nightstar136 is an eBay seller of Counterfeit Flash USB drives. Based in the United States nightstar136 offered 14 different listings for fake flash drives. His calling card is that he is a USA seller and offers statisfaction guaranteed with speedly shipping. His listings say he has 100% positive feedback. Not true, it is dropping rapidly as his fake flash merchandise is being found out by eBayers.

Right now nightstar136 is dumping his counterfeits as fast as he can – there are currently 60 listings:

5 UNITS- 16GB USB 2.0 PEN THUMB DRIVE FLASH MEMORY 16G (260322821383)

you can buy 5 for only $91 US. It happens to be the model SOSFakeflash has investigated. This seller is counting on you being naive and not understanding what fake flash drives are all about. Review of his feedback indicates that he has previously been involved in selling false capacity flash products as far back as December 2007.

It is important to understand that it is not a defect when a drive has been digitally altered to report a capacity that is larger than a flash chip can actually hold. It is illegal as well.

If you bought a flash drive from this seller you are at risk of data loss. Do not store any important information on the drive until you have tested it with the software SOSFakeFlash recommends and can confirm you received the advertised capacity.
