Fake Memory eBay 2010jingbo1980 Fake Flash Memory Seller Alert – China. China Scam Flash Memory. Join In Adding Nails To eBay’s Coffin For Participation In Fraud. How Kingston, SanDisk And Memorette Suffer Damage To Their High Quality Reputation.

Posted by KittyFireFlash on January 19, 2012

2010jingbo1980 is an eBay seller of Counterfeit (Fake hacked – false capacity memory) Flash USB drives and memory cards. Registered in China, 2010jingbo1980 has been suspended by eBay. Happy about the suspension? It’s a victory for eBay, not for a frauded flash memory buyer on eBay.

China is still the number one eBay source for fake flash memory sellers. They are an army of fraud. Shoot them down, 10 new seller id’s jump into the scam. You would think buyers on eBay would boycott. Nope, they race and run to buy, cheap is what attracts them. Cheap is not what they get, but a nightmare of data loss and frustration.

SOSFakeFlash News 20111228 – China Sellers Unleash A New Plague Of Fake Flash Memory On eBay. Buy Now Listings For SanDisk, Kingston, Memorette Counterfeits. Memory Cards And USB Flash Drives

Does it really matter what eBay China seller id is published at SOSFakeFlash for selling fakes? Nope. It don’t matter no how. What matters is one more nail in eBay’s coffin for permitting the sale of fake flash memory.

United States eBay Holds Second Place For Flash Memory Fraud 2012. mope4370 eBay Fake Flash Memory Seller – United States. Why Do People Think USA eBay Sellers Are Safe For Flash Memory?

Posted by KittyFireFlash on January 11, 2012

mope4370 is an eBay seller of Counterfeit (Fake hacked – false capacity memory) Flash USB drives and memory cards. Registered in the United States, mope4370 sold them in early 2010. Too many eBay buyers trust eBay sellers in the United States to bid and buy usb flash drives and memory cards, it is a big mistake.

Did you know that sellers registered on eBay USA are the second biggest source for the sale of fake flash memory? The United States currently holds 2nd place for flash memory fraud, just behind eBay China in SOSFakeFlash databases. The United Kingdom holds 5th place for eBay flash memory fraud.

Do frauded flash memory buyers get refunds from USA eBay sellers? Yes, they do, if they are committed and persistent. If they are willing to accept claims from sellers about the flash memory items being “defective” they will not. The truth is, H2testw testing, will let you know if the flash memory capacity is genuine or not. Manipulated flash memory chips overwrite the same area, again and again, that is the trick behind upgraded flash memory. Just try and access the files above real capacity, they won’t be there.

Warning: Only 125086 of 127968 MByte tested.
The media is likely to be defective.
50.0 MByte OK (102432 sectors)
122.1 GByte DATA LOST (256073696 sectors)
Details:122.1 GByte overwritten (256073696 sectors)
0 KByte slightly changed (< 8 bit/sector, 0 sectors)
0 KByte corrupted (0 sectors)
1.0 MByte aliased memory (2112 sectors)

H2testw version 1.3
Writing speed: 2.85 MByte/s
Reading speed: 15.2 MByte/s
H2testw v1.4

You will find some sellers blaming suppliers. They will try to get a sympathy vote, explaining you must return the item(s) so they can return them to the supplier. First of all, it is illegal in most countries to use the postal system to transport counterfeit and fraudulent items. Second, almost all sellers will ignore you once you have posted the item(s). The evidence is no longer in your possession so why should they bother with you?

Sadly, it is the trust eBay buyers have for USA sellers that has led United States eBay reaching second place in flash memory fraud. If the current trend continues, eBay in the United States could soon claim first place for flash memory fraud replacing China.

It seems buyers are just not willing to accept fake fake flash memory is sold by sellers in the United States. Buyers frauded by Asian eBay sellers show no mercy. Why the problem continues to grow on eBay in the United State are buyer naivety and denial.

