rickysell819 Ebay Fake Flash Seller – Canada – Case Of Ricky The Tricky

Posted by KittyFireFlash on September 6, 2009

rickysell819 is an eBay seller of Counterfeit (Fake – false capacity) Flash USB drives. Registered in Canada, rickysell819 was the reincarnation of save_big4real. Same eBay region and later as victims discovered, same address. rickysell819 sold items he did under save_big4real (see previous article). Having a degree of ego, the leatherette usb flash drives were embrossed with his previous eBay seller id. Not bright.

He was spotted by fake flash angels. Buyers were contacted, the dots connected – the addressing information compared.

He earned the name “Ricky The Tricky“.

He manage to sell about 130 fake flash pen drives, before the Fake Flash Angels caught up with him. He was suspended by eBay. Consumer laws appear to be taken more seriously by eBay in Canada. The government over there has sharp teeth.

Victims did contact Ricky The Tricky. In fact some lived very close to him. In his second selling spree, he used a different name, same address with an apartment number. Odd, give the address was for a house.

“Ricky The Tricky” found himself in a lot of pain, similar to the pain he caused for others.

He had invested a great deal of money in those fake usb flash drives, refused to accept the financial loss or face the consequences of what he had done to others under save_big4real. Instead, he thought it was perfectly fine to continue to harm others under the id of rickysell819. He felt he deserved to get all of his money back. It did not matter what would happen to others.

He felt he was a victim and he came first.

rickysell819 – Ricky The Tricky reeled in shock. The id was suspended. He never dreamed people were watching him and patrolling. He thought he would get away with it. Ricky The Tricky, learned otherwise. He was painfully aware, many of his victims lived just a short drive away. He enjoyed the horror or pleasure of telephone calls and conversations from his victims.

The last news on Ricky The Tricky was that he was busy drowning himself in a puddle of beer.

SOSFakeFlash does not know what happened to him in the end. Some victims intended to report him to the RCMP, the national police in Canada.

The most interesting thing about the case of rickysell819 aka SaveBig4Real, is how eBay victims can organize and catch fake flash sellers. It reveals a dark side in people. How sellers who discover they were victims (purchased false capacity items), feel justified in continuing to sell to reclaim their costs. Victims have a very dim view of people who do this.

Hopefully in the the hereafter, they bake on very same fake flash nand chips from the devices they sold – down below.

It can be traumatic and a terrible discovery for an eBay seller to learn their items were not genuine capaicty, but they should not continue to sell these dangerous items to reclaim their costs. Instead they should focus their attention on the source of their volume purchase with the full force of law. Many victims sellers do. Many have received their money back. If the source is in their home country, there is a good chance at recovery of funds. It purchased abroad, it becomes a sad lesson instead.

mike56888 Ebay Fake Flash Seller High Alert Devious – China

Posted by KittyFireFlash on August 7, 2009

mike56888 is an eBay seller of Counterfeit (Fake) Flash USB drives. Registered in China, mike56888 sold false capacity usb flash drives. This seller is trying to hide from eBay victims and has just recently made his feedback private.

A victim reports:

I am currently in discussion with seller trying to get a refund. The seller will not give me a refund without sending back the fake drive. He claims he needs to give it back to his supplier in order to get his money back also. He claims to be a victim as well. At this stage I think I will send it back. Here is the wording from the sellers last email to me

Dear friend
thanks for your letter very sorry for this, i’m also a victim,
i’m buy this item from other company, the company tell me the item is 16GB,
please understanding me, i agree return you all money.
your need return the item to me, because i need return this item to company,
and the company can return my money, your return fee i can pay half.
very sorry again!
thank you
best regard

– mike56888.

There is a problem with this seller SOSFakeFlash explained to the victim. eBay sellers who cry “I am a victim too!” do not race to change their feedback to private. In doing so they are avoiding their responsibilites as sellers.

mike56888 fake flash seller is trying to blame some one else. What effort is this seller making to contact his buyers, to warn them about pending data loss from using the dangerous usb drives he has sold? Is he refunding them?

In hiding his feedback, ebay seller mike56888 has earned the classification of “devious“, not the status of a victim seller. A true victim seller does not attempt to run from the damage he has done.

How do we know? The FrankenFlash project was co founded, by eBay victim sellers and eBay buyer members.

