Ebay member leo19600_0 (based in Belgium) was warned by an ebay member that this flash drive was likely to be a fake and advised to test with h2testw. This seller bought flash drives on ebay from fraudsters we are keeping an eye on. The response from leo19600_0 was that the flash drive works fine – we think not!!

Either seller leo19600_0 failed to understand or doesn’t care about selling fakes. Please ebayers – if someone suggests you have bought or listed for sale an item that is likely to be fake and suggests you test with h2test, take it seriously! Fake flash memory corrupts files – many people have lost data that no amount of money could replace due to using fake 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 your fake if testing confirms you have purchased fake capacity flash memory on ebay.

another ebay fraudster selling fake USB flash drives

Seller ivan.101sg is part of a fraud ring we have been watching for some time. This gang has a habit of claiming the fakes they sell are made in Japan so fightflashfraud christened them the singjapan gang. Most of the feedback for ivan.101sg is fake – left by other members of this fraud gang. This 64GB USB flash drive is a fake that will trash users’ files after a while.

We don’t think this USB flash drive on ebay was made by Sony

We don’t think these flash drives listed on ebay by achun16888 (a seller in China) were made by Sony – we think they are counterfeit as we can find no trace of them on Sony’s web site.

32GB USB flash drives in private 1 day auctions – highly suspect!

leave a comment »

Seller garysin2008 is using private one day ebay auctions to sell what we are certain are fake capacity flash drives that will trash users’ files after a while. This is a devious tactic used by fraudsters to hide their crimes!

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.
UPDATE
Seller garysin2008 has now been suspended by ebay as a result of the negative feedback from buyers.

Another member of a Singapore based ebay fraud ring

leave a comment »

Seller madz-sales2009 is part of a fraud ring that has sprung up in Singapore over the last couple of months. We suspect that action against Hong Kong based fraud rings has been stepped up by the police there and that the fraudsters are moving their operations to Singapore. This leather-look flash drive is a well known fake sold on ebay by fraud gangs for years – it corrupts users’ files after a while.

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.

gremlin2sIs there someone you really hate? Would you like to see all their computer files trashed? – here is the answer – buy your enemy a “Nice gift for Christmas” from lihinglung168!! Your enemy will eventually lose everything they saved to the flash drive you bought for them from this ebay gremlin.
