Fighting flash fraud on Ebay

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

Another seller in China selling the fraudsters’ favourite flash drive

with one comment


This is the fraudsters’ favourite flash drive – easily programmed to any fake capacity. Seller ebidetrade001 also offers a stainless steel model. This seller started by selling a large quantity of styluses at a loss – a familiar strategy for building up feedback – before listing flash drives that we are certain are fake capacity. The fact that buyer IDs are hidden is very suspect.

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.
