An ebay member in Belgium re-sells fakes from known fraudsters

leave a comment »


Seller djsmokey74, registered in Belgium bought fake flash drives from a number of well known fraudsters, many of whom are currently suspended from ebay. It looks as though this ebayer has already sold on 9 fakes bought from known fraudsters.

Not a single buyer left a negative about their fake capacity flash drive. However someone noticed as ebay removed six of the listings, thus burying the evidence of this seller’s activities!The seller bought fakes from known fraudsters appolly, zhangfengping8888, disubs, barrylamshop and jinyu_zheng.

The one shown in this listing appears to have been purchased from appolly. Looks as though djsmokey74 made a tidy little profit (unless the buyers realised later and claimed refunds) as he sold at around double the price paid for several of the drives. If you bought a flash drive from this seller you will begin to lose files if you use it. Test it immediately with h2testw – you will find your drive holds nowhere near 16GB!

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