The victim’s final thoughts:

I contacted Ebay and they advise to talk to the local police and that is about all they can do. They mentioned that they have no responsibility for the integrity of items offered. If this is as wide spread as we now know it is surely they could post a warning in one of the promotion emails they send to members.

Report in to SOSFakeFlash if your testing confirms you have a false capacity device.

eBay Fraud – A Powerseller eBay Can Not Stop From Harming Buyers Currently Known as intertrade-connection

Posted by KittyFireFlash on August 1, 2009

FakeFlashReprogrammerPowerseller ids with high feedback scores do not have to follow eBay rules. They are immune and do as they please. intertrade-connection has a feedback score of over 27,000. Very skilled at getting victims of fake usb flash drives, memory cards and mp players to change their feedback. How long have eBay members tried to STOP this seller from harming others? 13 months. The first documented fake was in June, 2008!

How is intertrade-connection getting away with massive fraud?

1) Private Auctions
2) Exceptionally High eBay Feedback score

and of course changing his id name to evade detection. intertrade-connection was previously known as i.c.distribution and before that, i.c.distribution and earlier as i.c_electronics. Three id changes in 13 months? Exactly what kind of seller would do this? An honest one? Not likely. Our database is designed to track this kind of evasion.

intertrade-connection is very much aware of the FrankenFlash Project and SOSFakeFlash. That is why he changed to private auctions, to bury the fraudulent activity even deeper.

You would think that eBay would DO SOMETHING! They can’t.

intertrade-connection knows this and will continue to sell items with false memory capacity, so harmful to data.

You would think that if ebay was so powerless to act against the sellers score, they would at least prevent the seller from using private auctions to level the playing field and allow eBay members to do their dirty work and bring the seller down with negative feedback. eBay won’t. They need intertrade-connection’s fee’s. eBay continues to lose members and it is no secret as to why.

Exactly what kind of a powerseller has over 270 negative feedback’s in 6 months?

http://toolhaus.org/cgi-bin/negs?User=intertrade-connection&Dirn=Received+by

There are lot of games being played by intertrade-connection.

Private Auctions or not, eBay victims are starting to leave negative feedback and they are leaving clues about the items they purchased. intertrade-connection might try to change his id again, but the negative feedback has to remain, otherwise he must surrender his high score and that is one thing intertrade-connection is not prepared to do.

If eBay refuses to do anything about fraudulent activities especially against this long term offender, it is up to you. Each negative is a voice and a permanent testimony. Contact buyers who bought any eBay item that shows “private” – warn them. If you found out too late, you can still leave follow up feedback telling the truth.

13 months ago this seller got away with it, almost no negatives. People did not understand what was going on. That is changing. SOSFakeFlash is seeing buyers fighting back with their feedback vote. You can too!

Background:

If you are a victim of intertrade-connection you have a choice to make.

1) Allow this powerseller id to continue to fraud – do nothing
2) Say NO! Fight back

If you don’t mind losing your data and your money, option one is the best choice.

If you don’t like what happened to you, you must fight back. FraudedBuyersThis is a dangerous seller and a very old one. The FrankenFlash Project can not do all the work for you. We need the army of victims to take down the nasty powersellers. Only when victims join together do these nasty sellers get shut down. The most famous example of what ebayers can do is seller 3totrade. 113 fakes recorded. How did that happen? It happened when eBayers decided to contact other eBayers and warn them. It grew. People tested and contacted others.

In the case of intertrade-connection it is now more difficult since the seller hides behind private auctions. It is not a problem, any feedback that shows “private” for an ebay item number is one thing – Fake Flash! intertrade-connection has made it easy for you. “Private” will lead you to a victim! eBay only allows you to send 5 messages a day, so you need other victims to join in. Get them to report to us at SOSFakeFlash using the Report A Fake Tab

We will take care of the rest and enter the data. You must be curious on the “How”, that we will not reveal. You would be surprised to learn who is unhappy about this terrible problem

Make sure to leave the calling card of “SOSFakeFlash” and “H2testw” in feedback to help others. If you left positive feedback, do a followup feedback to tell the truth! Let people know what you bought from this nasty fraudster!

uk-choice Ebay Fake Flash Seller Alert Devious – Internet ukmobi Kingston Technology Fraud – United Kingdom

Posted by techchips on August 1, 2009

uk-choice is an eBay seller of Counterfeit (Fake) Kingston DataTraveler Flash USB drives. Registered in the United Kingdom, uk-choice also has an independent website, ukmobi. This seller is ignorant of the technology he sells. One of the worse examples the FrankenFlash Project has uncovered so far. You will find this example astonishing!

uk-choice-8GB as 4GB

Advertising at 8GB for this model,the photo is correct for the 8GB DataTraveler. Only they actually say the size is 4GB and in fact that is the tested capacity. The information on this fact has also independently been preserved.

