ebay gremlin builds huge feedback before selling fake flash drives

leave a comment »

gremlin2sGremlin seller kmtrend (no doubt part of a familiar fraud ring) cunningly built up a huge feedback score by auctioning cheap screen protectors.

As the seller offered free P&P and many went for as little as 20p the seller obviously made quite a loss on the large number (almost 600) sold.

If you see feedback for a seller for a huge number of cheap items like this – smell a rat! We have no doubt that any USB flash drive or other flash memory sold by kmtrend will prove to be fake capacity and will 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.
