Looks like another UK ebay member who sold fake DT200

with one comment

If this 64GB Kingston DataTraveler (item number 120519897241) sold by UK registered ebay member jackson3327 was genuine then snoopy will fall off his doghouse in a dead faint.

We agree with snoopy – who would sell a real one with a start price of under £10? Oh of course – we forgot the explanation given by the seller:

64 GB USB 2.0 data stick drive, Bought for office use but selling due to office closure, only selling as I have no use for item. Brand new in unopened packaging. Please note that this stick was bought from Hong Kong, Iam currently using one which works fine (Massive storage for little money!!!). Bids to start at £9.99 with no reserve. Grab a bargain, “happy bidding and good luck.”

Our comment is visually represented on the right! 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.

There is no such thing as a Sony Vaio flash drive and Sony do not sell any flash drives of capacities over 32GB – this flash drive from taiyang182 is a fake. Fake USB flash drives corrupt files.

Member of singjapan ebay fraud ring sells fraudsters’ favourite

Seller sgbest.2122 is a member of a fraud ring based in Singapore which we christened the singjapan gang because most of them claim the fake USB flash drives they sell on ebay are made in Japan. No such thing. Any USB flash drive from this seller will corrupt files.

More counterfeit 128GB Kingston DT200 USB flash drives on ebay

leave a comment »

Seller ycpcglobal is yet another fraudulent ebay seller from China offering ebayers the chance to corrupt lots of data with this counterfeit and fake capacity 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drive.

A counterfeit USB flash drive inevitably corrupts files. Do not think that you can buy genuine flash drives of this capacity at low prices on ebay – all you will get is a fake that destroys your data.

The 64GB USB flash drives from ebay seller ganzh95 are fakes that will corrupt files after a while. They are far too cheap to be genunine.

fraudster in Singapore lists fake flash on ebay as located in Ireland

leave a comment »

Singapore based ebay fraudster 66ljhgfdl09 has listed this patently fake USB flash drive as located in Ireland.

There is no such thing as a Sony Vaio flash drive and Sony do not make flash drives of higher capacities than 32GB

This so called 64GB USB flash drive is nothing of the sort, it is fake capacity and corrupts files.
