Another member of the singjapan gang selling fake flash drives

leave a comment »

This familiar fake flash drive is a favourite with fraud rings – including the devious singjapan gang. Seller memory-world-911 is part of this Singapore based ebay fraud ring. Any flash memory you buy from this seller will be fake and will corrupt your files. This fraudster is not currently selling anything and may be preparing to skip off 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 your fake if testing confirms you have purchased fake capacity flash memory on ebay.

These 16GB USB flash drives on ebay UK are likely to be fakes

leave a comment »

It is almost certain that its-all-urs bought these leather and steel type 16GB USB flash drives from a fraudulent supplier as we have never come across any of these with genuine capacity. All those we tested were programmed to false capacites resulting in file loss and corruption.

Obvious fake 128GB USB flash drive listed on ebay Belgium

leave a comment »

Seller jellos40 may not realise it but the 128GB USB flash drive this seller has listed on ebay is not made by Sony and is not really 128GB. It is a fake that will corrupt files as the seller would have discovered if he of she had tested with h2testw.

Ebay member leo19600_0 (based in Belgium) was warned by an ebay member that this flash drive was likely to be a fake and advised to test with h2testw. This seller bought flash drives on ebay from fraudsters we are keeping an eye on. The response from leo19600_0 was that the flash drive works fine – we think not!!

Either seller leo19600_0 failed to understand or doesn’t care about selling fakes. Please ebayers – if someone suggests you have bought or listed for sale an item that is likely to be fake and suggests you test with h2test, take it seriously! Fake flash memory corrupts files – many people have lost data that no amount of money could replace due to using fake flash memory items.

suspiciously cheap 4GB Kingston USB flash drives on ebay USA

leave a comment »

The 4GB Kingston USB flash drives listed on ebay USA by pdqsyr look suspiciously cheap to us. This makes us wonder if this ebay member bought from one of the fraudulent wholesale outlets supplying counterfeits. If they are counterfeit they will also be fake capacity and will corrupt files.

We don’t think these are genuine Kingston flash drives

We think it highly unlikely that the 16GB Kingston flash drives listed on ebay by zhujiyao123 are genuine. We think they are counterfeit and fake capacity items which will corrupt users’ files.

32GB Sandisk USB flash drives on ebay unlikely to be genuine

We have a feeling that the 32GB Sandisk USB flash drives listed on ebay by sdafszcxv (registered in Korea) will turn out to be counterfeit and fake capacity. If so they will corrupt users’ files.
