Truth About Flash Drive Costs – The Grading System for Chips

Posted by KittyFireFlash on March 23, 2009

SOSFakeFlash invites readers to learn about the real costs for flash drive chips and the grading system used in manufacturing. Many victims find it hard to believe they have been scammed with a fake or false capacity usb flash drive, MP Player or Memory card. Often when they open the device and see a brand name stamp on a chip they believe it to be real, until they contact the brand name. Those who work on the FrankenFlash Project didn’t know the true costs or about the grading system – that is how we all fall into the fake flash pit! Please read:

You might not like what you find, but the truth is important. Spread the word to other sites and forums, it is time this fake flash plague stops. Besides reprogramming small chips to lie to operating system, sellers are offering crazy sizes of 120GB, 128GB, 240GB, 250GB, 360GB, 500GB, 512GB. The only way this can stop for people to be come aware! No buyers, then no sellers. The law of supply and demand. Lets turn off the fake flash tap.

What Is It That eBay Sellers of Fake Flash Devices Using Private Auctions Just Don’t Understand?

Posted by KittyFireFlash on January 22, 2009

It is no secret that eBay is NOT the place to buy flash devices such as usb flash drives, memory cards or MP Players. There are genuine sellers of these items on eBay but they are few and hard to find -buried under the cheap and not so cheap fake flash heap. The traffic in counterfeit and fake (flash capacity) has been around for a long time on eBay, old eBay members say it dates back to 2003 but most internet evidence starts appearing in 2005.

eBay Fake Flash sellers come and go. The most recent trend is to use Private Auctions so that there is no evidence of what was purchased. This is against the intent eBay had for the use of such listing. Like other fake flash sellers they do get found out. But these sellers add to their crimes when they are caught by a member. SOSFakeFlash has seen this repeatedly in eight months of investigating.

Seeing it is believing it. Here is one of the most obvious and glaring examples.
