You want to buy an inexpensive usb flash drive on eBay, cheap? You trust in eBay buyer protection? Time to open your eyes to the scam that eBay permits. eBay Hong Kong powersellers are protected and buyers must pay the price. Consider the eBay Hong Kong seller, xway_powers.

What do you know about him?

On July 29, 2010 SOSFakeFlash published this confirmation on eBay seller xway_powers:

xway_powers was previously known as fiveway_powers. We published the warning at FakeMemorySentinel on April 2, 2010.

Shortly afterwards, fiveway_powers renamed the id to xway_powers and SOSFakeFlash issued a formal alert. Did this stop xway_powers from continuing to fraud? No. eBay did not stop this seller! xway_powers just hid for a little while and returned to list the exact same items again! This time offered a low bid price and very high shipping fees. There is nothing safe about buying flash memory on eBay.

If you bought a flash memory item from any of these eBay sellers 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?
