An ebay gremlin with a new trick – lists fakes as used!

leave a comment »

gremlin2sSeller superday09 has found a new way of avoiding ebay members thinking about the suspiciously low start price of fake flash auctions – listing the fakes as used!!

This trick has been successfully used by a fraudster in the UK for some time – now this seller in China has had this idea too.

The use of private auctions will help cover this fraudster’s tracks and make it difficult to warn victims as there is no way of knowing what customers bought. As well as USB flash drives superday09 has listed memory cards for sale on ebay. Any flash memory from this seller will undoubtedly corrupt users’ files.

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.
