This familiar 64GB USB flash drive listed on ebay by wuzhua8 is bound as usual to be fake capacity – fakes trash 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.

Fraudster changes ebay ID yet again to fool ebay members

with 2 comments

The ebay ID wangwang.great is a new one for known ebay fraudster 123456wowo123456 formerly known as mememao9898 who has defrauded a huge number ebayers with fake 16GB USB pens. Worse – eventually buyers will find files vanishing or being corrupted.

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.

Suspect 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 on ebay UK

leave a comment »

The buy it now price of the 64GB DT200 USB flash drives sold by update_127 seems too low for them to be genuine. We suspect that this seller bought from one of the many fraudulent wholesalers supplying counterfeit and fake capacity memory items that corrupt users’ files. Genuine 64GB Kingston flash drives have individual serial numbers which can be used to verify the drive is genuine. We don’t think that Kingston will verify these.

The seller may have no idea that there could be a problem with these because most ebay sellers do not realise the true cost of genuine brand name flash memory. We urge ebayers to do thorough research before buying such items to sell on ebay.

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.

4GB Sandisk USB flash drive in private listing one ebay Ireland

leave a comment »

If this 4GB Sandisk USB flash drive is genuine then why is seller mymemory111 using a private auction? Private auctions are not intended for this sort of item – only for high value items like houses or cars, or things like medication or sexy undies that people would rather keep private. This makes us wonder if it will turn out to be yet another counterfeit that will corrupt users’ files.

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.

Bendy figure flash drives may be fakes that trash files

leave a comment »

If ehappyseller2009 bought these bendy figure USB flash drives from one of the many wholsale outlets in China advertising on the Internet they are very likely to be fake capacity.

Fake capacity flash drives trash users’ files. We suggest ehappyseller2009 (registered on ebay Australia) tests them immediately with h2testw.

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.

If these Kingston flash drives are genuine seller may make a loss

leave a comment »

If the 16GB Kingston DataTraveler 100 USB flash drives listed on ebay Australia by seller jamesw4827 are genuine the seller is at risk of making a large loss. We wonder if the reason the seller feels able to afford to list with such a low start price is that they are cheap copies from one of the many fraudulent wholesalers out there. If this is the case then these will corrupt users’ files.

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