We suspect that zhangshouchao88 is a very carefully built ID from one of our fraud gangs. This ID was registered in China on April 14th and had a 100% feedback score of 312 when we spotted this item. It seemed too cheap to be genuine so we had a look at this seller’s other offerings. We see a lot of familiar fake capacity drives listed. We also see that all feedback seemed to relate to jewellery items.

We strongly suspect that the Don of fake flash may be behind this ID – you can learn a bit about this fraudster and his team on the sosfakeflash blog. They are very cunning and have sold fake flash memory items on ebay for a long time.

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.
