Fighting flash fraud on Ebay

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

You can buy a very bad Christmas present indeed from this ebayer

gaut

We think that anyone who buys one of these flash drives from UK seller gaut as a Christmas present would be making a very big mistake indeed. Unless the person you are buying for is your deadly enemy you will regret it.

In fact, even if you bought it to take revenge on an enemy you’d regret it as file loss and corruption can be achieved for a much lower price than this. If you look around ebay you’ll find you can buy a nasty fake to corrupt your enemies data much cheaper than this!

Seller gaut may be unaware that this is the fraudsters’ favourite flash drive and that it is always fake capacity. The seller sourced these from one of the many fraudulent suppliers who will happily sell you fake capacity memory in any fantastic capacity you can think of.

It could be that gaut is involved in dropshipping – if so the seller won’t even clap eyes on these let alone have the chance to test them. Beware of drop-shipping folks – you have no control on the quality of the goods you sell.

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.
