We think this 128GB DT200 on ebay UK is a counterfeit

leave a comment »

We think it highly unlikely that the 128GB Kingston DataTraveler USB flash drives listed at auction on ebay by UK seller justasms are genuine. We think this flash drive is counterfeit, fake capacity, and that it corrupts files. Nobody could afford to auction a genuine one like this.

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 ebay ID factory.sales1 belongs to a fraud gang operating out of Singapore that sells fake USB flash drives that corrupt files because they are fake capacity. If you see a flash drive that looks like this, steer well clear!!

We think this ebayer has been shopping in fake flash land

We think that ebay seller hisabo (registered in Japan) has been shopping in fake flash land and bought these Kingston USB flash drives from a fraudulent wholesale outlet. If we are right these are counterfeits and fake capacity. A fake capacity flash drive eventually corrupts files.

another UK ebay seller with fake USB flash drives from fraudulent supplier

leave a comment »

UK seller mpu2g is yet another ebayer who fell into the trap of buying fake USB flash drives from a fraudulent supplier. This USB flash drive is fake capacity and corrupts files. If this seller had researched the cost of flash memory properly before buying these to sell on ebay he or she would have realised they were far too cheap to be anything other than fakes.

We think this 4GB USB flash drive on ebay is likely to corrupt files

leave a comment »

We think this 4GB USB flash drive listed by global_eshop8 on ebay corrupts files and will prove to be fake capacity. Feedback from buyers seems to support our conclusion that global_eshop8 is yet another fake flash fraudster selling hacked USB flash drives on ebay. The use of private listings to hide what is being sold also supports our conclusion that this is yet another case of deliberate fraud on ebay by a seller registered in Hong Kong.

The buy it now price for these 16GB USB flash drives from Hong Kong based ebay seller ec_station aka wkayee is too low for them to be genuinly 16GB. We are certain that this flash drive will be fake capacity with the result that it corrupts files.

ebay fake flash seller in China is not listing anything now

leave a comment »

Seller qzl1981 (registerered in China) is not listing anything for sale at the moment. Perhaps this seller is waiting to see if he or she got away with selling the two models of fake 32GB USB flash drives shown above. If you bought a flash drive from this seller, beware – it corrupts files after a while.
