singjapan gang member lists 128GB fake USB flash drive on ebay

leave a comment »

Seller buzzle_2009 is a member of the singjapan gang, a devious and very organised fraud ring operating out of Singapore which has a tendancy to claim that the fake USB flash drives they sell are made in Japan. Any flash drive you buy from this seller will be fake capacity and will corrupt files after a while.

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.

This ebay member seems to have been to fake flash land

We are certain these 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drives listed on ebay by trolleycable are counterfeits which will corrupt users’ files. We are sure that this ebayer bought from one of the fraudulent wholesalers supplying counterfeit and fake capacity flash memory items. The seller may have no idea they are likely to be counterfeits. Genuine DT200 flash drives have individual serial numbers that can be verified with Kingston – we don’t think they will verify these.

If these 8GB Kingston flash drives are genuine seller risks a loss

If the 8GB DataTraveler USB flash drives listed on ebay Germany by xpress-electronic are genuine the seller is taking a bit of a risk by listing them with such a low start price. By doing this the seller could easily make a loss on every sale.

These are not a genuine 32GB Kingston USB flash drives

leave a comment »

These flash drives listed on ebay India by 9820220717 are not genuine Kingston.

Kingston does not sell any swivel type flash drives in 32GB capacity that look like this. These are fakes that were no doubt produced by fraudsters in China.

Not only are they not made by Kingston but they will also have a much smaller capacity than 32GB.

The result of this is that they will corrupt files once the true capacity is exceeded. To learn the truth about the capacity of flash memory items you need to test them. Looking at drive properties will not tell you anything but what the fraudsters who program these devices want you to see.

Fake 64GB Sony USB flash drive listed on ebay by seller from Korea

leave a comment »

There is no such thing as a 64GB Sony Vaio USB flash drive – this item from jixianghshk41 is a fake that will corrupt files after a while.

We think the same applies to the Sandisk flash drive listed by this seller.

Buy cheap and and you will pay dear by wasting your money and losing your data!

It is far better to pay a realistic price for flash memory from a reliable supplier than trying to find a bargain – but bear in mind that ebay is not the only place you will find fakes.

If this 128GB DT200 is genuine then we think ebayer made a loss

leave a comment »

The price that this 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drive listed by myatiqah fetched at auction is too low for the seller to have made anything but a loss if it is genuine. Genuine DT200 drives have individual serial numbers that can be verified with Kingston.

We have a feeling that Kingston will not verify this one – we think it is more likely that seller myatiqah bought from one of the fraudulent wholesale outlets supplying counterfeit and fake capacity memory that corrupts users’ files. The seller may have no idea that these are counterfeit.

Seems like another ebayer who shopped in fake flash land

We have little doubt that the two models of 32GB USB flash drive shown above sold by momom0032 (an ebay member in Belgium) will be fakes that corrupt users’ files. We think this ebayer (like many ebay sellers) bought from a fraudulent wholesale outlet. This seller may have no idea that they were fakes.
