mpp*11226 Ebay Fake Flash Seller Alert – United States

Posted by KittyFireFlash on November 30, 2008

mpp*11226 is an eBay seller of Counterfeit Flash USB drives. Based in the United States, mpp*11226 sold fake 8GB and 16 flash usb drives estimated at over 1,000 units. SOSFakeFlash would like to point out the use of an asterisk “*” in the sellers id, this is often a calling card for a fake flash drive seller, it confuses a lot of search engines especially eBay searching.

If you bought a flash drive from map*11226 you are at risk of data loss. There is nothing “defective” with the drive you purchased. A fake is a pen drive that has been digitally altered. The controller chip has been manipulated to lie about the true capacity of the flash drive so it looks “bigger” than it actually is. The moment you exceed the real capacity you will lose your data.

Please read on to know what to do or if you are a person who assumes that the United States is a safe country to buy flash drives from on their local eBay.
