Fighting flash fraud on Ebay

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

USA seller with range of suspect USB flash drives on ebay

with one comment


Seller goldenpalmusb is right in describing this model of flash drive as classic – however the seller left off the other word that goes with classic; fake. This leather flash drive is the classic fake sold by hundreds of fraudsters on ebay. We have never come across one that was genuinely the capacity claimed and we don’t think these will be genuine either.

This leads us to think that the other flash drives offered by goldenpalmusb are likely to be fake capacity as well. 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. This presentation tin the drives are shown in is starting to crop up more often.

    Any drives I have seen sold in these boxes or tins have also been fake capacity drives.
