Seems we have another Hong Kong Fraudster on ebay

with 4 comments


The flash drive show here is the fraudsters favourite! Why? It is easy to re-program to any fake capacity the fraudsters like – take your pick! Would you like a 4GB fake? Perhaps you’d prefer an 8GB or 16GB fake? If you really want to lose a lot of data our friends in Hong Kong can even reprogram these to 64GB or higher so that you can lose as many files as you like!

This seller also offers the journalist’s dream item:


If the journos in the frankenflash project didn’t think these were fake they would be rushing to buy one from elaishop at this price!!

If you bought a flash memory item from elaishop and ran into problems with it do not beleive any guff about it being faulty! This is deliberate fraud – test your drive with the free program h2testw, report in to sosfakeflash, file a claim with paypal and report the seller to ebay – link to h2testw download page (free program from German computer magazine) is provided on our article about the program

Please report in to sosfakeflash with all the information requested in this article – don’t leave it on the site – send it to the email address – then it can go into our fake flash database so that an alert can be issued on the Internet.

  1. Hi Randy,

    This comes as no surprise. If the items from elaishop were genuine I think we’d all have been queueing up!

    Anyone who bought from elaishop should test their items with h2testw immediatly and claim a refund through paypal. Don’t forget to report in with test results etc. to sosfakeflash – your evidence is important.

  3. The feedback for this seller is very telling.

    Seller has received numerous positive feedbacks for quick refunds for “not received”. Why do people do this? One of the negative comments.

    He didnt like price it sold for so he never even sent it!! Thats a shady seller!
