appolly Ebay Fake Flash Seller Alert – China

Posted by KittyFireFlash on March 29, 2009

appolly is an eBay seller of Counterfeit (Fake) Flash USB drives and soon to be discovered MP Players. Based in China appolly is busy selling – harvesting another fake flash profit crop. If you bought appolly, test!

Is this seller id connected to other id’s? Naturally. SOSFakeFlash is publishing everything the seller sells. So far the current count is over 1100+ items sold. Need a hint? Look at the previous post and tell us what you see? In fact, have a child under the age of 8 look at the two posts – what do they see?

This is another cycle repeat of fake flash selling. If only eBay would actually have a few employee’s addressing the issue. They said in the summer of 2008 eBay had 2000+ working against fraud, going after counterfeiters and fraud. We don’t think so.

Once again SOSFakeFlash has a question for eBay.

Will eBay try to hide the truth about this seller by deregistering him so we can begin the chase again? The endless chase.

Don’t jump up and down with joy when eBay deregisters a seller!

It is not really for the protection of eBayers. It is so that eBay can get rid of the evidence. No listings for anyone to inspect. This causes additional work for the FrankenFlash project. We are forced to delay issuing alerts to the internet to warn members. Why? To preserve the evidence – first. This was not necessary in the past, but now eBay is monitoring the site and trying to sweep things quickly under the rug. “When little red riding hood came calling…” (eBay will know what this means) we understood it was not your interest being served (all eBay fake flash victims for the last 6 years). To protect you, eBay must change the rules for listing usb flash based technology and they are not willing to do this. It is cheaper to deregister sellers and hide evidence then to spend money from fees they collect from fake flash selling to fix the issue. The fancy term is “risk management”. It should not require an army of programmers to change things unless the sites are poorly designed. Let’s see what eBay is going to do…

If you want this seller stopped – roll up your sleeves and start contacting his buyers. It is called fake flash angel duty and is best performed by the victims of the seller to be shut down.

Important Reading:

Report in to SOSFakeFlash if your testing confirms you have a false capacity device.

Have a look at all the models being sold.

guople Ebay Fake Flash Seller Alert – China

Posted by KittyFireFlash on March 29, 2009

guople is an eBay seller of Counterfeit (Fake) Flash USB drives and MP Players. Based in China guople is busy selling – Again! If you bought anything from this seller you better test it immediately. SOSFakeFlash is more than annoyed with this seller id. Hint. Seller id. This time we are publishing every item listed for sale! Unfortunately under this id over 1000+ items have been sold already to eBayers. It goes on and on.

eBay does not do it’s homework. Yes they have automated computer systems – designed for only one thing, SELL! SOSFakeFlash can tell you from observing eBay behavior ove 11 months they do not have any group or at least some one to track and stop fake flash sellers – especially from wriggling back on to eBay to start up again. We eventually stop a person and his id’s. He limps into hiding. Then he sneaks back under new id’s. We start all over again.

If you want this seller stopped – roll up your sleeves and start contacting his buyers.

It is called fake flash angel duty and is best performed by the victims of the seller to be shut down.

The big question is? Will eBay play dirty again? Try to deregister the seller id so that the evidence disappears for victims? Or will eBay for the first time allow this seller to experience the wrath of eBay members preventing him from running? If eBay does pull the id, we will have this seller resurface soon, again!

SOSFakeFlash is not going to publish the connections of previous id’s for now. We can say the history goes back in time and it only demonstrates how determined these people are to unleash a fake flash plague on eBay. Money regardless of who they hurt or the consequences of data loss.

Important Reading:

Report in to SOSFakeFlash if your testing confirms you have a false capacity device.

Have a look at all the models being sold.

niuren2008 Ebay Fake Flash Seller High Alert Deregistered – China – Counterfeit DT150 32GB 32 GB Data Traveler 150

Posted by KittyFireFlash on March 29, 2009

niuren2008 was an eBay seller of Counterfeit (Fake) Flash USB drives.

This is the second eBay seller detected selling counterfeit Kingston DT150 32GB 32 GB DataTraveler 150 usb flash drives. The first was abestpartner0.

Based in China niuren2008 sold over 1500+ counterfeit DT150 32GB 32 GB DataTraveler 150 USB 2.0 Flash Drives. For the news breaking story on the first id see Kingston Counterfeit Fake 32GB DataTraveler 150 USB Flash Drive Found On eBay. You will find the necessary information to validate your kingstone serial number in that article too. Report in to SOSFakeFlash if your testing confirms you have a false capacity device! Your evidence is needed.

The FrankenFlash Project is thunderstuck! The sheer volume of these listings was amazing. eBay once again is asleep at the wheel. If you bought one of these items, make sure to report in to us!

Important Reading:

Report in to SOSFakeFlash if your testing confirms you have a false capacity device.

SOSFakeFlash advises that you do not buy any Kingston DT150 32GB or 64GB DataTraveler 150 usb flash drives on eBay. The risk of being scammed or frauded is just too high. Buying in your local eBay country is no guarantee of receiving a genuine flash drive.

If you wish to buy from a local eBay seller, please contact the seller and ask where they purchased their stock. If from the Orient, Beware! You should demand a written email guarantee that the seller certifies the DT150 DataTraveler is genuine. You can point them to our sites and articles. If their merchandise has the same serial information, it is pretty obvious they have purchased counterfeits. In that case they should remove their listings immediately and contact Kingston for help! Beware of realistic prices, you aren’t going to get a genuine DT150 DataTraveler for $30 US.

Have a look at the prices at a famous discount and honest internet site:

If your data matters, consider buying from a Kingston site in your country. People who are now victims of these two eBay sellers, if they add up time spent and aggravation and computed to their hourly wage – could have bought several drives by now – all genuine.

For fake flash seller niuren2008, you can vote, by reporting your item to us to add to the database. Make sure you file a claim with PayPal and do not take any nonsense about sending the item back. PayPal knows better! Read: PayPal Apologizes To eBayer Ordered Return Counterfeit Items Using Postal Services – Fake Flash eBay Sellers
