128GB USB flash drive on ebay Australia is too cheap to be genuine

leave a comment »

The buy it now price for these 128GB USB flash drives is rather too low for them to be genuine therefore we think that seller wgs09 bought them from one of the fraudulent suppliers that sell counterfeit and fake capacity flash memory items. We have no doubt that this USB flash drive corrupts files. The seller may not realise these are fakes from a fraudulent supplier.

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.

The 128 GB Kingston USB flash drives from ebay seller palace-art are fake capacity – the model pictured above was never made in this capacity and has now been discontinued by Kingston.

The job lot of 128GB Kingston DataTraveler USB flash drives listed on ebay by tunda1984 (registered in the USA) is certain to be counterfeit – at this price they couldn’t be anything else. Counterfeit USB flash drives are always fake capacity and corrupt files. The seller may not know that the supplier of these is fraudulent.

another ebay seller of fake USB flash drives located in Singapore

leave a comment »

The ebay ID syscare.121store seems to be yet another belonging to the Singapore based ebay fraud ring we christened the singjapan gang. The name singjapan was chosen due to their location, the obvious connections between these IDs, and the claims about their fake flash items being made in Japan, which they certainly are not! The USB flash drives from seller syscare.121store will corrupt files without any shadow of a doubt.
