Room 1921, a place false capacity usb flash drives, mp players and memory cards slip into their mailing envelopes to begin their journey. Destination? All four corners of the globe. Mission? Destroy files and data. Objective? Earn large sums of money through fraud, ruin the reputation of eBay, destroy consumer confidence in flash memory based technology, tarnish the reputation of China.

SOSFakeFlash tracks fake flash sellers. With the help of victims, they gather information and begin to connect the dots. In this article we expose how different counterfeit rings are tied together and appear to point to a common source.

SOSFakeFlash refers to the master controller as the “Don Of Fake Flash In The Orient”.

Supporting articles are provided as reference. Learn more about this new counterfeit ring and SOSFakeFlash’s investigative efforts during the last year.

The problem of false capacity usb flash drives, mp players and memory cards being unleashed from the orient is not an accidental collection of fraudsters out to make a quick pound. Those involved know exactly what they are doing and how to get around eBay. While all groups in the FrankenFlash Project first look to the interests of victims, sharing the anger, frustration and disappointment with eBay for not addressing the issue, at times times there is a small twinge of sympathy.

These sellers in the Orient have skillfully neutered eBay – precious jewels removed and eBay none the wiser?

SOSFakeFlash is celebrating their first anniversary on the internet: The Fight Against False Capacity MP Players, Memory Cards, USB Memory Sticks Continues On The Internet – SOSFakeFlash Celebrates First Year Of Operation Assisting Victims . Despite efforts of victims to convince eBay to change the rules for listing and selling flash memory based technology, nothing has been done in the last 18 months of victim complaints.

Pleas to ban the sale of these items on eBay until a plan or policy to manage and combat the fraud are in place, have gone unheard. eBay employee’s assigned to combat fraud could learn a lot from SOSFakeFlash’s reports. Consumers considering purchases on eBay, may have second thoughts. Victims of these seller id’s may finally realize they are not battling an individual fake flash seller.

eBay employee’s concerned for their future, should quietly slip a copy of this report into all executive in mail baskets.
