Another ebay fraudster with fake 64GB USB flash drives

leave a comment »

gremlin2sThis 64GB USB flash drive sold by ebay gremlin tian2374 is fake capacity and will trash the buyer’s files after a while. You cannot manufacture a genuine 64GB drive for this price let alone sell it on ebay!

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.

Looks like another fake flash seller on ebay

gremlin2sWe think ceasoherer is yet another ebay gremlin from China selling fake flash memory. We think it is highly unlikely that these 32GB SD cards actually have anywhere near this capacity and think the same will go for the USB flash drives from this seller. Fakes trash files.

Another fraudster listing the favourite fake flash drive on ebay

leave a comment »

This leather-type flash drive listed on ebay by b.a.t.t.e.r.y is not 64GB and it wasn’t made in Japan – it is fake capacity and will corrupt users’ files. As usual we strongly advise ebayers to test all flash memory with the free program h2testw.

Suspect 32GB Maxflash USB flash drives on ebay Germany

with one comment

We looked on the Maxflash website and it appears that this model of flash drive is only made in capacities of up to 16GB. This leads us to think that the flash drives listed by phone-palace are counterfeit and fake capacity. If we are right this seller bought from one of the many fraudulent wholesale outlets selling fakes.

As usual we strongly advise ebayers to test all flash memory with the free program h2testw.

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

Member in Australia re-sells fake flash bought on ebay

Seller dgbr09 listed this fake USB flash drive for sale. This item was purchased from known fraudster mamaseller2009 on November 19th for five dollars less than the start price in this auction. The seller seems to be buying up fakes and re-selling them. The seller may not have realised that what he or she is selling here is a fake that will corrupt users’ files.

As usual we strongly advise ebayers to test all flash memory with the free program h2testw.

Fake 64GB USB flash drive listed on ebay by seller in Taiwan

leave a comment »

It costs more to manufacture a genuine 64GB USB flash drive than wen9082 is charging for these. This leads us to the inevitable conclusion that they are fakes that will trash users’ 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.

Looks like yet another ebay member selling counterfeit Kingston

leave a comment »

We doubt very much whether the Kingston flash drives listed on ebay by seller allerhand0808 (registered in Germany) will prove to be genuine.

We think this is yet another ebay member who bought from a fraudulent supplier selling counterfeit, fake capacity memory items that trash users’ data.

The seller may be unaware that these are likely to be fakes.

As usual we strongly advise ebayers to test all flash memory with the free program h2testw.
