Why You Should Test Flash Memory Storage Before Using. Never Use A USB Flash Drive, Memory Card Or MP Player To Store Files Or Photos Before Testing The Actual Capacity To Avoid Data And File Loss.

Posted by KittyFireFlash on June 19, 2012

All flash memory should be tested for real capacity before using. Your best option remains the free to use software H2testw 1.4. SOSFakeFlash has promoted the use of H2testw for over five years. To understand why you should read: H2testw 1.4 – Gold Standard In Detecting USB Counterfeit Drives. Download links are provided, but you need to understand why you should use this software, so read first. The nice thing about H2testw is the report it can produce for you on your flash memory and it’s REAL capacity. If you are wise enough to use H2testw beforehand, you could avoid data and file loss if the chips are defective or manipulated. We call that ‘Fake Flash’. It is still very popular. You will find usb flash drives, memory cards and mp players being digitally altered to lie about their real size. Super sizing small flash storage chips is easy to do if you know how. Controller usb chips that are vunerable and easy to manipulate are used by counterfeiters all the time. Little cheap price for flash memory leads to little small storage flash memory chips – your illusion satisfied, your data lost.

In North America, flash memory prices in retail stores continue to drop! It is a dream come true. Almost risk free, safe. Yes, buying memory cards, mp players and usb flash drives are really cheap in retail chain stores. You won’t find 256GB flash drives very often, or even 128GB flash drives. They will not be in dump bins or on display racks, they will be under lock and key. Why? Because 128GB and 256GB is still very expensive.

The United States usually has the cheapest discounts for flash memory in retail stores, but they are getting cheap in Canada too!

At Staples in Canada recent prices?

a. Lexar 32GB TwistTurn USB Flash Drive – $19.98
b. SanDisk 32GB Extreme SDHC UHS-I Card (Class 10) – $69.96
c. Lexar 32GB SDHC Card (Class 4) – $19.92
d. Staples Relay 16GB MicroSDHC Card with SD Adapter – $24.90 (regular price, not on sale)

Can internet sites like eBay compete, offer the same low prices as retail stores for usb flash drives, memory cards or MP Players? Almost always, NEVER! Retail stores use their power to buy hugh qualities, that is how they get their special discounts. Retail stores only source their purchases for flash memory from authorized resellers or buy direct from the manufacturers. So the chance of them buying fakes or counterfeit flash memory is almost zero. Can eBay resellers say the same? If you don’t believe us, you need to research SOSFakeFlash, go to Published, hit Ctrl End on your keyboard to get to the first articles we published, work your way back. Then decide. If you think the problem is over, visit FakeMemorySentinel to see the most recent warning on internet sellers, especially on eBay.

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.

If you need help and information on eBay read:

How An eBay Seller Accidentally Fell Into The Trap Of Selling Fake 32GB Micro Memory Cards On eBay But Discovered In Time! A Personal Story. eBay Buyer Suspicions, Internet Research Did The Rest.

Posted by KittyFireFlash on March 3, 2011

How do honest eBay sellers get caught up in selling fake memory on eBay? The consequences can destroy a sellers reputation for good. SOSFakeFlash routinely publishes eBay sellers caught selling fake usb flash drives, memory cards and mp players. It is done in the interest of buyers at risk for loosing their data and money, to prevent the fraud on eBay escalating even further.

Some assume we delight in publishing sellers. The truth is, we don’t. SOSFakeFlash has published so many alerts, it is difficult for readers to know that SOSFakeFlash was co-founded. It was founded by frauded eBay buyers and by eBay sellers who accidentally sold fake flash memory. The rules were set by the sellers not by the buyers. The sellers are in the best position to judge their peers.

One of the earliest articles published: eBay Sellers Can Be Victims – How Does This Happen?

A lot of eBay sellers actively choose to engage in fraud, purposely scamming buyers with fake usb flash drives, memory cards and mp players, but not all. Most who willfully sell fakes are sellers registered in Asia on eBay but this is changing as Asian sellers are under increasing scrutiny.

Quite a few eBay sellers do not research their product for the real costs, instead they research what is selling “Hot” on eBay. It’s not unusual, but where flash memory items are concerned it can have horrible consequences for a seller. SOSFakeFlash was forced to introduce a zero tolerance policy as the number of listings and sellers offering fakes steadily increased and still increases.

While SOSFakeFlash must report, other sites in the FrankenFlash project attempt to publish articles and warnings to increase awareness on fake flash memory for both buyers (consumers) and potential resellers. Everyone’s help is needed.

Recently an eBay seller contacted SOSFakeFlash to tell their personal story, how they made a serious error and how it happened. We don’t know who the seller is, nor do we want to know. What matters is that the seller took the time to document how it happened and what they did when they discovered the truth. It goes without saying the seller demonstrated integrity, the spirit of the early founders of SOSFakeFlash and also how eBay sellers should behave.

We researched the story and have included graphic images as the url references will soon disappear from the internet. The story is published as is for you to read unedited.


I just thought i would drop you an email about my recent experience….

I have relatively recently started selling on ebay and happened to come across ……

membeuk Listing

and this

unlockurfone Listing

and this


Item sold was:


The first chap sold 44 units in one day so i decided to investigate further, thinking i had found a great selling opportunity.

What i found on AliExspress was this…

Free shipping oem 32gb Micro sd card

lily yi's store

I placed an order. I HONESTLY thought that it was genuine because others are selling at low prices too 😦 I started an ebay advert, selling these at £25 on pre-order. I messaged all my buyers to check that they understood i was waiting for stock. I sold 34 in less than 24 hours!!

