Fraudster in China with private sales pretends items in the UK

gremlin2sDevious gremlin siyo-global-trading spent some time building up feedback with other items before launching into the sale of fake flash in private listings.

As well as the devious ploy of using private listings to hide what any negative comment about fakes (which this seller will inevitably get) siyo-global-trading tries to seem to be in the UK to inspire confidence among buyers.

Never bid on flash memory where the item location and seller location don’t match or where private sales are used as you are pretty certain to land up with a fake. In fact we’d advise against buying flash memory items on ebay full stop – it’s just too risky.

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.
