ebay member in Canada obviously didn’t look at Kingston’s site

leave a comment »

If cupromo had looked at the Kingston website then this seller would have known that what the supplier of these offered was counterfeit and fake capacity as this model of flash drive is not made in 128GB.

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.

We don’t think this 16GB flash drive was made by Sony

with one comment

We could find no trace of this model of 16GB flash drive on Sony’s web site so we think that these flash drives from flying-bee2009 are counterfeit and fake capacity. In fact we think any flash memory item sold by ebay member flying-bee2009 will be a fake that trashes users’ files.

The 128GB flash drives sold by drl-styling (registered in Germany) is fake and will corrupt users’ files, the same goes for the 64GB version of the drive.

Seller in Canada auctions 128GB DT200 flash drives on ebay at a loss?

leave a comment »

If this seller’s 128GB Kingston DataTraveler USB flash drives are genuine the seller has made a loss on sales. We think it more likely that they are counterfeits purchased from one of the many fraudulent wholesalers. A lot of ebay sellers don’t know the true cost of flash memory and fall into the trap of selling fakes because they didn’t do their research.

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

ebay seller in Germany with very suspect private auctions

leave a comment »

We think the 64GB USB flash drives sold by papierkugel2009 are fakes that will corrupt users’ files. The use of private auctions make us suspect that the seller may be aware of this. 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.

ebay seller in Korea lists fake 32GB Sony USB flash drive

leave a comment »

Sony do not make 32GB USB flash drives. This flash drive listed by mbvc527 are counterfeit and fake capacity. The seller may not be aware that they are fake – many ebayers buy from fraudulent wholesalers and do not realise. We advise sellers to do their research to find out what is really available before buying to re-sell on ebay and to test any flash memory they buy with h2testw.

Fake capacity flash drives listed in private ebay sale by UK member

leave a comment »

This model of flash drive always proves to be fake capacity when sold as anything over 4GB. The fact that cwmwitch2009 is using a private buy it now listing makes us wonder if this seller is aware they are fake. As usual we strongly advise ebayers to test all flash memory with the free program h2testw.
