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.