Is it possible this seller simply has no understanding of the products he sells, or employee’s don’t?

On eBay uk-choice has released dangerous false capacity usb flash drives for sale. Furthermore, in using private actions for usb flash drives, uk-choice earns the classification of devious. This auction category is the most dangerous for nand based flash technology, it has allowed too many fraudlent sellers to victimize eBay members and to escape detection – increasing the number of victims.

As a result of complaint, what did uk-choice do?

1) Continue to list on eBay

uk-choice-changes 8GB to 4GB on eBay

But modify the title, yet show the same correct colour for the Kingston DataTraveler 8GB. Then further down in the listing shows:

uk-choice-changes DataTraveler 4GB Black on eBay

Sorry there never was a 4GB Kingston DataTraveler in Black!

2) Makes similar changes at their own website.

uk-choice-changes 8GB to 4GB

Their website: http://www.ukmobi.co.uk/Product_info.asp?id=1501

The FrankenFlash Project has never seen such stupidity or ignorance of technology. Both uk-choice and ukmobi SELL technology. Are you frightened? If not you should be!

The test results for this usb flash drive:

Warning: Only 7983 of 7984 MByte tested.
The media is likely to be defective.
3.9 GByte OK (8285056 sectors)
3.8 GByte DATA LOST (8064128 sectors)
Details:2.8 GByte overwritten (6048096 sectors)
0 KByte slightly changed (< 8 bit/sector, 0 sectors)
984.3 MByte corrupted (2016032 sectors)
1.5 KByte aliased memory (3 sectors)
First error at offset: 0x00000000fcd70000
Expected: 0x00000000fcd70000
Found: 0x00000000aa55aa55
H2testw version 1.3
Writing speed: 6.45 MByte/s
Reading speed: 18.6 MByte/s
H2testw v1.4

We doubt very much that this fraudster has been staying up all night performing low level formats to return these usb flash drives to the correct size of the actual flash storage chips. Any consumer who uses this flash drive would lose data after 3.9 GB without a corrective to return the usb flash drives to their actual capacity.

Even if uk-choice and ukmobi did this it is fraud. Why? Contact Kingston to ask their opinions!

uk-choice and ukmobi stubborn resolve to unload these dangerous devices to unsuspecting consumers demonstrates just how low some sellers can be. Anything to make money, anything to recover their capital. It doesn’t matter that they are harming Kingston Technologies reputation or causing data loss to consumers.

Profit at any cost, is the mantra uk-choice and ukmobi chant.

Important Reading:

Report in to SOSFakeFlash if your testing confirms you have a false capacity device.

Don’t forget to leave the calling card of “SOSFakeFlash” and “H2testw” in your feedback to help others. Do not change your feedback to get a refund – you will only create more victims. See what we have on file.

eBay Fraud! flea_auction aka gamers-auction aka flea-auction Ebay Fake Flash Seller High Alert Devious- Hong Kong

Posted by KittyFireFlash on June 24, 2009

eBay seller flea_auction demonstrates how fraud is easily carried out on eBay. Sellers of fake flash devices such as usb flash drives, memory cards and MP Players are skilled in frauding buyers. They easily manipulate eBay and know it’s weaknesses and exploit them!

SOSFakeFlash launches MP Player education week with this seller! Why? To demonstrate how a seller can continue to engage in frauding buyers.

On May 29, 2009 SOSFakeFlash Published: gamers-auction aka flea-auction Ebay Fake Flash Seller High Alert Devious- Hong Kong

This seller changed his id name to avoid detection. Now he has changed it again! So alerts should now read: “flea_auction aka gamers-auction aka flea-auction“. That makes for a very long title line. Will he change his name again? Probably. This a powerseller who thinks he is smart. Well in using private auctions, we can say he is intelligent in frauding. In his feedback where ever you see “private” instead of an ebay item number you are guaranteed he sold a fake flash item. This is how the game is played for persistent fake flash sellers on eBay. They take the longest to expose and they hurt the most eBayers. So what is he selling since he changed his id again? Have a look. This is important reading for anyone who bought an MP Player on eBay!

