Another ebay seller in Germany who shopped in fakeflashland

leave a comment »

The 128GB leather and steel type USB flash drives listed on ebay by nastjawn are fakes which will corrupt files. This seller obviously bought from a fraudulent supplier. This seller may not be aware that these are fake capacity items – most people do not realise they fool the operating system and think that looking at drive properties is enough to confirm capacity – it isn’t!

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.

64GB Kingston DataTraveler on ebay UK too cheap to be genuine

leave a comment »

The buy it now price in this listing from lse_urslf is far too low for these 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drives to be genuine. They will be counterfeits which corrupt users files once the true capacity (nowhere near 64GB) is used. The seller may be unaware that the supplier was fraudulent and supplied fakes. Genuine flash drives of this type have individual serial numbers that can be verified with Kingston – we are certain they won’t verify these.

These 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drives listed by imacowardlolalot are bound to be counterfeits which will trash users’ files. No one could possibly sell genuine ones for this price!!

looks like counterfeit Kingston DataTraveler 200 on ebay Belgium

These 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drives listed on ebay Belgium by lagrace302 are far too cheap to be anything but counterfeits purchased from a fraudulent supplier. Genuine ones can be verified with Kingston (they have individual serial numbers) but we think it highly unlikely that Kingston will verify these.

128GB Kingston in ebay auctions with suspiciously low start price

leave a comment »

The low start price in auctions by volodymyr3346 for 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drives makes us suspect that these are counterfeits purchased from a fraudulent supplier. Genuine ones have individual serial numbers that can be checked with Kingston – we don’t think Kingston will verify these. If they are counterfeit they will cause file loss and corruption of data.

Seems this UK ebay seller has been to fake flash land

The 64GB USB flash drives listed on ebay by marnie_lush_pink are certain to corrupt users’ files – this particular type always does.

Any 64GB flash drive offered for a silly price like £11.99 cannot be anything other than a fake. It costs a lot more than this just for the flash chips on their own without even thinking about other components.

gremlin2sThere is no such thing as a 32GB Sony Vaio USB flash drive. What buyers will get from baby gremlin seller dgrts is a fake that will trash their files.
