We think that this ebayer’s flash drives are likely to be fake

with 7 comments

We think that flash drives from ebay seller clemface1980 will prove to be fake capacity. Fake capacity drives lead to data loss and corruption.

We advise everyone who buys flash memory items to test them with the free program h2testw irrespective of where they were purchased – otherwise you run the risk of data loss and corruption.

Report your fake if testing confirms you have purchased fake capacity flash memory on ebay.

Datatraveler 150 in private ebay sale

leave a comment »

a1aelectronics

Seller a1aelectronics (registered in the USA) is using private sales for 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 150 flash drives. We think the flash drives from this seller are likely to be counterfeit and fake capacity. Buyers should check serial numbers with Kingston – if they are genuine (which we very much doubt) Kingston will be able to verify this.

As usual we strongly advise ebayers to test all flash memory with the free program h2testw.

Report in to SOSFakeFlash if your testing confirms you have a false capacity device.

This flash drive offered fastship-seller is the fraudsters’ favourite – easily programmed to any fake capacity. Anyone buying one will eventually suffer data loss and corruption. As usual we strongly advise ebayers to test all flash memory with the free program h2testw.

We consider it highly unlikely that the 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 150 flash drives listed at auction on ebay by cosgrove.tyler91 (a member registered in Canada) will prove to be genuine. Buyers should check serial numbers with Kingston – we don’t think they will verify them as genuine.

As usual we strongly advise ebayers to test all flash memory with the free program h2testw.

The use of private listings makes us suspect that the 64GB flash drives listed here by nibbuns****celebrityasos could be fake capacity. As usual we strongly advise ebayers to test all flash memory with the free program h2testw.

Fraudsters’ favourite flash drive in private ebay auction

leave a comment »

ffyyyww88

New ebay seller ffyyyww88 registered in China is using a private auction to sell the fraudsters’ favourite flash drive. This is a way of hiding what buyers have purchased to maximumise the number of ebayers that can be defrauded before the seller can be suspended by ebay.

As usual we strongly advise ebayers to test all flash memory with the free program h2testw.

We think these 64GB DataTraveler listed on ebay by msuhhail might be counterfeit. Buyers should check the serial numbers with Kingston, if they are genuine Kingston will be able to verify this.