Not all buyers the United States are fooled. They do not show favoritism to an American seller caught selling fakes. They understand the issue.

eBay may have a limitation of 45 days to initiate a claim. SOSFakeFlash issues alerts without a limitation of when the item(s) was sold. Can you report a seller especially one not on file, long after the fact? Yes, provided you send us information to support your claim. It is not about a “Witch Hunt”, it is about documenting the fraud on eBay for flash memory. If frauded buyers did not report, how would we be able to report eBay USA has reached second place?

Important tips for eBay buyers in the United States trying to wrestle a refund from fraudulent sellers in the USA. Advise the USA eBay seller that you will:

1. Contact the USA postal service and report mail fraud.
2. Contact the Attorney General in the eBay Seller’s state

Make sure you have your proof and testing results before you proceed. You will suddenly find the 45 day eBay claim window fading into unimportance. Keep your information and evidence.

Anyone who chooses to bid and buy flash memory on eBay should always capture the listing they won, as soon as they have won it. You can save it to disk, it might come in handy if the item turns out to be a fake. eBay will remove the listing information as soon as the seller is discovered and you will no longer be able to access the information. So preserve it! Keep the mailing envelope(s) you receive, do not throw them away until H2testw testing determines you bought genuine capacity. The seller addressing information matters.

If you preserve the information then a seller can be caught long after the fact. It is how mope4370 joined other eBay USA sellers in the database for flash memory fraud.

SOSFakeFlash Memory Warriors Against Fraud And Scam On eBay Notice 201201.

Posted by KittyFireFlash on January 7, 2012

Team captains, please contact your cell members. Instructions and details available at the alternate site. Phase IV against eBay fraud has been activated. News has been updated. Decrypt key, add your personal to the following:

^^%$#1976HGgbt52$

The schedule is aggressive. Ensure members meet the merge target deadlines.

Independent fighters, your efforts are important. To defeat eBay continuing in the scam of selling fake mp players, usb flash drives and memory cards your actions are necessary. The more geographical regions and countries participate the better the end result. Your efforts have not gone unnoticed. The action of every individual has impact.

Frauded buyers, we expect you to learn from your mistake, to take action and to participate. You have the most important voice. You should not revise your feedback for a refund. You should not accept “No Returns” from a seller. You should not accept “defective” as an excuse from a seller regardless of seller country. H2testw will reveal the truth to you. You should not accept any eBay 45 day claim window. Never use the postal system to return fake and counterfeit flash memory, it is a crime in most countries and both eBay and PayPal are aware of this. Should you have difficulty with a refund and if you were smart enough to fund with a credit card instead of your bank account, contact the credit card company immediately for a reversal of the purchase on the ground of fraud. Your credit card is more concerned about your purchasing safety than eBay or PayPal. Both promote “Buyer Protection”, but as four years of date demonstrate, nothing is further from the truth. You can raise awareness by warning your friend on FaceBook and seeding the internet with references to SOSFakeFlash to get information and help.

Reporting your eBay fake flash memory sellers using the Report A Fake tab is a key element to block the contagion of fake flash memory on eBay. It is a disease of hungry profit madness that seller, eBay and PayPal participate in. You are the victim, your data suffers the consequences.

Seller Zero FeedBack Scores And Flash Memory Selling On eBay, Do You Know The Risk? Will You Become The Next Victim Of Flash Memory Fake Capacity On eBay? Beware! Fraudulent Sellers Don’t Use Their Main eBay ID To Sell Fake Flash Memory! berthabk42t – bemusd4agm – ar6amu567jt – maratarthur – jturner252011 – maggiekwanchen – dezscloset eBay Flash Memory Sellers – Test Immediately To Verify Advertised Capacity. Please Avoid Fake Memory Products!

