Fighting flash fraud on Ebay

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

32GB Sandisk Cruzer flash drive sold in ebay private auction

If this drive is genuine then seller jackbauerwouldnttakethis seems to have made a loss on the transaction. The use of a private auction makes us suspect that it could be a counterfeit. 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.

  1. Obviously the way forward is for legitimate sellers to offer samples for test. I would be happy to act as in intermediary for say the Consumers Association.

  2. To Jack bauer,
    Obviously no-one involved with this blog is called fightflashfraud!! The name simply reflects the purpose of the blog. This blog and others run by the frankenflash project are of great interest to anyone who bought a flash memory item that trashes their files.

  3. Presume your real name is fightingflashfraud then. Why I choose to do anything is nothing whatsoever to do with idiots like you. I am prepared to give you my name email address and email, but doubt if you would have the decency to do the same. You did not buy one, so what the hell has it got to do with you you sad sad little man. Obviously a very interesting subject to you, but apparantly noone else, as no other posts. If you are ever offered a life – take it.

  4. To Jack Baur,
    As you are using what seems to be an obviously fake identity we wonder how you can complain about the fact that you don’t know who we are! Seems you are rather annoyed at our post – there is nothing in the post that you could use as a basis for a prosecution. We simply stated that if they were genuine then you made a loss and suggested that the use of private sales looked a bit suspect.

    Why would you be so angry about that, we wonder, since you say yourself that you made a loss? We’d be interested to know why you chose to use private auctions for such a general item – this is intended for expensive things like houses and vehicles or embarrasing items like gimp masks and sexy undies!

    Time will tell whether we were right or wrong in thinking the flash drives you sold were likely to be fakes.
