Another fraudster in China selling favourite flash drive on ebay

leave a comment »

Seller hellobeijing2009 is yet another fraudster from China selling the fraudsters’ favourite flash drive – easy to program to any fake capacity the seller likes. This USB flash drive corrupts 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.

Although seller greenredyellow may not realise it these 64GB USB flash drives (and the 128GB model) listed on ebay are fake capacity items that corrupt files. This seller obviously bought from a fraudulent supplier.

We think it unlikely that this is a genuine 64GB Kingston DT200

We doubt very much if the 63GB Kingston DataTraveler 150 USB flash drives listed on ebay Australia by seller timoantti will prove to be genuine. We have a feeling that this seller bought from a fraudulent supplier and that they will prove to be counterfeits. The seller should check serial numbers with Kingston – if we are wrong then Kingston will be able to verify the drives. If a flash drive is counterfeit it is also fake capacity and corrupts files.

Seller on ebay Germany bought Kingston from fraudulent supplier

It seems that seller felix*2603 has been shopping with one of the many fraudulent outlets supplying counterfeit and fake capacity memory items that corrupt files. The seller has a number of Kingston models on offer and we are certain all are fakes. The seller (like many ebayers) may not even know there is such a thing as a fake flash drive.

128GB Kingston on ebay Australia too cheap to be genuine

leave a comment »

This 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drive listed by big_robby2k is too cheap to be genuine. The seller no doubt bought from one of the fraudulent suppliers who sell counterfeit and fake capacity flash memory wholesale at prices below the cost of manufacturing genuine devices. A counterfeit USB flash drive corrupts files. The seller should check serial numbers with Kingston – we are certain Kingston will not verify them as they can with genuine flash drives.

Looks like another ebay seller with fake DataTraveler flash drives

We are sure the Kingston DataTraveler USB flash drives sold by gozya (registered in the USA) will prove to be counterfeits. A counterfeit USB flash drive is also a fake capacity USB flash drive that corrupts files.
