Fighting flash fraud on Ebay

The authors of this blog want to elimnate flash fraud on Ebay

32GB Kingston micro SD cards from jacky_bowen not found on Kingston web site.

with 3 comments

As there seem to be no micro SD memory cards above 16GB listed on the Kingston web site we suspect that the SD cards being auctioned on ebay by jacky_bowen will turn out to be fake capacity counterfeits. If these micro SD cards are fake capacity counterfeits then buyers will find themselves with lost and corrupted files. Our thanks to tax for pointing out this seller.

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.

  1. This is probably the worst example of consistently bad feedback I have seen in 2 years of investigations, add that to the blatant lies from the seller and the protestations of innocence, and now the fact that the seller is now non-registered with eBay, makes one interesting case indeed.

  2. I am NOT a fraudulant seller i have had no complaints from any of my buyers, just this mad one who reckons you cant get 32GB Kingston Memory cards! and just so you know the 50 memory cards i tested with the ABOVE software were the full capacity of 32GB, and i DONT appreciate being called a fraudster and branded as one on your crappy little website, you clearly have nothing better to do with your time than put your little play pictures up on your website, now if the buyer had of written to me before hand instead of uploading his “pretty” little picture of my ebay profile to you “no life retards” i would of happily given him a refund for the ONE GENUINE faulty card, but now he has spoilt his chances. now when you have finished having your little “thrills of Wooooo i made a website and put a picture up” and your comeing back to earth after growing up, i will be quite happy for you to take your spazzy little picture down 🙂

    kind regards
