Fighting flash fraud on Ebay

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

Sandisk flash drive sold on ebay seems a bit cheap

with 2 comments


This Sandisk flash drive was sold by biggincarp for a rather lower price than we would expect which makes us wonder if they could be counterfeits purchase from a fraudulent wholesaler. These should have individual serial numbers which can be checked with Sandisk to ensure they are genuine.

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. Hi Traveler,

    A lot of ebay members bought flash memory to sell on ebay from fraudulent wholesalers – including some of the founding members of the frankenflash project.

    Honest ebayers who find they did so will refund their buyers and apologise. Dishonest people will change their listings, swap IDs and wriggle around in any way they can think of to continue selling.

  2. I had a look over every item on offer from this seller and previously sold.

    Everything on offer, and everything sold by this seller seems to be at prices almost too good to be true.

    The idea of a fraudulent wholesaler does make sense.
