Carefully built gremlin ID launches fake flash career on ebay

with one comment


Looks like minghua88fa268 is an ID our fraudster friends in China are hoping to hang on to for a bit longer than some of those set up this year.

A range of flash drives have been listed under this ID. We think anything from this seller will prove fake capacity and of course the Kingston DataTraveler 150 drives will also be counterfeit.

The serial numbers for DataTraveler 150’s can be checked with Kingston. We are certain they will not be confirmed as genuine.

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.

  1. minghua88fa268 is probably said gremlin.
    But did horribly in one that I fell for.
    The computer sees it as unformatted and cannot format it. Thus making it useless.
