Looks like we have another carefully set up ID from one of our favourite flash fraud gangs in China here. None of the feedback at the time we noticed this was for flash memory. Seems that the mememao9898 ID was set up using a familiar pattern. Sellers build a defensive wall of positive feedback by selling cheap items (often at a loss) to delay the inevitable suspension when buyers start to find out that the flash memory items from the seller are fake capacity.

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 09/10/09
This fraudster has now changed ID to 123456wowo123456 – obviously hoping to slip under the radar!

  1. Hi Micro,

    There is now an alert on sosfakeflash as there is proof of this seller’s fraud – this fraudulent seller has now used at least three IDs for fake flash sales.

  2. I see this seller is now registered in Singapore, and selling the usual range of fake capacity flash stuff
    must have a serious split personality as some auctions still show Hong Kong. Devious indeed!!
