We hope this list helps you. If you see a seller making his feedback private, he is trying to hide the evidence. When a seller is deregistered he either ran from eBay or eBay has suspended him. Remember, if a seller does this, you can still make a claim at Paypal if you are in the time window!

If you don’t see your seller on this list and you have tested (see H2testw 1.4 – Gold Standard In Detecting USB Counterfeit Drives ). Use the Report A Fake tab to send in your information to add to the list. We can’t send out an internet alert without proof to warn the public. If your is on this list but you did not report your fake please do give a more accurate count against a fake flash seller.

If you found the list helpful, leave a comment! You do have to put in your email address, but we are not spying on you, it is to prevent spamming of this site!

We found the tool from Toolhaus.org very helpful to investigate. If you find that Toolhaus.org has helped you, be kind – donate to them.

    you must add seler: luring62

    He sells fake 360 gb “kingston” usb keys in ebay

    http://cgi.ebay.fr/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=220379547359

  2. KittyFireFlash said

    To Everyone

    It’s an obvious fake. There is NO SUCH THING AS A 360GB usb flash drive available on the market! Kingston and all the other companies do not make anything about 64GB.

    Unfortunately not only is the seller hiding the buyer id’s but until there is feedback – nothing can be done. The evil of private auctions on ebay.

    The only hope is to wait for somebody to leave feedback and if they do and the item number is “private” we all know what they bought – one of these outragous fakes! Please contact anyone who leaves feedback for this seller where the item number is private!

    There is a new site coming that will hopefully spread the word on the internet soon about such crazy sizes!

    There is only one way to stop it – we need help! Your help.

    How can I tell? I bought a 16gb generic MP4 Player from one of your listed eBay Fake Sellers List. Unit froze up loading at about 8gb, corrupted some files and made them undeletable with odball names including ‘squares’. After cleaning it up with Windows Disk Error Checking Tools, and a clean virus scan, Windows XP Explorer shows: Capacity 16,319,479,808 – 13.8 GB Used Space
    Two folders, One’s properties report 6.26GB, other 0mb.

    H2testw says all available space 1403 Mbyte

    Unit’s internal About System says flashmem: 0/7877mb

    On opening the case Unit has 2 (two) SpecTek FBNL52A32K3W2 (indicated as 8gb each on SpecTek website) chips soldered onto the main board. 16gb??????

    How can I tell if I have a fraudulant unit or one that just has a bad memory chip on it. Seller seems responsive offering replacement or discount. I didn’t accuse him of anything only reported that I had a problem. Why would hacked units have 2 8gb memory simms?

  4. Dakota Brink said

    Best2You886 sold me a fake 16GB SD card… why is he still selling on EBay??
    Why isn’t he kicked off ebay?
    This sucks.. I opened a case to get my money back though.

  5. Keith said

    domi.krak1804 sold me two fake 16gb drives, but refunded my paypal instantly after receiving my email threatening negative feedback…..which I left anyway after the refund ;o)
    What amazes me is the number of peeps that are happy with their purchase’s ???…..but I do note that domi.krak1804 has withdrawn future ebay sales of the ’16gb Flash Drive pen stick 16 gb uk seller’

    What pleases me most is that domi.krak1804 never even asked for the two drives to be retuned and with the help of this website I have managed to get them back to their original 1gb status. Not what I wanted in the first place but at least they are usable.

  6. kittyfireflash said

    To Keith

    We will be contacting you for further details. This seller first sold this drive as public auctions but then changed to the devious private auctions. You do not do this for a usb flash drive that costs 9.5 pounds. Unless you are suddenly trying to hide something.

    All eBayers thank you for doing the “right” thing. By leaving negative feedback and especially when the ebay item number is make private you have lit a lantern for other buyers to find out the truth and to find us for help. Bravo, for not only getting your money back but also forcing him to stop listing those drives! You have prevented new victims of fake flash being taken by him.