Posted by DragonDakel on November 21, 2011

If you buy usb flash drives, MP Players or memory cards from eBay sellers with low feedback scores or feedback currently recorded as (0) you are at serious risk of acquiring fake flash devices. As SOSFakeFlash, FakeMemorySentinel and the FrankenFlash Project increases the pressure to stop the sale of fake capacity flash memory on eBay, fraudulent sellers are fighting back. How do they fight back? They open new children ids, they don’t dare to risk their main id! eBay can track this practice, but you the buyer can not. Do not be naive enough to assume eBay will contact you for a fake flash memory seller or cancel your purchase and refund you. Instead they will remove the child id, suspend it and leave you and your purchase winging in the wind. Their hope is that you will not discover the truth and will even give up on filing a claim to get your money back.

FlashChipTutor provides excellent information on fakes, that site has a very good reference catalogue, available to both buyers and potential resellers.

FlashDriveFacts published this warning:

Changing Trends In The Sale Of Fake Memory On eBay For USB Flash Drives, Memory Cards And MP Players. SOSFakeFlash Advises Do Not Buy From eBay Sellers With Low FeedBack Scores. Avoid Sellers with Scores Under 300+ To Protect Yourself From Potential Fraud. Learn Why.

Eight months later, it is clear that eBay buyers have not understood the warning issued by FlashChipTutor. Instead people continue to race to bid and buy on listings from eBay sellers with low feedback scores.

Our site, FakeMemorySentinel does it’s best to issue warning on these new ids. The problem we and frauded buyers face? eBay reads the information we publish to suspend sellers and erase the evidence. This leads to a cover up for the scam…. Or does it? Recently SOSFakeFlash was contacted by a seller who was upset by the warnings we issued at our site. This naive seller explained how he had a main id and also children ids. The children ids sold fake flash memory and FakeMemorySentinel issued warnings. He pleaded for their removal. FakeMemorySentinel issues warnings, it captures eBay listings. If we capture an listing, it becomes internet history. If eBay removes the listing, we have it. Just like SOSFakeFlash, we don’t remove a listing or a capture just because a seller does not like it, especially when they are annoyed that we actually captured proof of what they listed. FakeMemorySentinel is not the real site eBay sellers have to worry about, it is SOSFakeFlash. If a seller is recorded here, the seller is confirmed for fraud, for selling fake flash memory. That record is permanent. The seller will end up on the lists. The fraudulent eBay seller will have an investigation raised. The fraudulent seller will have the items sold catalogued and exposed for a permanent internet record.

Our team can not stress enough how important it is to report your fake using the Report A Fake Tab to SOSFakeFlash. Unless you do, no investigation will be raised.

For seller id’s on eBay with low feedback scores, this is extremely important, the seller addressing information is especially necessary as it helps to detect the main parent eBay seller id. It appears in the interest of eBay victims, SOSFakeFlash will be far more aggressive in their alerts, more eBay sellers registered in countries outside of Asia are going to have their addressing information published. We at FakeMemorySentinel agree with this action. The best interest of frauded eBay buyers comes first. It is the only interest that matters. eBay has had many years to end the fraud, but they choose not to. Should an eBay seller be unhappy at being exposed or being made visible on the internet, they should not complain to the FrankenFlash projects, they should complain to eBay for not making very strick rules for listing usb flash drives, mp players or memory cards. If this had been done, they would not have been permitted to list the fraudulent items in the first place.

The responsibility remains on eBay’s shoulders. eBay is the first party to be held accountable.

FakeMemorySentinel will continue to serve as a warning site to alert buyers about suspect flash memory listings being sold on eBay. We will continue to support the efforts of SOSFakeFlash, if it was not for this site, we would have never learned the truth about the items we purchased on eBay, nor would we have been able to fight back for our refunds.

FakeMemorySentinel asks all eBay members to stay away from sellers who have low feedback scores for flash memory, most of these sellers are id’s trying to break through the wall we are building to protect buyers from becoming victims of fraud.

