katie_phoebe looks like an ebay fake flash flash fraudster to us

leave a comment »

The ebay item above sold by katie_phoebe demonstrates two reasons we think this Hong Kong based seller is yet another fraudster selling fake flash memory items:

1) The seller has massively loaded postage to evade ebay final value fees.
2) Auction started at 1p, so little chance of bids high enough to cover wholesale cost of a genuine drive -even with the loading on postage cost!

If you do a little research and have your brain engaged then it is not hard to avoid obvious fraudsters like this one! Think before you bid on ebay!! A massive amount of fraud is conducted on the site on a daily basis – there are bargains to be had on ebay but flash memory items are seldom among them.

We can say without much doubt that this USB flash drive is fake capacity and corrupts files. the same will apply to any flash memory item sold by katie_phoebe.

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.

Thread on redflag deal forum indicates someone bought a fake !!

leave a comment »

We noticed a thread on on the redflag deal forum that indicates that Aqua Uomo bought a fake 128GB flash drive. This person paid $50 for it and thinks it doesn’t work because he or she has an old computer and wants to trade it for a 32GB.

We can say without doubt that you cannot buy a genuine 128GB flash drive for $50!! The flash drive Aqua Uomo bought will be fake capacity – probably a maximum of 4GB – once the true capacity is reached it will corrupt 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.

yanglinshop – an ebay fraud ID in China selling fake flash drives

leave a comment »

Beware!! Avoid ebay seller yanglinshop. This is an ebay fraud ID in China used to sell fake flash memory which corrupts files amongst other rubbish that falls apart or doesn’t work according to what we read in the seller’s feedback. This ID no doubt belongs to one of the familiar fraud rings operating on ebay out of China.

Seller yanglinshop is one of the more devious sellers of fake capacity flash memory. The listing in which this fake capacity USB flash drive which corrupts files was sold was private all this seller’s listings seem to be. This is a cunning way of hiding what anyone who leaves negative feedback is complaining about! Never buy flash memory on ebay if the listing is private – you are fairly certain to get a fake that trashes your data!

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.

ebay seller choicenestore09 looks a bit dodgy to us!

Now why would anyone use a private listing to sell an MP player we wonder? Could it be that the players listed on ebay by seller choicenestore09 (registered in China) are fake capacity and will corrupt your music?

If you buy flash memory items (USB flash drives, memory cards, MP players etc) we strongly advise you 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.

Yet another devious oriental gremlin on ebay selling fake flash

leave a comment »

y56grd_6yhrt6

Is there no end to the number of gremlin IDs in the orient that ebay will allow to be registered? In other parts of the world they seem to have fairly strict identity checks – yet when it comes to the far east they seem to allow unlimited IDs for fraudsters with the same addresses.

We are certain that y56grd_6yhrt6 is yet another such fraudster. No one could sell a genuine 16gb flash drive on ebay for this price! The seller had over 400 of these available when the listing started and they seem to have been selling like hotcakes – shows how little most people know about the true cost of flash memory items!

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 in to SOSFakeFlash if your testing confirms you have purchased a false capacity device on ebay.