However, a few people contacted me for assurances re authenticity and i started to get suspicious. I went for online chat with my supplier who when they found out i had selected DHL as the carrier, INSISTED i cancel my order. I was confused as i had paid for DHL but they wanted to use EMS.

Eventually, they confessed, “our goods are copies and DHL are strict and will seize the goods !! ” They went on to say i could re-order and select EMS and then i would be safe!!!

I was and still am , absolutely horrified, completely mortified and yes, embarrassed 😦 I contacted every buyer , with a lengthy apology, cancelled all the 34 transactions and refunded all the money.

I cannot believe this goes on and that not only are these products fake, but also not the advertised capacity either !! Really, i am shocked at what ive since learnt !! Shocked and disgusted 😦

Hope this is useful to you

Seller chosen name withheld by SOSFakeFlash to protect seller privacy.

This seller was lucky. eBay buyers are demonstrating wariness on eBay for buying flash memory. In contacting the seller, the seller exercised good judgment and began to research. Buyers helped a seller from frauding others and to avoid selling fake memory on eBay.

This eBay seller learned a difficult lesson but showed what a good, honest and responsible eBay seller does. It is the spirit many of us old timers on eBay knew and want to see return to eBay! It is what made eBay once, long ago… a great place to shop! We want you to experience what we once knew.

SOSFakeFlash continues to try and protect eBay members from fake flash memory purchases. eBay on the other hand, continues to NOT PROTECT YOU! The sad fact is, eBay flash memory clean up occurs because of members, not because of eBay. If you don’t want to believe us, begin researching this site and how many sellers we have been forced to publish since 2008. Then decide.

You can judge a seller by their actions. If they claim ignorance and try to convince you the item is “faulty” or “defective” or threaten or attempt to blackmail you into leaving positive feedback or revising your feedback, you have a fraudulent seller on your hands.

We remind you to test your items for true capacity with the free programme, H2testw and carefully read:

H2testw 1.4 – Gold Standard In Detecting USB Counterfeit Drives

to understand more about the programme before you use it. If you purchased a brand name, ensure you perform a validation at the brand site too.

Posted by KittyFireFlash on December 5, 2010

eBay has permitted the sale of fake flash memory products: usb flash drives, mp players and memory cards for over eight years. In spring 2008 a group of frauded eBay buyers began to fight back, they contacted other members to warn. They contacted eBay too and protested. eBay refused to listen. In quite a few cases, the people who warned were persecuted and suspended by eBay! Odd behavior for eBay especially as they promote “Buyer Protection”. So these early Fake Flash Angels took their message to the internet. The first site, SOSFakeFlash, began publishing in August 2008.

SOSFakeFlash is announcing Phase III for Operation Fake Flash Storm Against eBay. You the reader and frauded buyers can use Social media now to fight back and warn others! You can share on Facebook, StumbleUpon, Digg, Reddit and Email. You can leverage the internet to promote awareness, to protest and fight back! Want to learn how? Read the rest of this entry »

eBay Discussion Board And Forums For Fake Flash Memory. eBay Does Not Promote Transparency. There Is No Such Thing As Honest Dialogue With eBay!

Posted by KittyFireFlash on December 2, 2010

EBayOnFakeFlashAngelsIf you believe eBay is honest, or promotes an open dialogue on the issue of fake flash memory items: usb flash drives, mp players or memory cards, you are sadly mistaken.

You can not hope to voice an honest opinion on eBay. You can expect to receive a nasty warning or threat from eBay if you attempt to speak truthfully about fake mp players, memory cards or usb flash drives.

You can not expect eBay to understand the meaning of the word, “Transparency”. eBay needs the revenue from these fraudulent sellers. They want it, big time. If eBay was sincere they would have addressed the problem a long time ago.

cnwbshop10 aka andybin88 Ebay Fake Flash Memory Seller Id Change. High Alert! Back To Fraud Again!

Posted by KittyFireFlash on August 3, 2010

cnwbshop10 eBay seller has a history of fraud on eBay selling false capacity MP Players. cnwbshop10 renamed his id from andybin88. SOSFakeFlash has 27+ documented fakes on file. SOSFakeFlash issued an alert in May 2009 andybin88 Ebay Fake Flash Seller Alert – China. eBay members stopped him from selling fake mp players.

Recently FakeMemorySentinel published:cnwbshop10 eBay Flash Memory Seller China – Test Immediately!. There was something very odd about the listing and SOSFakeFlash was contacted to investigate. Sure enough, it was not a new seller but an old one already on file. We would not have been able to make the connection, if it wasn’t for frauded buyers reporting in with their information and clues to SOSFakeFlash.

eBay smart, but fake flash memory seller smarter.

They know how to evade buyers, eBay and try to reinvent themselves when caught by SOSFakeFlash. It is one of the reasons we collect a lot of information and have databases. Databases can be searched an interogated to look for patterns, clues and connections.

We track and trace known eBay fake flash memory sellers over time. If they change their name we can catch them with your completed information. If they try to start up under a new id, we can connect the dot’s and trace them, often to major counterfeit rings operating and abusing eBay and frauding members.

As far as victims and SOSFakeFlash are concerned, there is no eBay Fake Flash Memory Seller Protection Program. Correct behavior is to contact all buyers, to refund in full and to apologize for the harm that has been caused.

So what has cnwbshop10 aka andybin88 been selling?

2242 2245 2249
2241 1

SOSFakeFlash does not forget YOU, the victims of eBay fake flash memory sellers. That is why we have databases and why we ask you to report in using the Report a Fake Tab.