If you bought a flash memory item from any of these eBay sellers: berthabk42t – bemusd4agm – ar6amu567jt – maratarthur – jturner252011 – maggiekwanchen – dezscloset you are advised to test item(s) immediately for advertised capacity. Read: H2testw 1.4 – Gold Standard In Detecting USB Counterfeit Drives. You may have purchased a fake flash memory product.

If your memory item fails testing report immediately to SOSFakeFlash . If your eBay seller is deregistered from eBay, it is urgent you report in to SOSFakeFlash. If you do not, they will not be able to investigate and to record in their database to publish an offical alert listing all items sold. eBay is suspending fake flash memory sellers to avoid buyers leaving feedback or recording the truth.

Never use any flash memory item without testing for capacity. If you purchased a fake you could lose your files and data. Read: Why Is Fake Flash Memory So Dangerous?

Please see Validation Memory links for brand names and flash nand memory chip decoding. Reminder, Gb is Gigabits, not Gigabytes. 8 bits is 1 byte. You must divide by 8, if manufacturer lists size as Gb. Exercise care in disassembly of your item to decode.

Can You Find A Bargain For A Kingston DT310 DataTraveler Flash Drive On eBay From USA Seller? Would You Believe A Buy Now Price Of Only $47.99 US? The Myth Of “eBay Buyer Protection”. eBay Seller Flash Memory Cheap Prices Bargains Seller amazing_stanley2011 – Test Immediately To Verify Advertised Capacity. Please Avoid Fake Memory Products! Falso?

Posted by KittyFireFlash on October 21, 2011

Did you or do you want to buy a DT310 usb flash drive on eBay? Have you noticed you don’t find them for sale in a lot of retail outlets? Is that why you are considering buying one on eBay? Ask yourself why they are not for sale at local stores or why they are kept locked up in display cabinets. You won’t find them offered at the check out counter in the impulse display racks and for good reason. They are very expensive. Just like gold jewelry, DT310 DataTravelers go under the glass. You will have to call a salesperson to get out the keys to show you one.

There are still a lot of unbelievers out there who assume you can buy a DT310 cheap on eBay.

Do you know what happens to most of them? They become flash memory victims, unfortunate people who must learn a very painful lesson.

“If it is too good to be true, it usually is.”

This is the echo of so many people who report into SOSFakeFlash and who have made the shocking discovery that usb flash drives can be counterfeited or manipulated to lie about their real capacity.

Quite a few lose important files for good. After all, once the real capacity of the storage chip is exceeded there is no place for the file to go, except to byte heaven or byte hell, depending on your point of view.

There are readers at SOSFakeFlash who believe that frauded eBay members who purchased the fake memory and counterfeit DT310 DataTravelers deserve what they get, especially if they paid a ridiculous price. It is harsh. If you are a victim, you won’t like it being rubbed in. We at SOSFakeFlash know how you feel, after all, we were victims before you and also made the mistake.

A lot of buyers also learn another very painful lesson – they believed in eBay buyer protection, they actually thought eBay was sincere about protecting them! Buyers of DT310 counterfeits at false capacity are in for a shock. The most eBay will do, is remove the listing for a seller who engages in DT310 fraud. That only makes things worse for a victim, if they click on their won list to review the listing, it is no longer there. So who is eBay REALLY protecting? So now you know why SOSFakeFlash exists.

The DT310 fakes issue continues on eBay. Everyday there will be new listings. Everyday people will bid and buy for them. Everyday people who bought them on eBay once they arrive will begin to wonder why the DT310 Kingston DataTraveler usb flash drives fail. Then they will being the same journey members of the FrankenFlash Project did – search the internet for information and clues! The awakening will be painful.

Could eBay do something about it? Yes. You should read:

Can eBay Stop The Sale Of Fake And Counterfeit Memory? A Frauded Buyers Simple Insight To Solving The Problem For Fraudulent eBay Listings.

Does it sound like something hard for eBay to do? Of course not. So why have they not? Draw your own conclusions.

