UK ebay member sells suspect 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 150

with 5 comments

r_s_s_80

This 64GB flash drive seems to have sold rather too cheaply for the seller to make anything except a loss. Seller r_s_s_80 is now offering them for £50 on buy it now – still too cheap so we think they are counterfeit.

Buyers should check their serial numbers with Kingston – we don’t think the company will verify these as genuine. If we are correct in thinking they are counterfeit they will also be fake capacity and cause files to be lost and corrupted.

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.

Are these memory cards sold by UK seller ijtdirectltd fake? Feedback for this UK seller seems to indicate that they may be. As usual we strongly advise ebayers to test all flash memory with the free program h2testw.

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

This flash drive on ebay is fake – there is no such Sony flash drive!

This flash drive is not 64GB and not made by Sony. It is counterfeit and fake capacity. Seller kevinmicroi has obviously been on a shopping trip to fake flash land. 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.

UPDATE 09 September:
The seller has now lowered the price to 40 euros. Let’s hope he doesn’t have any more success selling his fakes at the lower price.

gremlin2sAnother young gremlin from China is boldly offering you the chance to lose lots of data with two models of fake capacity 64GB flash drives – the one shown above and the fraudsters’ favourite leather model.

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

These 32GB Lexar flash drives on ebay seem awfully cheap

with one comment

princekechy

The 32GB Lexar flash drives listed on ebay by UK seller princekechy seem suspiciously cheap to us – almost half what you would pay buying one direct from Lexar. The profit margins on flash memory are not 50% so we suspect these may well be counterfeits purchased from a fraudulent supplier. If they are counterfeit they will also be fake capacity.

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

gremlin2sWe think the flash memory items sold by atttshop (SD cards and MP players) will prove to be fake capacity. As usual we strongly advise ebayers to test all flash memory with the free program h2testw.
