Fake SD Flash Seller On eBay

I’ve heard plenty of stories about fake flash sellers on eBay.  Typically we see counterfeits with crooks changing the VendorID and ProductID of an ultra cheap brand to something premium for USB sticks [say a Sony MicroVault] but the thieves are also getting into SDHC cards, SD, CF and other media types.

What is amazing, is the willingness of these crooks to make good and show their good will towards a “bad situation” while all the while sticking it to you.
I recently found a website called SOSFakeFlash which documents many of these situations.
Take a quick read – it’s interesting to see what these crooks are up to – but at the same time know this:
  • Don’t buy product where an eBay user has negative feedback – no matter how good the price.
  • Be extra careful if the seller is outside the US.
  • Look out for the seller name of fengfeng_joy2008 – he’s a crook.
