Yet another fake flash gremlin on ebay


gremlin2sSeller shijianfei1987 is yet another ebay fake flash gremlin. The term gremlin has been applied by fightflashfraud to any recently registered ID that we beleive belongs to one of the fraud gangs in China.

We are certain any flash memory item (USB flash drives, memory cards, MP players etc) from shijianfei1987 will be fake.

The real capacity of this (supposedly) 64GB USB flash drive will be a lot less than that shown in properties. The same will apply to other flash memory from this seller. Fake flash memory items cause loss and corruption of anything saved to them after a while.

The ebay ID shijianfei1987 is apparently considered disposable by our fraudster friends as there does not to seem to have been the careful feedback buildup the gangs do with some IDs in the hope of keeping them long term.

This suggests the use of the ID shijianfei1987 will probably end up as a “dump and run” operation – sell as many fakes as possible in a short time before the inevitable suspension by ebay when negative feedback floods in.

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