there wasn’t any problem.
    (It’s a very low quality product, although it was very cheep…)
    I was curious to know where is the adress that I’ve found on the envelope.

    Interesting! The seller’s adress is:

    “Tse Chit
    G/F,Block 26,428 Yuen
    Kong Tsuen, Yuen Long
    Hong Kong”

    I wonder if how much eBayer’s adress is the same one…
