Fighting flash fraud on Ebay

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

Audio books and a fake flash drive from ebay seller in Ireland

with one comment


The Harry Potter audio books in this listing from seller seyedkourosch44 may be ok – but we’d take a hammer to the flash drive rather than using it! We are certain it is counterfeit and fake capacity and would trash our files. In the unlikely event that we are wrong and it is a genuine 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 150 the serial number can be verified with Kingston.

We advise everyone 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. The seller has already sold two of these drives for under £31.00.

    It will take more than Harry Potter to turn these drives into real 64gb DT150’s!

    No seller in their right mind is going to sell £100.00 drives for as little as £31.00 and continue with further auctions of the same drive.

    The seller never replied to an ebay member when questioned on authenticity of the drives.

    Fraudsters often do not reply when it is suggested their drives may be counterfeits.
