Seems top rated ebay seller made mistake of buying from fraudulent supplier

leave a comment »

These 64GB USB flash drives listed by top rated UK ebay seller uk-shop-retailer are far too cheap to be genuine 64GB flash drives. We would strongly recommend that all sellers test any flash memory items they plan to sell on ebay with h2testw before listing them for sale. This seller risks losing his or her excellent feedback score which is currently 100% by selling USB flash drives that we are certain will corrupt files after a while.

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 think this 4GB USB flash drive on ebay is so hot it will melt your files away!

We suspect that UK ebay seller kicaj888 has been shopping in fake flash land and has purchased a load of fakes that will corrupt files from a fraudulent supplier in China. This seller has a range of very fancy looking USB flash drives for sale – sadly, we think every one of them willl prove to be a fake capacity drive which corrupts files.

We strongly advise anyone who is considering selling flash memory items on ebay to test their stock on arival with the free test program h2testw. Most of the flash memory advertised by wholesale outlets is fake – if you value your reputation as a seller then test before you list!

We advise everyone who buys flash memory items to test them with the free program h2testw irrespective of where they were purchased – otherwise you (or your customers) run the risk of data loss and corruption.

UK ebay seller may have bought USB flash drives from fraudulent supplier

leave a comment »

We have a feeling that UK ebay seller jolles0 may well have purchased these USB flash drives from one of the many fraudulent wholesale suppliers who sell fake capacity memory items. If so then this USB flash drive corrupts files. We strongly advise sellers to test all flash memory items with h2testw before listing them for sale on ebay – over 90% of flash memory sold on ebay turns out to be fake capacity.

This seller probably has no idea about this problem. Fakes on ebay are usually either shipped directly from China or bought by ebayers elswhere in the world from fraudulent wholesale outlets in this part of the world.

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.

Seller syara_kassim seems to realise that this is not a genuine Kingston USB flash drive but does not realise that this means that it corrupts files because it is fake capacity. The seller says:

USB flash drive
·Storage Capacity: 32 GB
·Hi-Speed USB
.Not originally Kingston brand
·OS Required: Microsoft Windows XP SP1, Microsoft Windows 2000 SP4, Microsoft Windows XP SP2, SuSE Linux Kernel 2.6.x, Apple MacOS X 10.3.x or later, Microsoft Windows Vista Technical Details

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.

we think this UK ebayer bought 8GB USB flash drives from fraudulent wholesaler

We think the 8GB USB flash drive pictured in this ebay listing by 8231debbie will prove to be fake capacity. If we are right this means this USB flash drive corrupts files. Why do we think this? Because this is one of the models commonly supplied by fraudulent wholesalers in the far east. Many ebay sellers have unwittingly bought fakes that corrupt files from these suppliers without being aware that there is such a thing as fake flash memory.

We advise everyone who buys flash memory items to test them with the free program h2testw irrespective of where they were purchased – otherwise you or your buyers run the risk of data loss and corruption.

4GB Sandisk USB flash drive on ebay seems a bit on cheap side

leave a comment »

The 4GB Sandisk USB flash drives listed on ebay by seller bobob_uk seem a little on the cheap side to us which makes us wonder if they are genuine. If these flash drives are not genuine then they will be fake capacity and will corrupt files after a while.

This ebay item is not a 4GB Sandisk Cruzer flash drive

leave a comment »

The picture in this ebay listing by pisunt88 (registered in China) does not show a 4GB Sandisk Cruzer flash drive. What is shown in the picture is a generic USB flash drive that may be fake capacity. If it is a fake USB flash drive then it corrupts files.
