leave a comment »

We first reported on ebay seller leoiek (based in China) on the 9th of September. Although this seller’s flash drives were obvious fakes very few ebayers left negative comments about this seller. Either they did not yet discover that this seller’s fake flash drives corrupt files or they fell for bribes from the seller.

As a result seller leoiek can return to selling fake flash after a few months after a holiday from selling fake flash on ebay with a healthy looking feedback score. This will fool even more buyers on ebay into buying fakes from this seller. Here are screenshots of the items that buyers did leave negative feedback about – all obvious fakes!

To see the original post about a fake Sony flash drive listed by this seller just enter leoiek in the search box on the right. Same goes for other sellers – just enter the name of the seller to see any posts about them here. If you don’t find anything it does not mean they are safe to buy from!! It just means that there isn’t a post about the seller here -there may be one elsewhere on the blogs or the seller may just have escaped our notice so far.

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.

Get other victims to do the same!! We cannot defeat flash fraud on ebay without your help – if you didn’t like being a victim then do something to help others.
