Singapore fraudster hi20cards sells fake USB flash drives on ebay

leave a comment »

This 128GB USB flash drive sold on ebay by hi20cards (a member of a devious fraud gang we have been watching for some time) is fake capacity and corrupts files. As soon as one ID belonging to this Singapore based fraud ring is suspended by ebay another springs into action.

They prepare for their fraudulent activities with false positive feedback from other gang members before really selling anything. This helps them fool ebayers into buying as there is a 100% positive feedback score when they embark on their fraudulent sales.

The fake positive feedback also helps offset the inevitable negs that will come in after a while when ebayers begin to realise they have been diddled! Do not be fooled – you cannot buy genuine flash memory items at tiny prices. If you do buy a flash drive at a low price (the sale price of this was less than a third of what you could expect to pay) then you are certain to get a fake.

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.
