128GB DT200 on ebay UK are too cheap to be genuine

leave a comment »

Seller pavhimself must have purchased these 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drives from one of the many fraudulent wholesalers in fakeflashland. No one could sell genuine ones at this price so these simply have to be counterfeits. Counterfeits trash files.

The seller may have no idea that the drives are fake – genuine ones have individual serial numbers that can be verified with Kingston -we suggest that pavhimself checks with Kingston and tries to get a refund from the supplier if (as expected) Kingston can’t verify the drives.

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.

Sony flash drives on ebay seem a bit on the cheap side

These seem a little on the cheap side which makes us wonder if these Sony Micro Vault flash drives could be counterfeit. There are many fraudulent wholesale outlets supplying counterfeit fake capacity flash memory and we wonder whether seller rododidi purchased from one of these.

We think these 32GB SD cards are fake capacity

coca-mesWe are pretty certain that the 32GB SD memory cards sold by coca-mes are fake capacity. Fake capacity cards cause your photos to become lost or corrupted after a while. Seems this seller also offers fake USB flash drives.

64GB Kingston flash drive on ebay seems too cheap to be genuine

leave a comment »

The strart price for this 64GB Kingston DataTraveler USB flash drive listed on ebay by jcart010 seems too low for the drive to be genuine. If we are wrong the buyer will be able to verify the serial number with Kingston.

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.
