Fighting flash fraud on Ebay

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

USB flash drives on ebay from individual221 sure to be fakes

As seller individual221 is registered in Mexico but the USB flash drives being auctioned on ebay by this seller have very low start prices and are being sent from Hong Kong we conclude that this seller has foolishly entered into a drop-shipping arrangement with a fraudulent supplier. If we are right – and we are pretty certain we are – any USB flash drive purchase from this seller is fake capacity and 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.

  1. I have attempted to cancel a purchased of this item through Ebay but the seller seems to take no notice..

    I say DO NOT SEND on 17th Jan and then get an EMail today (20th) saying they have posted item..
    They talk to customers in bad english and are up-front rude, calling me ‘crazy’ for example.

    There are others out there for example ‘forehea366’ and another ‘individual341’ All of them have One Revue..
    I have not received item yet so cannot comment on reliability, but if it does arrive will keep you posted… John…
