These seem to be fake flash drives on ebay Canada

leave a comment »

mexoner685653

Every flash drive we have come across with a shiny sticker showing the capacity like these from seller mexoner685653 has proved to be fake capacity. Fake capacity drives trash your files. Although this seller seems to be registered in Canada we suspect that this listing is not from a native Canadian – it has the hallmarks of Chinese fraud gangs.

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.

Yet another ebay gremlin with the fraudsters’ favourite

leave a comment »

perfect1230

The flash drive listed by perfect1230 is the fraudsters’ favourite flash drive – easy to program to any fake capacity they like. You cannot buy genuine 64GB flash drives for this price – all you will get is a fake that will trash your files.

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.

Seller on ebay Australia auctions suspect 64GB Kingston DT150

We doubt very much that seller pillayh786 is correct in thinking that these are genuine 64GB Kingston DataTraveler USB flash drives – we suggest the seller checks serial numbers with Kingston before dispatching them to customers as we think they may well be counterfeit.

Counterfeits are fake capacity and trash users’ files after a while. We advise everyone to test all flash memory with the free program h2testw.

Report in to SOSFakeFlash if your testing confirms you have a false capacity device.

Ebay seller e_waytoshop selling suspect 1& 2GB flash drives

with 3 comments

The 1 and 2GB flash drives from e_waytoshop look extremely suspect to fightflashfraud – every drive in this packaging we tested was fake.

Seller e_waytoshop has been offering these on ebay for months – we hate to think how many of them have been sold.

We advise everyone to test all flash memory with the free program h2testw.

Report in to SOSFakeFlash if testing confirms you have a false capacity device.
