leave a comment »

We first posted about ukbargainstores on September 10th 2009. When we first posted about this seller we thought that ukbargainstores might be an innocent victim of a fraudulent supplier. Developments since then suggest that top rated ebay seller ukbargainstores is actually a determined fraudster, rather than a victim of fraud. Read the rest of this entry »

Job lots of counterfeit Kingston listed by ebayer in Australia

blingbling6

Seller blingbling6 (registered in Australia) has listed what we are certain are counterfeit 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 150 flash drives in job lots of 5. All flash drives of this type should have individual serial numbers which can be checked with Kingston to verify genuine drives. We are sure they will not verify these!

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.

Flash drives in this listing from UK seller shahzad81 are fake fake fakity fake! There is no such thing as a 120GB USB flash drive, period. They are simply not made in this capacity.

paseo88

Despite the very blurred picture used in listings by paseo88 (registered in Australia) we know enough about flash drives to tell you that there is not a genuine 128GB USB flash drive that looks like this. We wouldn’t touch these with a bargepole – they are fake fake fakity fake and will corrupt users’ files after a while.
