Fighting flash fraud on Ebay

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

We think this seller is kidding himself about this flash drive

with 4 comments


We don’t think this can possibly be a real 128GB flash drive – only four drives of this capacity have been announced by manufacturers and this is not one of them. We think seller aam2003spd09 is kidding himself (or herself) in beleiving what the supplier advertised. 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.

  2. I was able to contact only one seller who tested their drive and found it be a fake. Buyer indicated that seller was quick to give a refund.

    Seller is still not responding to my msgs and is now selling waterproof mp3 players.

    For some reason (ebay blocking?) I cannot contact any of the buyers of flash drives from this seller.

    Could other people try?

  3. Quite possibly, Randy!!

    The only way that anyone can possibly protect themselves 100% against fraud is to buy brand name flash drives direcly from their sites. More expensive -but probably worth it in the long run!

  4. Seller has been contacted and is no longer responding to questions.

    Also very suspicious, the HDTune screen captures show a 138GB drive, not the 128GB flash drive of the listing. Is HDtune screen capture from a Hard Drive?

    This seller has increased the price of the drive, and sold at least 4 drives of the 8 drives available. Is this seller going to do a dump and run?