If you bought a DT310 usb flash drive on eBay we have lots of information for you to consult and use in this article.

If your sellers listings disappeared, you can still report to SOSFakeFlash. You can still fight your case and demand that eBay hand your money back, in fact you MUST! They have no excuses left. 9 years of permitting the fraud?

eBay Flash Memory Fraud Continues. 8 Years later, eBay Continues Cover Up For Fraudulent Asian Sellers. 8GB 16GB 32GB 64GB 128GB 256GB Advertised Capacity = 4GB Real Capacity Or Less

If you feel it is ok to be frauded or that eBay might collapse without your “donation” then don’t bother to fight or hold them accountable. It is your choice. SOSFakeFlash and other sites have been documenting just how large scale the fraud is. The purpose? To make it clear to you just how deeply they are involved. To let you know you are not the first one to suffer this horrible discovery or misfortune and to warn you, you will not be the last victim unless you decide to exercise your right to say “NO”!

There are many ways you can fight back:

How Are People Fighting Against Fake Memory MP Players, USB Flash Drives And Memory Cards? eBay And The Internet.

The four most important?

1) File your claim and refuse any eBay nonsense about a 45 day window, it is designed to make you give up.

2) Expose the fraud. Warn people you know using social media. Facebook remains the simplest and the most effective way to warn your friends about the issue and to stop them from your experience!

3) Warn other buyers for your seller or search out obvious fraudulent DT310 listings and report them to eBay or other internet sites as good examples of how eBay participates in the scam.

4) Discuss your experience at your work place. You would be amazed to learn how many of your colleagues do not know about the problem on eBay for flash memory. It’s a great lunch time topic and the news spreads like wild fire. Guess what your colleagues will talk about when they get home? It educates, it saves others from your experience. It helps people to become more aware and wiser too.

You might be tempted in frustration or anger to close your eBay account. Please do not. There are honest sellers on eBay. There are a lot of good items you can buy. The issue is in the flash memory categories. That is where the scam and fraud is. Do not punish other sellers who don’t sell these products, do not punish yourself from finding great items – in other categories. Just stay away from usb flash drives, mp players and memory cards. If you close your account, who really wins? eBay and the fake flash memory seller, not you. So avoid the obvious temptation, the easy way to deal with your outrage.

mbrunn03 eBay Fake Flash Memory Seller High Alert Devious- United States The Danger On eBay For Private Auctions And Flash Memory. Will You Be Frauded By An American Seller On eBay? Beware Of Listing Titles -> 32 GB Micro SD HC Memory Card US Seller. No Honest eBay Seller Will Use Private Auctions To Sell Flash Memory Cards.

Posted by KittyFireFlash on June 5, 2011

privateauctions-ebay mbrunn03 is an eBay seller of Counterfeit (Fake hacked – false capacity memory) memory cards. Registered in the United States, mbrunn03 has used private auction listings. This seller attempts to con buyers into believing that about 3% of flash memory cards are “defective” as a rule. Are all his buyers in the 3%? Flash memory cards undergo rigorous testing before they are released for packaging so 100% are not defective. Defective flash memory chips do not make it off the assembly line. One of the reasons flash memory is so expensive are the many quality tests chips are subjected too to ensure they are reliable. The quality testing is factored into the final retail price, natural and fair.

