We think these 64GB Kingston DT150 USB drives are counterfeits

leave a comment »

We think the 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 150 USB flash drives listed on ebay USA by nursejenn1025 are counterfeit and fake capacity items purchased from one of the many fraudulent wholesale outlets selling on the Internet. No one could afford to list genuine ones with a start price below the manufacturing cost.

Please ebay sellers – do your research before buying flash memory 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.

Report in to SOSFakeFlash if testing confirms you have purchased fake capacity flash memory on ebay.

This fraudster from China offers 3 models of fake 64GB USB flash drives to destroy your data with. We can give you a cast iron guarantee that you will suffer file loss and corruption if you buy these from rolexralph159.

We think this 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drive listed by duitfais (registered in Malaysia) will turn out to be counterfeit and fake capacity. If we are right it will trash users’ files. If we are wrong the buyer will be able to verify the serial number with Kingston.

Ebayer in Australia ships bulk lots of fake Corsair from Hong Kong

leave a comment »

Corsair does not make this model of USB flash drive in 128GB capacity. These are counterfeits that will destroy users’ data after a while. It seems that swankyspanker is dropshipping these out of Hong Kong. This means the seller will never clap eyes on what is being sold and will have no chance of testing them to find out the truth.

This seller is also selling fake Kingston flash drives in bulk. We strongly advise ebay sellers to avoid dropshipping flash memory like the plague!! You are fairly certain to find yourself selling fakes if you do use dropshipping.

Member of singjapan gang sells fraudsters’ favourite on ebay

leave a comment »

This 64GB flash drive sold by nihao.ma18 is the fraudster’s favourite and always corrupts files after a while. This seller is part of a fraud ring in Singapore that the fightflashfraud team has been watching for some time. They are a cunning and devious bunch – we advise all ebay members to avoid flash memory items shipped out of Singapore like the plague.

This fraud ring also seems to sell fake and/or faulty mobile phone batteries – beware they could possibly damage your phone. Avoid phone batteries shipped from Singapore too!

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.

Seems this UK ebayer has been to fakeflash land

This 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drive is far too cheap to be genuine. Seller paulgift obviously bought from a fraudulent supplier. The seller may have no idea these are counterfeit and fake capacity.

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