    Not all those positives are likely to be real postitives. In exchange for refunds, you would be suprised how many victims are silly enough to leave postive. Harsh words. But needed as those positives just create more victims. And still more victims….

  7. Mark said

    when will u update the list? the seller i nuked with neg is not there!

  8. Grace said

    Alright, I’m a total idiot. I just bid & won a 16GB mini USB pen drive from ic.distribution an hour ago without first doing research. It seems very likely that I’m going to be receiving a fake, and I do not enjoy the hassle of getting refunds. The saving grace is that I haven’t paid. I know I’ve entered a contract, but… is it better that I don’t pay? Can I point ebay to these fake flash sellers list and guides if any disputes arise?

  9. kittyfireflash said

    To Grace

    No you are not an idiot Grace, your 6th sense or intuition must have been guiding you. You should send an email to i.c.distribution advising that you expect that he confirm that you will receive a 16GB flash drive and that you are going to test it upon arrival. Unless you receive confirmation in writing that the unit is 16GB, and that i.c.distribution certified to you in email writing that it is so, you will report to eBay. If if you don’t get a response stating that you will receive a true capacity 16GB you have information for eBay. If you do get a confirmation that it will be 16GB and when it arrives it is not, you have the seller as well with documentation.

    Based on the sellers response to you, you can decide to pay or not. If you get no response, report to ebay. Unfortunately as you bid and won you are under a contract. You still have leverage in your case, it is not buyers remorse but buyer’s fright at receiving a dangerous device that could cause you to lose valuable data.

    Please give us an update. A new fake flash sellers list is in progress and is expected to go out with a week or so. At that time this list will be retired for the new one and yes it is longer with more sellers.

  10. Grace said

    Hi Kittyfireflash,

    Thank you for your kind reply 🙂

    I sent ic.distribution the message a few hours back and will update once I get a reply. It was certainly a tough lesson learnt!

  11. Grace said

    This was her reply: “Please don’t worry,i can promise that our item is a real 16GB item.if you don’t believe us,we can cancel the auction for you.please let us know your decision.”

    I’m still wary as I cannot afford the time wasted on trying to get refunds (if the worst case scenario happens) as I’d be travelling overseas for an extended period in 3 weeks. Any opinion on this? I feel bad not paying but this seller is said to be slippery…

  12. KittyFireFlash said

    To Grace

    Run for the high ground!

    Please take the opportunity to have your purchase canceled. We are very familiar with the wording and style of the email response.

    Sorting out the sellers, the good, the bad and the ugly is not easy.

    People contact sellers and make inquiries. How do I know your item is really xxGB? Did you test it and are you willing to swear it is the advertised size? That usually leads to silence or the response you have received…if you don’t trust me…don’t buy from me. Not the attitude of a seller looking to make a sale.

    In monitoring, sooner or later the seller who answers like that ends up being caught, most of the time. Those who ignore the request for reassurance and do not reply, in review, always turn out to be fake flash sellers.

    Some sellers will say yes! Then the person will ask…how do you know, what did you test with? A dialogue begins… A lot of effort has been spent trying to get sellers to test and drag those with good reputations out of the fake flash battle. Some with a bit of kicking and screaming. When they understand what is going on they are very grateful. Some are victims just like the rest of us…

    ic.distribution knows very well what he/she is doing and is no innocent. Previously this id was known as i.c_electronics

    You are very lucky, Grace take the opportunity to have the transaction cancelled.

    If you want to buy a flash drive, buy one locally even if it costs more. If there is a problem you have a face and a place. It is worth it in the end to buy one from a seller that has a good reputation and return/refund policy.

    and for any reader who wants to learn more about the seller under discussion please read:

    https://sosfakeflash.wordpress.com/2009/02/26/icdistribution-ebay-fake-flash-seller-alert-devious-reissued-hong-kong/

    for more details.

  13. Grace said

    Wow, guess what? After writing back that I wish to cancel the transaction, I got a payment reminder threatening me to send payment asap or they will file an unpaid item strike. And now the fight starts… heh.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
