The ebay ID dang_gengshen no doubt belongs to a familiar ebay fraud gang in China. This 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drive is undoubtedly counterfeit, fake capacity and corrupts files – it is too cheap to be anything else.

Report your fake if testing confirms you have purchased fake capacity flash memory on ebay.

Are this USA ebay seller’s flash memory items genuine?

leave a comment »

USA ebay seller weasel_spit has sold a large number of flash memory items in auctions, all of which seem to have come without packaging. The seller’s explanation for this somehow does not ring true to us so we wonder if the items might be counterfeits. If they are counterfeit they will be fake capacity and fake capacity flash memory corrupts files.

32GB USB flash drive on ebay for under £20? No way, Hosé!!

leave a comment »

The 32GB USB flash drives in this ebay listing from 101praise-store (a Hong Kong based seller) are fake, fake, fakity fake. At this price they could not possibly be anything else. Beware – this USB flash drive is fake capacity (will look like 32GB to the operating system but the real capacity will be 4GB at most) and as a result it corrupts files.
