zauqi1111

Seller zauqi1111 seems to be involved in dropshipping as the location of these counterfeit 64GB Kingston DataTraveler USB flash drives is given as Hong Kong. This means the seller will have had no chance of examining the merchandise and discovering that these are fakes that corrupt people’s 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 testing confirms you have purchased fake capacity flash memory on ebay.

gremlin2sDoes fake flash gremlin shuangrenjie0 hope to throw people off the scent by giving his or her location as Macau rather than China?

Well Macau is in China – so here we have yet another fraud ID operating out of China.

This 32GB flash drive is fake fake fakity fake and will corrupt users’ files. The highest capacity of genuine flash drive you can possibly buy for £10.98 is 8GB. A genuine 32GB drive costs a lot more than this to make.

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.

Seller in Australia lists suspect 128GB DT200 USB flash drives

$$$bargainsearch$$$

We very much doubt that the 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drives listed by $$$bargainsearch$$$ will prove to be genuine. If they are genuine they will have individual serial numbers which can be verified by Kingston. We don’t think they will verify these as we strongly suspect that they are counterfeit and fake capacity drives which will trash users’ files. Looking at the drive’s properties does not tell you anything as fakes are programmed to lie to the operating system.

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.

We are certain that the 32GB SD memory cards sold by powerlee8816888 will prove to be fake capacity as will the USB flash drives from this seller. Fakes trash files. This devious seller is now using private auctions to cover up fake flash sales. Never buy flash memory in private auctions – it is almost certain to be fake!

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.
