ebay gremlin in China pretends to be in UK to boost fake flash sales

leave a comment »

gremlin2sDevious ebay Gremlin siyo-global-trading gives the item location as Potsmouth (we think this is supposed to be Portsmouth), UK. This is to make it less obvious that the seller is a fraudster in China selling fake USB flash drives that corrupt files. 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.

We have absolutely no doubt that these 32GB leather and steel USB flash drives from seller 5star18 are fake capacity items that will trash users’ files – we think the same applies to other models from this seller.

Seller tang44658 is yet another fraudster selling fake flash memory on ebay. No doubt this ID belongs to one of the familiar fraud rings based there who have been defrauding ebayers and causing data loss and corruption with their fake flash memory items. The flash drive pictured is a familiar fake sold by many fraudsters on ebay. Anyone who buys one will end up with lost and corrupted files after a while.

This 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drive is certain to be counterfeit and fake capacity. As sammaniar previously sold 128GB Sony USB flash drives (there is no such thing!!) this seller obviously went shopping in fake flash land.

These ludicrously cheap 64GB Kingston DataTraveler USB flash drives from xmei19851224 are counterfeit. Counterfeit flash drives are always fake capacity and trash users’ files after a while. If you buy ludicrously cheap flash memory all you can expect is something that will destroy your data.

ebay seller in Germany buys fraudsters’ favourite in fakeflashland

leave a comment »

Seller 2007eminea has obviously been shopping in fakeflashland and purchased from a fraudulent supplier. This 64GB flash drive is fake capacity – programmed to fool the operating system and thus the user into seeing it as 64GB when it is nothing of the sort. These USB flash drives corrupt files. The seller may be unaware they are fake – sellers should always test their drives properly!!
