Toward A Fake Flash Drive Free World – No More Counterfeits – No More Data Loss

tradingcameller Ebay Fake Flash Seller Alert Deregistered – Hong Kong

Posted by KittyFireFlash on January 30, 2009

tradingcameller was an eBay seller of Counterfeit (Fake) Flash USB drives. Based in Hong Kong this eBay selling id is different. There were over 40 listings active recently. There is an interesting difference in listing descriptions – the prefix of “genuine” or “mini”. It is possible that genuine refers to a true capacity brand name drive while, mini refers to a litte flash drive turned into a maxi (false capacity) usb flash drive.

Examining what tradingcameller has sold and is currently selling reveals a mixed grill. Fake flash devices mixed in with true capacity drives (brand names). This is an unusual combination. Is this id selling on behalf of others or is tradingcameller trying a new technique? Is the sellers name a hint?