Do you want to find out what the real capacity sizes are for usb flash drives manufactured by Kingston Technologies. It is easy with their feature for searching their consumer usb flash drive products. You can select the capacity and see which product lines offer the desired capacity.

Almost all major brand names are currently under attack from counterfeiters. Two companies, Kingston and Sony are fighting back. Kingston is applying additional effort to aid consumers world wide. They have a serial verification site and now have improved their search feature to show what are the capacity sizes they manufactured for a particular product line. Read the rest of this entry »

appolly Ebay Fake Flash Seller Alert – China

Posted by KittyFireFlash on March 29, 2009

appolly is an eBay seller of Counterfeit (Fake) Flash USB drives and soon to be discovered MP Players. Based in China appolly is busy selling – harvesting another fake flash profit crop. If you bought appolly, test!

Is this seller id connected to other id’s? Naturally. SOSFakeFlash is publishing everything the seller sells. So far the current count is over 1100+ items sold. Need a hint? Look at the previous post and tell us what you see? In fact, have a child under the age of 8 look at the two posts – what do they see?

This is another cycle repeat of fake flash selling. If only eBay would actually have a few employee’s addressing the issue. They said in the summer of 2008 eBay had 2000+ working against fraud, going after counterfeiters and fraud. We don’t think so.

Once again SOSFakeFlash has a question for eBay.

Will eBay try to hide the truth about this seller by deregistering him so we can begin the chase again? The endless chase.

Don’t jump up and down with joy when eBay deregisters a seller!

It is not really for the protection of eBayers. It is so that eBay can get rid of the evidence. No listings for anyone to inspect. This causes additional work for the FrankenFlash project. We are forced to delay issuing alerts to the internet to warn members. Why? To preserve the evidence – first. This was not necessary in the past, but now eBay is monitoring the site and trying to sweep things quickly under the rug. “When little red riding hood came calling…” (eBay will know what this means) we understood it was not your interest being served (all eBay fake flash victims for the last 6 years). To protect you, eBay must change the rules for listing usb flash based technology and they are not willing to do this. It is cheaper to deregister sellers and hide evidence then to spend money from fees they collect from fake flash selling to fix the issue. The fancy term is “risk management”. It should not require an army of programmers to change things unless the sites are poorly designed. Let’s see what eBay is going to do…

If you want this seller stopped – roll up your sleeves and start contacting his buyers. It is called fake flash angel duty and is best performed by the victims of the seller to be shut down.

Important Reading:

Report in to SOSFakeFlash if your testing confirms you have a false capacity device.

Have a look at all the models being sold.

guople Ebay Fake Flash Seller Alert – China

Posted by KittyFireFlash on March 29, 2009

guople is an eBay seller of Counterfeit (Fake) Flash USB drives and MP Players. Based in China guople is busy selling – Again! If you bought anything from this seller you better test it immediately. SOSFakeFlash is more than annoyed with this seller id. Hint. Seller id. This time we are publishing every item listed for sale! Unfortunately under this id over 1000+ items have been sold already to eBayers. It goes on and on.

eBay does not do it’s homework. Yes they have automated computer systems – designed for only one thing, SELL! SOSFakeFlash can tell you from observing eBay behavior ove 11 months they do not have any group or at least some one to track and stop fake flash sellers – especially from wriggling back on to eBay to start up again. We eventually stop a person and his id’s. He limps into hiding. Then he sneaks back under new id’s. We start all over again.

If you want this seller stopped – roll up your sleeves and start contacting his buyers.

It is called fake flash angel duty and is best performed by the victims of the seller to be shut down.

The big question is? Will eBay play dirty again? Try to deregister the seller id so that the evidence disappears for victims? Or will eBay for the first time allow this seller to experience the wrath of eBay members preventing him from running? If eBay does pull the id, we will have this seller resurface soon, again!

SOSFakeFlash is not going to publish the connections of previous id’s for now. We can say the history goes back in time and it only demonstrates how determined these people are to unleash a fake flash plague on eBay. Money regardless of who they hurt or the consequences of data loss.

Important Reading:

Report in to SOSFakeFlash if your testing confirms you have a false capacity device.

Have a look at all the models being sold.
