Posted by KittyFireFlash on September 28, 2011
The Memorette 32GB Micro SD/SDHC Card sold on eBay advertised as class 10 is usually a fake capacity card. Buyers discover the truth when they loose their photos or suspect something is wrong when the advertised speed is below expectations in comparison to other class 10 cards they have. 32GB flash memory is still expensive, yet people hunt eBay for bargains. While the Memorette brand is discounted flash memory it is not available at some of the prices the FrankenFlash Projects investigators found on eBay.
Frauded buyers on eBay for are trying to do their best to warn others:

Negative Feedback for Memorette cards leads to a seller being suspended. It required effort from buyers. eBay was forced to shut the seller down.
The need to promote consumer awareness for the issue on Memorette cards sold on eBay has started:

The internet site: FlashDriveFacts, published an excellent article on the subject, showing the real packaging for Memorette memory cards.
If you don’t receive the official packaging, you need to start worrying. Real memory cards do not come lose or in little plastic cases. The wholesale lot price for an internet seller of fake Memorette cards is very close to the buy now prices we are revealing here found on eBay:
What you are going to find very disturbing is the number of items each seller sold at the time the listings were captured. Get out your calculator and start summing the totals. They will have sold a lot more before they run from eBay or are suspended.
This should convince you that eBay is not the place to buy any MircoSD Cards.
If it does not, you might find yourself reporting to SOSFakeFlash shortly. Are these the only Memorette sellers involved in the scam? No.
Many eBay sellers currently under investigation, offer them with other fake flash memory items. Investigators for the FrankenFlash Project are forced to perform a risk assessment. A decision is made on the item likely to have the highest sales potential to naive buyers. This is the item the FakeMemorySentinel site will expose.
Strange is it not, that volunteers can spot fakes where eBay does not? Perhaps the best spotters are those who have had the unfortunate experience to buy a fake memory card on eBay. eBay does not want to spot them or to remove the listings. If they did, what would you find for sale in MircoSD Cards? Not very much.
- Did you buy from any of these sellers?
- Did eBay contact you and refund your money?
Or like so many other buyers, did eBay remove the listing from your won list and leave you in the dark? To search the internet for clues as to why your MircoSD Card is not working?
SanDisk provides a lot of self help to buyers for fake MircoSD Cards. Kingston tries to fight back against eBay and provides assistance to buyers who suspect they have fakes or counterfeits. Unfortunately, Memorette so far provides buyers with Zero help or assistance. It’s a cheaper brand, the customer service is not there for buyers in trouble. SOSFakeFlash has only one advice for you, if your Memorette card does not come in packaging shown at the FlashDriveFacts site, test immediately with H2testw. It will not tell you the class speed, but it will tell you the true capacity of the flash memory storage chip on board.

It is also the reason the FrankenFlash Project works so hard on your behalf, to capture the information BEFORE they can make it disappear. We all expect you to make your contribution – to fight back and get your refund. Consumer awareness is the key to stopping the fraud.
