Fake MP players sold on ebay by hititems – known ebay fraudster!

leave a comment »

Seller hitech2day is a known and proven fake flash flash memory fraudster who has been selling fake MP players and memory cards on ebay for at least a year and is part of a well known ebay fraud gang that has operated under many different ebay IDs.

This devious fraudster changed ID from hitech2day to hititems. Fraudsters frequently do this in order to avoid people noticing that they are the self same ebay fraudsters that have been previously reported about on this and other blogs about flash memory fraud. This devious seller is also using private listings in an attempt to hide this fraud as well as attempting to blackmail victims into revising feedback.

Anyone who buys an mp3 / mp4 player from hititems will find that the built in memory will corrupt their video or music after a while becase the player is programmed to report a false capacity – the real storage capacity is a lot less than that reported.

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.

Every flash drive in this packaging that was tested by members of the fightflashfraud team proved to be a fake, as did every one of the leather and metal model we tested and every single flash drive that had one of the little shiny capacity stickers you can see in the picture. Three good reasons why we are certain that this USB flash drive listed on ebay USA by abookforu is fake capacity and corrupts files.

32GB USB flash drives from ebay seller enforcer360 likely to be fake

leave a comment »

This model of USB flash drive has consistantly proved to be fake capacity and as a result corrupts files. We think the same will be true of the ones listed by ebay seller enforcer360. It seems very likely that this seller (like many other sellers on ebay) bought from one of the fraudulent wholesalers in China.
