Fighting flash fraud on Ebay

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

This 16GB Kingston flash drive seems rather on the cheap side

with 2 comments


We would normally expect to see a higher price tag than this on any 16GB Kingston flash drive which makes us wonder if counterfeiters are now producing this model. If they are this would expain why lovedave0345 is able to offer this at such a low price. We can’t see that he would be making any profit if they are genuine.

  1. Strangely enough, since this post has been put up, this seller has suddenly run out of 16gb Kingstons to sell.

    It could just be sheer coincidence. Couldn’t it?

    If you have bought a drive from this seller, please test and send in your results to the email address given at Your input is welcomed and valued by the team here at fightflashfraud. The more evidence gathered on these sellers, the better. This is your chance to help fight against the injustice we all suffer as a result of this ongoing fraud.

    When asked over three weeks ago by an ebay member if the seller would be willing to test with h2test, the seller answered as below. Seems the “limit time offer” is still on!!!

    “Thanks very much for you advice.I don’t need any test. My product comes from a supplier as big as the “Currys”. I am not worry about my supplier source at all. This is a limit time offer. It wouldn’t be always at that price. Again, thx for your advice.”

    A genuine seller, in my opinion, would be more than happy to test. His reluctance to test speaks volumes.
