Another ebay fraud ID prepares for a career in fake flash sales

leave a comment »

The ebay ID japan.best.flash belongs to a fraud gang in Singapore that fightflashfraud has been watching for some time. At the moment japan.best.flash seems to mostly have had fake transactions with other members of the gang – of course no money or flash drives will be exchanged in most of these fake transactions.

All that is usually exchanged in such transactions is fake positive feedback as a buffer against the inevitable negative feedback when the ID is used for real sales of fake capacity flash drives that corrupt files later on.

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.
