Fighting flash fraud on Ebay

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

A very cunning gremlin from China listing fake flash on ebay

with one comment


gremlin2sSeller ID uk-babyandbaby was registered in China over a year ago but this gremlin does not seem to have been active on ebay until recently.

Feedback has been built up by selling cheap items – mainly USB cables. Now that the seller seems to be listing fake flash drives uk-babyandbaby has switched to private listings.

This cunning gremlin has a carefully chosen name to make it appear that this is a UK seller and also (no doubt falsely) lists items as being in the UK. You can’t ask for better indicators of fraud than this!

We advise everyone who buys flash memory items to test them with the free program h2testw irrespective of where they were purchased – otherwise you run the risk of data loss and corruption.

Report your fake if testing confirms you have purchased fake capacity flash memory on ebay.
