burrc-2008

We think the 16GB Sandisk USB flash drives (and the PNY ones) sold by burrc-2008 on ebay USA are counterfeit and fake capacity, no doubt the seller bought them from one of the many fraudulent suppliers in the far east. Read the rest of this entry »

fdgdfg67

Seller fdgdfg67 (based in China) is a baby gremlin selling the fraudster’s favourite flash drive – the black leather model shown above. This seller hopes to inspire confidence by pretending to be in Ireland.

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.

Suspect 128GB Kingston DT200 flash drives sold on ebay

with one comment

5182chang

Seller 5182chang is not currently listing anything for sale but it seems that this ebay member may have sold at least 20 counterfeit (and therefore fake capacity) 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drives on ebay USA. Serial numbers for genuine flash drives of this type can easily be verified with Kingston – however a comment from a buyer suggests that the flash drives from this seller were fakes.

Seller on ebay Canada with supect 256GB DT200 flash drives

clicnbuy09

We doubt very much that these 256GB Kingston DataTraveler flash drives are genuine – we think they are counterfeits. It seems that the wholesaler who supplied clicnbuy09 may be one of the many fraudulent suppliers in the far east. If these are genunine (highly unlikely) the serial numbers can be verified with Kingston. We suggest the seller contacts Kingston to check them.

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.
