"Until I read your blog entries I did not know that there are fake stealth phones. Last year I've bought one on eBay (from an UK seller), and the decision was made only because of the low price of the phone. After a week, at my request the Police has confirmed that my phone was being intercepted for a month because of one of my clients. I will not go into details, not important for this case.
However, the real problem is this: at that time, my so called "stealth phone" has not triggered any taping warnings. Not even once. I've got the confirmation that my phone was tapped with an IMSI Catcher.
Personally, I have not been affected by this situation. But I would like that other fake stealth phone users to learn that the phones does not work as sellers describe on eBay, the danger arising from this being a major one. Moreover, I have noticed that the seller from whom I bought the phone, has sold until now (Jan.2015) a pretty large number of fakes: over 90 devices.
For this reason I have sent you some pictures of the label stuck on the back of the phone, which identify a fake stealth phone. It's a different kind of label than you previously presented, being probably the newer type.
You may be wondering what I did further. Well, I have contacted the scammer, demanding explanations about the phone malfunction. First (and last, by the way) he replied nonchalantly that he have no idea about how interception work and how phones get tapped, being a simple seller. All this, despite the fact that his eBay page contain some explanations about cell phone interception. This was the only "customer service" received from this seller. Since then he did not answer my messages. Of course, I've got no reply when I have requested a refund because the "stealth phone" that he sold to me is a fake one.
I hope that my bad experience regarding cheap stealth phones will be a lesson for those who want to buy a phone at low price. And urge all those who have already done so, to immediately request a refund from the seller.
I will also keep in mind your advice, and another time I'll buy a genuine stealth phone from true manufacturers. By the way, I've bought mine from a repair shop guy... Not a smart idea, huh?"
