chicago.dragonext:private ebay auction, suspected fake flash fraudster

with 5 comments

We have a couple of questions for ebay seller chicago.dragonext:

  • Why use a private ebay auction to sell a flash drive? – unless (of course) you are trying to hide the fact that you are selling fakes!
  • Where exactly in Hong Kong is GET IT FAST! ???

What do we think about ebay seller chicago.dragonext? We suspect that this seller may well be a slightly more intelligent fraudster than usual. Of course we may get a big surprise and find that this flash drive is genuine. Somehow, we think not.

As ebay seller november.rain seems to be associated with a fraud gang in Singapore that we have been watching for some time we think it likely that this USB flash drive will prove to be fake capacity, which corrupts files.
