Posted by KittyFireFlash on September 22, 2010
Singapore eBay sellers are notorious for selling fake flash memory products. Don’t think all the id’s are in China and Hong Kong. Internet sites have been battling the Singapore flash memory sellers for some time. When their id’s get wacked, they go dormant, stay quiet for a while, then they rise up with a new crop of id’s.

How do they prepare? They set up id’s to buy from the sellers.
Singapore eBay id’s that pretend to buy:
These id’s are buying from these eBay Fake Flash memory seller id’s:
FakeMemorySentinel will issue warnings in their Memory Singapore category. Some of these eBay Singapore id’s will run for cover, not sending the items, others will be suspended and a few will manage to escape for a while making a lot of money and harming a lot of eBay members.
If they get caught, then they are reported by SOSFakeFlash with all the details: Fake Flash Singapore
Both sites offer an impressive list of eBay Singapore fake flash memory sellers.
Eventually eBay will wake up when buyers start screaming and suspend them. Not a problem for the flash memory counterfeit ring in Singapore. The buyer id’s will step in and now become sellers. Interesting, isn’t it? eBay can’t suspend them when they pretend to buy from the current seller id’s. The Singapore fake memory sellers are very sharp, patient too. As this article is being typed, they are already registering new id’s. Their army is endless.
Singapore eBay sellers sell in 4GB 8GB 16GB 32GB 64GB 128GB 256GB and even 512GB advertised flash memory capacity. They love to sell Kingston usb flash drive fakes. Mostly they sell usb flash drives but some times they sell fake memory cards too. SOSFakeFlash has received quite a few reports on just how professional their packaging is for Kingston fakes. They are far more clever in their counterfeiting of Kingston products then China and Hong Kong. Nobody knows why. The best option for eBay members who have been frauded or suspect they have been frauded with a Kingston flash memory product sold by an eBay seller in Singapore is to:
1) Test with H2testw
2) Verify with Kingston Technologies
The counterfeit ring also sells the oldest fake known on eBay!
They sell it as low as 4GB and as high as 256GB. Of course the larger the advertised size, the higher they raise the price.
Sometimes FakeFlashCommando’s act and proactively buy and neg these sellers to torpedo their feedback score. Basically they do what the Singapore sellers do. Fight fire with fire. Lately they don’t bother. The fact is, it is eBay’s job to catch and remove these sellers.
SOSFakeFlash agrees. It is eBay’s job to catch the Singapore seller counterfeit ring. They are going to set up new ids as soon as the old ones are zapped.
It’s time for eBay’s fraud prevention unit to monitor eBay Singapore sellers who sell flash memory. Rise and shine eBay , you have your work cut out for you! We hope eBay will learn from this report. They are learning, but not at the pace they need to.
So eBay, don’t just concentrate on Kingston DT200 and DT310 being sold at ridiculous prices. Learn as the project has learned – the ways of the Singapore fake flash memory seller and just how organized they are.
eBay, make sure you issue immediate emails to buyers warning them not to purchase or go through with these transactions and ensure you refund every single buyer, immediately! An apologie to members would also be appreciated.