When a seller uses a private auction listing to sell flash memory it should warn you. No honest seller hides what he sells from other buyers. Private auctions are used almost exclusively by fake flash memory sellers who abuse the rules and intent for private auctions.

eBay Fighting Back – SOSFakeFlash

We are volunteers, nobody pays us. Like you, we have been victims on eBay. Most of us got our refunds. We could have disappeared into a new fake flash free life but we chose not to. Why? The answer is simple. You are reading this site. We knew there would be new victims. Somebody has to warn others. We are also disgusted by eBay groveling for pennies, protecting fraudulent sellers and allowing eBay members to be frauded for over eight years. Right now we are in phase III against eBay. In each phase we continue to turn up the heat. eBay refuses to change the policy for listing flash memory, they want the money from listing fees. If you research this site carefully, you will come to the same conclusion. You, the victims empower us to work on your behalf. eBay does not like this site, but eBay members who are victims of fake flash memory do.

eBay Fake Memory Seller Lists

SOSFakeFlash documents eBay seller id’s who have sold fake usb pen sticks, memory cards and mp players. The lists become a permanent record against a seller id. Should a seller attempt to rename the id (often done), SOSFakeFlash will issue a new alert and also update the lists to the new id. The recorded information in the databases is transferred to the new id. There is no escaping the long arm of SOSFakeFlash. eBay sellers who sold fake flash memory don’t get to tip toe into the night or escape their history of fraud.

These lists are often consulted by eBay buyers.

The lists provide a record eBay and fake flash memory sellers can not escape. No internet site can match the number of fraudulent eBay sellers on file with SOSFakeFlash. The purpose is to record eBay’s participation in fraud and to ensure there is a record.

The current lists are here: eBay Fake Flash Memory Seller Lists

These lists have an important feature, if you click on the seller id, you can access the negative and neutral feedback – quickly.

You will find in some cases no negative or neutral feedback for a seller listed. The reasons?

  • Buyers left positive feedback, then discovered they purchased a fake and sent in documenting evidence using the Report A Fake tab.
  • The seller was suspended by eBay, preventing buyers from leaving negative and neutral feedback.

Reporting sellers provides an opportunity to record a fraudulent seller, despite having left positive feedback or eBay suspending the seller in an attempt to hide how serious the problem is.

The eBay Fake Memory Seller Lists prevent any attempts to bury or hide the issue.

If you have exceeded your 45 day claim window, but found your seller on the lists, you should demand your refund from eBay and accept no excuses – even if you purchased 2 years ago! eBay very aware of the issue, they just want you to disappear or give up with their email robots. Don’t!

eBay Fake Flash Memory Counterfeit Rings

SOSFakeFlash actively engages in detecting counterfeit rings operating on eBay. The clues come from frauded buyers who report in using the report a fake tab.

As of December 2009, SOSFakeFlash has 44 counterfeit rings on file. The ring with the most eBay seller id’s? XU GANG with 24 eBay id’s.

The 3totrade counterfeit ring is special, belonging to the original Don of fake flash memory in the orient. Everyone was so curious about this ring it led to a covert visit to the address in China! This counterfeit ring is the reason SOSFakeFlash started an internet presence!

32B, XiaoFeng Building Address Fake Flash Memory Selling On eBay. On Site Visit To The Don Of Fake Flash In The Orient

Occasionally articles are published on the eBay id connections, their addresses, contact names and even email addresses. You can help build the connections by sending in your information to SOSFakeFlash. Sellers frequently change addresses, this is not a problem so long as frauded eBay members continue to report in. Often eBay sellers in their hurry to change addresses make serious mistakes, leading us to more fraudulent sellers!

Received an address in Chinese? Not a problem. You can copy paste into google translation. If it is printed on a label and you know someone with OCR software you can scan, pick up the characters and then paste into google translation. If you don’t have OCR software for a shipping custom label, find someone who reads Chinese and ask them to translate the address for you.

It’s important you all know we receive help and leaked information from Oriental people who are outraged and angry about hacked flash memory being sold. They are taking great personal risks in countries where law is not friendly to whistle blowers. They have our RESPECT!

In helping us to identify the counterfeit rings, you embarrass and shame eBay. You make it impossible for eBay to deny the fraud, how massive it is – millions of US dollars annually and you provide evidence that may well become useful in criminal prosecution. Flash memory fraud on eBay is highly organized, your information helps prove it!

Fake Flash Memory Seller Detection – FakeMemorySentinel
