Yogi’s Fake 32GB MP Player From kinhome88 eBay Fake Flash Memory Seller – Charger Blows Up

Posted by KittyFireFlash on October 3, 2009

Buying a false capacity MP3 MP4 Player on eBay happens all the time. SOSFakeFlash is also receiving reports that these items often have a dangerous wall charger too – they “blow up” and can lead to electrical fires!

On June 25, 2009 SOSFakeFlash Published: kinhome88 Ebay Fake Flash Seller Alert – China

You should read the email from the kinhome88 in that alert! It may explain why he has been able to continue frauding through the summer of 2009 and continues unchallenged in the Fall of 2009. kinhome88 now also offers those fake usb memory flash pen drives SOSFakeFlash has seen a few too many times.

eBay buyer victim “Yogi” bought this 32GB Touch Screen MP3 MP4 Player from kinhome88:


Yogi provided the following listing description from kinhome88:


32GB Touch Screen MP3 MP4 Player
USB Data & Power Supply Cable
High Quality Earphone
USB Wall Charger (Free Gift!!!)

Yogi said:

Received a Wall Charger which BLEW up !See picture

Yogi Observed:

High Quality Earphone….it’s subjective….

The 32GB player with 2,8 inch screen….After putting more than 2 GB on the memory the problems start to arise. corupt files etc.
Because of the site.. I decided to open the MP4 player. It has a Samsung memory chip :


The Hardware chip is:
ANYKA AK3631LQ14402

SOSFakeFlash had a lot of difficultly trying to find this the memory chip at Samsung: K4S281632C-TC1L when found, the serial was for SDRAM and was an EOL product (end of life). Very confusing. The investigators have no idea what to make of this. An SDRAM flash memory chip being used in an MP Player? Or was it a counterfeit nand memory chip, using a legal serial number from Samsung? Or was this chip “converted” to be used in low quality MP Players because it was an EOL memory chip? At the moment no one really knows.

Yogi on testing the capacity:

Output of H2Test 1.4.. after completing the writing of the 32 GB and the verify starts it complained about errors and it/… crashed.
Because the writing of 32 Gb takes so very long I didn’t do the test again.

Yogi has filed a claim with paypal as do many eBay victims.

Yogi’s false capacity MP Player, reveals two additional facts buyers need to be aware of:

1) Wrong storage memory chips being used, possibility of counterfeit knock offs or recycled chips that should not be used in MP Players.

2) Wall chargers that are an electrical hazard. Yogi’s MP Player was damaged as a result. Wall chargers that are sub standard and not properly certified could damage your electrical outlet, MP Player and possibly start a fire in your home.

In hunting for unrealistic bargains on eBay you could end up with much more than a false capacity memory item.

Meanwhile kinhome88 continues to fraud and SOSFakeFlash sees little evidence of buyers attempting to contact and warn others who bought from this seller. As a result, kinhome88 will to earn and to sell fake memory items to unsuspecting eBay members.

If you feel this is wrong, lend a helping hand, warn buyers of kinhome88.
