big.thumb.drives55 – Singapore ebay fraud ID in the making

leave a comment »

We are certain the ebay listing shown above from big.thumb.drives55 is not a genuine sale – we think the “buyers” of this item will all be other fraud IDs in Singapore and that no goods or money will have changed hands. What will have been exchanged is glowing feedback for both parties.

This is part of the strategy used by the fraud ring that owns this and many other ebay ID’s in Singapore. They build up false positive feedback for each other to fool ebayers into thinking they are selling genuine items when they finally list fake capacity USB flash drives that corrupt buyers files or other fake flash memory items.

The false positive feedback also acts as a buffer against the inevitable negs these fraudsters begin to get when wise buyers test their flash drives with h2testw and discover the fake flash scam – fake capacity flash memory that corrupts 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.

rapperorday – another fake flash fraudster in China selling on ebay

leave a comment »

The 128GB Kingston DataTraveler USB flash drives listed on ebay by rapperorday are counterfeit, fake capacity and will corrupt files. Seller rapperorday is another fake flash fraudster in China selling on ebay and no doubt belongs to one of the familiar fraud gangs there.

It appears that this seller may also have used the ebay ID’s guimingtang (see post about this seller) and bataizihn63234 – if you bought flash memory items from any of these sellers test immediately and get your refund claim in quickly as it seems these two are no longer registered ebay users.

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.

The 128GB Kingston DataTraveler flash drives from Hong Kong based fraudster rieda_98973 are counterfeit and fake capacity. A fake capacity USB flash drive inevitably corrupts files once the true (usually tiny) capacity is reached.

ebay fake flash fraudster nishuoqingchu lists Sony Vaio flash drive

leave a comment »

There is no such thing as a genuine Sony Vaio flash drive – they were invented by fraudsters in China.

ebayer lito_d_2010 sells counterfeit 128GB Kingston USB flash drives

with 2 comments

This 128GB Kingston flash drive sold by ebay member lito_d_2010 (registered on ebay Australia) could not possibly be genunine. This flash drive is fake capacity and corrupts files. This seller changed ID from mane_lito (see our previous post about fakes sold under the id mane_lito) so it seems that this person is probably a deliberate fraudster – why else would someone change ID?

UPDATE 07/04/2010
There are now two negs for this seller for fake 128GB Kingston flash drives and seller rating is now -1. We think ebay will remove listings from this seller soon – if you bought a flash drive from this seller test it with h2testw as soon as it arrives and get your refund claim in fast if (as we are sure it will) it fails this test.

Another cheeky Chinese fraudster pretends fake flash drives in UK

leave a comment »

This USB flash drive listed on ebay UK by ot468m (no doubt a member of a familiar fraud gang in China) is fake capacity and corrupts files. This devious little towrag give the item location as Merseyside, United Kingdom – the item is in China and this seller is just trying to lull people into a false sense of security by trying to look like a UK seller. The seller says:

If buyer suspect the item is fauty(If item is faulty by testing), and want to return item, we will take the responsibility for item replacement and refund for customers.

Let us translate this for you so that what the seller really means by this becomes clear:

If you have enough sense to test your flash drive with h2testw and discover our little scam we will ask you to send it to a false address in China. This means that we can truthfully say we did not receive it. That way you have no proof we sent you a fake (so you are completly stuffed, mate) and we can refuse you a refund or replacement! We don’t have any real 16GB flash drives to send you anyway!

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.

Bought an MP3 player from ebayer ukpluseuro? If so, test with h2testw!

leave a comment »

If you bought an MP3 player from ukpluseuro we don’t think you can trust the built-in memory – don’t save tracks you do not have elswhere before testing the memory as information we have received suggests that the flash memory may be fake capacity.

Most of our team have no experience of MP3 players (so you won’t see many posts about these here) but we do know a bit about the cost of flash memory and other technology! We don’t think that ukpluseuro could sell MP players at this price if they had genuine 2GB memory chips.

All of the fightflash team got stung with fake capacity USB flash drives on ebay (we’re mostly IT folk) – which is why this blog exists at all, and what we concentrate 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.
