masterticketz

These 64GB Kingston DataTraveler flash drives sold by masterticketz are undoubtedly counterfeit and fake capacity. It is impossible to make a genuine 64GB flash drive for the price these are selling at let alone sell them for this price on ebay. Read the rest of this entry »

Seller on ebay Australia with suspect 128GB DT200 flash drives

with 7 comments

We are fairly certain that the 128GB DataTraveler USB flash drives sold by jackrang2009 will prove to be counterfeit (not made by Kingston) and fake capacity – causing 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 in to SOSFakeFlash if your testing confirms you have purchased a false capacity device on ebay

Another baby gremlin selling the fraudsters’ favourite on ebay

gremlin2sFeels a bit like every time you log into ebay there’s another gremlin listing the fraudster’s favourite!

As ever we can say that without doubt the leather USB flash drive shown in this listing from fuhua88982009 will be nothing like 16GB. It is likely to corrupt any data saved on it after (probably) about 1.7GB or (less likely) about 3.5-3.7GB.

These flash drives are simply not safe to use – take it from someone who has a few that were supplied by the fraud gangs in China who spawn these gremlins!

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.

You cannot buy genuine 16GB USB flash drives for this price

ganniniang1

gremlin2sSeems that ganniniang1 is a new gremlin ID set up by a familiar fraud gang to sell fake flash drives on ebay. You cannot buy a genuine 16GB flash drive for this price – all you will get is a fake which will cause your files to be lost or 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.

Looks like yet another baby gremlin from China on ebay

gremlin2sLooks like another disposable baby gremlin sent on fakeflash sales duty by our fraudster friends in China with no feedback to act as a buffer against the inevitible negative comments.

We are sure that the flash drives sold by ssdhfiu_d will prove to be fake capacity. 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.

Another gremlin on ebay selling classic fake flash drives

leave a comment »

miss_wong88

gremlin2sSeller miss_wong88 quite rightly describes this supposedly 32GB flash drive as “classic” – it is a classic fake that has been sold on ebay by fraudsters for years!

This has been the fraudsters’ favourite flash drive for reprogramming from a small capacity (usually 4GB at most) to any fake capacity the fraudster chooses. Read the rest of this entry »
