Many thanks to Sean for alerting us to this listing by seller jiejie5544. This ebay member was observant enough to notice that the seller (though registered in China) stated that the item was listed as being located in the USA.

This (allong with a massive number of listings for these 32GB memory cards at auction with low start prices) made him (quite rightly) very suspicious about this seller. Members of the frankenflash project will find this SD memory card very familiar. It was previously sold under other fraudster IDs and we suspect that jiejie5544 is another ID for the same fraud gang.

Investigations so far reveal a very familiar pattern that we see time and time again with fraudsters who sell fake flash memory. If you bought one of these from jiejie5544 test it immediately with h2testw – you are in grave danger of data loss and corruption!

Report in to SOSFakeFlash if your testing confirms you have a false capacity device.
