If this 16GB Sandisk USB flash drive is genuine seller risks a loss

leave a comment »

If this is a genuine 16GB Sandisk USB flash drive then US seller markelling risks making a loss by selling it at auction. If it is not genuine then it will be fake capacity and a counterfeit fake capacity flash drive corrupts files.

These are too cheap to be genuine 16GB USB flash drives so we conclude that frenzy.sales2009 is yet another fraud ID in Singapore being used to sell fake capacity USB flash drives on ebay. A fake capacity USB flash drive corrupts files.

We think these 128GB Kingston on ebay Australia are counterfeits

leave a comment »

Seller zapper0_5 has listed a number of these 128GB Kingston USB flash drives in auctions on ebay Australia. We strongly suspect these USB flash drives will prove to be counterfeit and fake capacity items purchased from a fraudulent supplier. If we are wrong then serial numbers can be verified with Kingston. If we are right these USB flash drives corrupt files.

Good greif! a 128GB USB flash drive listed on ebay for under £16!

leave a comment »

Poor old Snoopy fell off his doghouse in shock when he saw this listing. When he recovered conciousness Snoopy told us that UK ebay seller ewandub bought these from a fraudulent supplier who advertises on a well known site where fraudulent wholesale outlets in China ply their wares.

That didn’t surprise us – it would cost more than £16 for the flash chips (let alone other components) to make a 32GB flash drive let alone a 128GB one! Had this seller done his or her research properly then ewandub would have known better than to buy these.

This 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drive is a counterfeit and fake capacity item which corrupts files. The seller probably has no idea that this is the case.

The Kingston USB flash drives sold on ebay USA by top-rated seller orostarmfg are counterfeit and fake capacity items that corrupt files. How do we know? Well for one thing they are the wrong colour…. The seller may not have realised they are fakes.

Do we think the “used” 128GB Kingston DataTraveler flash drives in this ebay listing from 7jtrentt on ebay Australia are genuine? Do we heck as like! We think they will turn out to be counterfeit and fake capacity.

Another UK ebayer who has been shopping in fake flash land

The 16GB USB flash drives listed on ebay by dev0202feb are certain to be fake capacity – this model of flash drive always is. Fake capacity USB flash drives corrupt files eventually. This seller obviously bought from a fraudulent supplier and may not realise these are fakes.

UK ebayer lists fake Sony 240GB USB flash drivs for sale

with one comment

UK ebay member dazaclaza obviously did not research the subject of flash memory before buying these fake 240GB Sony USB flash drives to sell on ebay. There is no such thing as a 240GB USB flash drive – only hard drives are made in this capacity. This USB flash drive was not made by Sony (the maximum capacity of flash drives sold by Sony is 32GB) and it corrupts files because it is fake capacity.

We think this 64GB Kingston DataTraveler on ebay is a fake

leave a comment »

We think this 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 150 listed at auction by UK seller harveyatthebeeches is very likely to be counterfeit, fake capacity. If we are right then it corrupts files, if we are wrong Kingston will be able to verify the serial number.

If these are genuine Kingston, seller in Canada risks making a loss

leave a comment »

If the 64GB Kingston DataTraveler USB flash drives listed on ebay Canada by stevepic78 are genuine then the seller risks making a loss by selling them at auction. We suspect they may well be counterfeits bought from a fraudulent supplier. We wonder if it occurred to this seller to check the serial numbers with Kingston to ensure they are genuine. If they are counterfeits then they will be fake capacity. A counterfeit and fake capacity USB flash drive corrupts files.

Looks like this ebayer in Canada is dropshipping from Hong Kong

leave a comment »

As ebay member dealscool2009 is registered in Canada but the item location in this listing is given as Hong Kong it seems that this seller has become involved in dropshipping. In dropshipping operations the seller never actually sees the items they sell. This is very dangerous where USB flash drives are concerned as the seller cannot check that they are genuine. In this case they are too cheap to be genuine 16GB USB flash drives. They will be fake capacity items which corrupt files.
