    Your list keeps going up slowly. a lot of bad sellers out there. You dont have all the bad guys.

  2. badger said

    hi
    been in touch with you before you know who i am. would’nt it be great if ebay posted a warning on the top of each selling page about these crooks. or hold money from these sellers for a month until they prove that they arent selling fakes. youve really got me interested in your work. please keep it up

    badger

  3. KittyFireFlash said

    To Alan

    True, our list doesn’t have all the fake flash sellers out there. The list can not contain sellers we “suspect”. It can only have sellers where there is evidence the seller sold a fake or counterfeit flash drive – false capacity. Those are the rules.

    The only way the list can catch more sellers is by:

    1) Independent Fake Flash Angels making sure to forward victims to us at our email with the supporting information. See report a fake tab.

    2) People who report to us independently using the report a fake tab, make sure to send all the information we need. If they don’t include their own ebay id – we can’t add.

    Why? We double check to make sure they bought what they say the bought. The ebay item number is not enough for the cross checking in most cases. Again it is the rules.

    We can’t just have people reporting in with out all the information. Otherwise a witch hunt could develop.

    3) Regular Fake Flash Angels also need to send in the info the other email addresses on time. It is a tough call for them sometimes – the objective is to WARN and to RESCUE people from potentially losing precious information. Also helping them to fight their claims – very time consuming if you factor in counseling.

    4) More People warning others on eBay and channeling the information to us. It has to be done quickly. These sellers are now dumping and hiding. Dumping and hiding.

    So to catch more, we need more help and of course good data.

    Any seller who makes it to this list, well you can believe the seller was involved in selling fake flash devices on eBay!

    Our PDF file reports record the details in living colour.

    Everyone can make a difference, either by reporting their fake to us and or warning eBayers by sending messages to TEST! If you chose to warn, do so in a friendly non aggressive manner. In a helpful way. Mention the program H2testw If they google, they will come straight into our welcoming arms for help.

    You can catch more flys with honey than you can with vinegar

    BTW I am not saying victims are flies…I happen to be a victim of fake flash myself, but you get the point.

    Once we have the data needed, we will issue alerts and add to the list.

    So bottom line is, to catch more “bad guys” more help is needed.

    Thanks again for you work and for maintaining this list.

    Good list. I was actually scammed by two of the now deregistered sellers. Neither sent the goods after I included a notation about ‘fake’ drives in the Paypal comments section. One of them refunded as soon as I lodged a claim with Paypal, but the other strung it out and it was over two months before I got a result – my money back. In the meantime transactions were canceled by Ebay and both the sellers were deregistered, yet even after this action I still had to fight for my money. The end result is that I no longer buy overseas and use Paypal.

  6. fightflashfraud said

    Unfortunately we have found that eBay and PayPal are not very good at living up to their claims about buyer protection. The safest thing is to pay via PayPal using a credit card – then you have the extra level of protection given by your card company.

  7. KittyFireFlash said

    This is true. SOSFakeFlash released an article on this. See:

    Looks like you guyz are winning!

  9. Brian said

    How does a seller get off this list?

  10. KittyFireDove said

    To Brian

    To get “off” the list, the seller need to come clean. That means contacting every single buyer to warn, apologize and refund. For big sellers proof is needed. They should contact eBay too.

    You should know a lot of sellers who sold fake flash are not on this list – victim sellers. When they discovered the awful truth, they did the right thing – contacted buyers, refunded buyers. They are not on this list.

    We have also had people contact sellers and ask if they have tested to make sure they really have the true capacity of what they advertise. This has been done in many regions of the world over 10 months. Difficult work. Many did test. They pulled their listings immediately. Quite a few thanked the eBayer who warned them. Naturally the eBayers patroled to make sure they did not come back to see the same items. Almost all did not. So they are not on this list because they did the right thing.

    As for sellers who did not reply – odd thing, they eventually made it to this list. What does that tell you?

  11. fightflashfraud said

    Sellers should heed warnings from ebayers about fake flash. The ebayers who tell them drives are fake usually know what they are talking about. They have done the research and know what is genuine and what is fake. Any seller who gets such a warning should remove the item from sale and test their drives with h2testw. After all – what will they lose by doing the right thing? Nothing. If the drive is ok they can re-list and (as I understand it) they get a refund of the re-listing fees if the item sells.

  12. Robert said

    I noticed you list is not up to date. When will you be releasing a new one?

  13. fightflashfraud said

    At the moment members of the project are working flat out on other issues so the list won’t be updated for a while as quite a bit of work needs to be done on the database. However, watch out for posts about sellers we are aware of.

  14. Clifford said

    I have just encountered your program and the 16GB Silver USB Flash Drive sold to me from epc*vauxhall – already on your list is so BAD , it corrupts all new files above 2GB and your test showed 14GB failed/corrupted. I just emailed him as he’s using the same email but a different ID which Ebay will not give as it’s not recent transaction. A bit unfair as a new part should have a years guarantee or reasonable use at least. With light usage it took months to realise the error.

    I wish i could add to his bad flash count.
