Looks like another Gremlin selling fake flash on ebay

leave a comment »

This 32GB Sandisk USB flash drive is far too cheap to be genuine. We think that huobihuansuan2 is yet another ebay gremlin shipping fakes out of Hong Kong. Fake flash memory items corrupt datat 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.

Does this Kingston USB flash drive sold on ebay even exist?

leave a comment »

An ebay member alerted us yesterday to the fact that he could not see this flash drive on Kingston’s website. We think he could be right in concluding that this is probably another fake.

Suspect 16GB SD memory cards from Hong Kong on ebay

with one comment

The 16GB SD memory cards sold on ebay by Hong Kong seller shumaseller168168 seem a bit on the cheap side to us.

This makes us wonder if they are fake capacity items which will corrupt users’ files in the long run.

UK ebay member lists very familiar fake 64GB USB flash drive

leave a comment »

UK ebay seller muzz1979 obviously went shopping in fakeflashland and came back with one of the most notorious fake USB flash drives of all. This 64GB USB leather and steel type flash drive always corrupts files after a while because it is fake capacity. The seller probably has no idea he or she bought from a fraudulent supplier.

These 8GB USB flash drives listed on ebay look like fakes to us

leave a comment »

The 8GB USB flash drives pictured on the left have a tell-tale sign that they are fakes which will corrupt users’ files.

Can you spot the tell-tale sign?

If not, have a look at the PDF guide to fake flash!

This leads us to conclude that all flash memory items from Hong Kong based seller pangshopwp will prove to be fakes that corrupt users’ files.

Seems that eliyu123 is yet another ebay gremlin in Hong Kong selling fake flash drives that will corrupt users’ files. Almost all flash memory items from sellers in this part of the world turn out to be fake capacity and we are certain these 32GB USB flash drives will be no different.
