yanglinshop – an ebay fraud ID in China selling fake flash drives

leave a comment »

Beware!! Avoid ebay seller yanglinshop. This is an ebay fraud ID in China used to sell fake flash memory which corrupts files amongst other rubbish that falls apart or doesn’t work according to what we read in the seller’s feedback. This ID no doubt belongs to one of the familiar fraud rings operating on ebay out of China.

Seller yanglinshop is one of the more devious sellers of fake capacity flash memory. The listing in which this fake capacity USB flash drive which corrupts files was sold was private all this seller’s listings seem to be. This is a cunning way of hiding what anyone who leaves negative feedback is complaining about! Never buy flash memory on ebay if the listing is private – you are fairly certain to get a fake that trashes your data!

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.

leave a comment »

Seller grzegofry is registered on ebay as being in Poland but the fake capacity 128GB USB flash drive sold in this listing (ebay item number 180481601651) is shown as Portugal. Perhaps this seller is working in Portugal at the moment? No matter – a fake capacity USB flash drive corrupts files and we have absolutely no doubt that this is a fake capacity flash drive that trashes data!

Devious ebay fraudster my6ter_t5t45t is pretending this fake capacity USB flash drive that corrupts files is in Devon in the UK. It is not – it is in China, where this fraudster is located. Every single one of this model of flash drive tested by the fightflashfraud team proved to be a fake that trashes files – if you see this model advertised for sale – run a mile!

128GB Kingston DT200 USB flash drive on ebay bound to be fake

leave a comment »

This 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drive listed on ebay by 2009gearoid is certain to be counterfeit and fake capacity. A fake capacity flash drive corrupts files and we have no doubt that this will do so – probably once the buyer tries to save files to it totalling 1GB at most!

This seller seems to have listed a number of different single flash drives at auction which makes us suspect that they may have been purchased singly on ebay using a different ID. Wherever the came from it seems probabable that all will turn out to be fake capacity flash drives which corrupt files.

Who lists a 128GB Kingston DT200 flash drive on ebay for 99p??

Would you list a brand new item in unopened packaging worth over £250 in an ebay auction with a start price of 99p? No??? Well if the flash drive in ebay listing number 220573591820 from mat100b was genuine then that is exactly what this UK seller has done!! Do we think it is actually genuine? Of course we don’t – it’s a fake flash drive.

The fightflashfraud team tries to dig a little under the surface to see where people got supect flash memory items listed on ebay but so far we have not discovered where seller mat100b got this. However – if you know for sure that one flash memory item from a seller is fake then it is a dead cert that the rest are too – and guess what? We found a known fake that could not possibly be genuine among this seller’s listings.

Mind you – we knew this was a counterfeit and fake capacity USB flash drive that corrupts as soon as we clapped eyes on it! We know what response the buyer will get if he or she contacts Kingston about this with the serial number – assuming the fraudsters (no doubt in China) who made this bothered with a serial number!!

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.
