gremlin2s This gremlin registered on ebay China on July 1st and spent several weeks building up feedback with loss-making items before listing any fake flash drives. Large numbers of nintendo styluses sold for 1p with free postage screams fraud to us!

It looks as though the first fake flash drives sold on 25th August so we expect these will begin dropping on buyers’ doormats around now.

The listings look very familiar to members of the frankenflash project (all models sold previously by suspended fraudsters now in fake flash jail) and we think this is an ID created by a known fraud gang in China.

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.
