Devious powerseller pretends items are in the UK

with 2 comments


Seller bfe-clearence is one of a rash of sellers that try to look as though their items are in the UK. Why? Because a lot of buyers on ebay know that most flash memory items from orient is fake. We can’t see any other reason for a seller listing item as if it was in another country other than the fact that they are selling fake items. The 16GB model in the listing above is very familiar to the frankenflash project. It has been sold by many fraudsters.

We advise everyone who buys flash memory items to test them with the free program h2testw irrespective of where they were purchased – otherwise you run the risk of data loss and corruption.

Report your fake if testing confirms you have purchased fake capacity flash memory on ebay.

Fortunately we don’t think there will be many bidders on the model shown below:
It seems that bfe-clearence was so anxious to offer us his items that he had a slip of the finger and put the decimal point in the wrong place!
