Seller in China returns to ebay with fraudsters’ favourite flash drive

A seller in China using the ebay ID fetoen listed the fake capacity USB flash drive (the fraudsters’ favourite) shown above (and other models of fake capacity 64GB and 32GB flash drive) on October 23.

This seller stopped selling for several months, following a number of negs. Seller fetoen waited until the information about what was sold had vanished before setting up shop again. We suspect that fetoen may not be the seller’s original ID.

Devious fraudsters in the far east (whom we have christened gremlins) often drop out of ebay for a while and wait until evidence of their nefarious activities to be too old to be accessed before returning with their old feedback (which of course can’t be related to the items sold) but a new name.

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.
