UK ebayer with counterfeit 64GB Kingston DatTraveler drives

chippy!1234567890

If UK seller chippy!1234567890 thinks these 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 150 drives are genuine then why is there no mention of the Kingston name in the listing? After all the Kingston name is a selling point! Does this mean that the seller is aware that these are fakes that will corrupt buyers’ data? Read the rest of this entry »

ooostore.123

Looks like ooostore.123 is another ID belonging to the Singapore based singjapan fake flash fraud gang. 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.

We think these 32GB flash drives sold on ebay by yoni_zadok will prove to be fake capacity and will corrupt users’ files. We think that this seller purchased these from one of the many fraudulent wholesalers supplying fake flash. The seller may have no idea that there is such a thing as a fake flash drive.

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 testing confirms you have purchased fake capacity flash memory on ebay.

UK ebay member sells fake 64GB Kingston flash drive

UK seller memory_*_man listed a 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 101 flash drive on ebay. It is a counterfeit, fake capacity drive as this model is not made in 64GB capacity.
memory_man_close We decided to zoom in and capture a bit more detail of the picture of this drive as we were curious about what it would show. Sure enough, it is marked as 64GB although this model was never produced in this capacity.

Item number 150380738258 seems to be the only one of these listed by memory_*_man and the seller may not be aware it is not genuine.

However, this seller lists a lot of Sony PRO DUO memory cards – so if memory_*_man was unaware this was fake he may be unaware that the memory cards could well be fakes too.

We strongly suggest that memory_*_man tests all flash memory with h2testw.

The seller could well end up with angry customers if he has sold counterfeit and fake capacity items which corrupt users’ files. At least if he tests he can keep his good name by contacting buyers and offering them refunds if their items turn out to be fakes.

A fake capacity flash memory item eventually corrupts users’ data when the true capacity is exceeded as there is nowhere for the data to go. 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.
