Fighting flash fraud on Ebay

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

Are the flash drives from this seller genuine or not?

with 2 comments


If the flash drives offered by China-based seller shallyou_lee are genuine then why keep buyer IDs private? We notice this seller also offers the fraudsters’ favourite (leather model) so we are pretty certain this seller will turn out to be a fraudster.

As usual 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.

UPDATE 03/08/2010
This fraudulent seller has now been suspended by ebay after eight months of selling lord knows how many fake flash memory items.

  1. Hi Brendan,
    The problem of fake flash memory items was ignored by ebay for years – despite all those of us who write on blogs about the issue pounding their doors and warning about it. In the end we all gave up on them and started blogging – suddenly over the last couple of months they have started do do something about it – but not in the most responsible way! Had they acted on our warnings way back perhaps this fraud could have been put to an end long ago.

  2. Not only does shallyou_lee list counterfeit items, he also fails to send goods when paid. I am currently fighting Paypal to have my money returned for an item I purchased from this scumbag.

    He has been removed as a seller on eBay. I guess after THOUSANDS of transactions and most likely hundreds of complaints, eBay has finally decided to do the right thing and cancel his account.
