Fighting flash fraud on Ebay

The authors of this blog want to elimnate flash fraud on Ebay

Yet another ID in China listing an old favourite of fraudsters


This model of flash drive is listed by almost every fraudster on ebay operating out of China. We think that chm_2009 is yet another of these. You can’t sell genuine 16GB flash drives on ebay for £10 and make a profit. In fact it’s very difficult to find any you could sell at under £20 unless you can buy and sell in absolutely massive quantities with a tiny profit margin. Buyers beware – flash drives at fabulous prices are fabulously fake capacity and will cause your files to vanish or become corrupted.

As ever we strongly advise ebayers to test all flash memory with the free program h2testw.

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