Dodgy feedback on ebay about the fraudsters’ favourite!

leave a comment »


Feedback from the apparent buyer of item number 170386410205 “sold” by keepgoodme2009 on 24th September said:

love the item, fast shipping, nice seller, A+++

As the feedback was left the same day as the “purchase” was made we can only think of three reasons:

    1) Seller keepgoodme2009 (registered in China) has a “beam me up Scottie” for instant delivery to the “buyer” who is registered in Canada.
    2) The buyer is suffering from a cognitive disorder of some sort, got mixed up and left feedback for the wrong item.
    3) There is a conspiracy going on (which we have seen many times) in which false feedback is being left to give buyers a false sense of confidence and act as a buffer against negative comments.

Whatever was going on here we can say that we have never found this model of flash drive to genuinely have the capacity stated by the seller. We don’t think those sold by keepgoodme2009 will be any different.

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 in to SOSFakeFlash if your testing confirms you have purchased a false capacity device on ebay.
