leave a comment »

Anyone who buys one of these USB flash drives from seller gift.4u (or indeed any other seller on ebay) will end up with lost and corrupted files. This is one of the easiest models of flash drive for frausters to program to fake capacities. What your operating system shows when you plug a flash drive into your computer is not necessarily the truth!

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.

Seller in Australia lists what must be counterfeits on ebay

leave a comment »

The 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drives sold by thatslifecorp simply have to be counterfeits. No one could afford to sell genuine ones at this sort of price. No doubt this seller shopped with a fraudulent wholesaler. A counterfeit flash drive is also a fake capacity flash drive which corrupts files.

Seems this ebayer in the USA has been shopping in fake flash land

leave a comment »

USA ebay seller onlineshop1009 has sold a range of USB flash drives at impossibly low prices. The only way anyone can sell at these prices is if the flash drives are fakes bought from a fraudulent wholesale outlet. We conclude that this must be the case here – but the seller may not be aware of it. A fake capacity flash drive corrupts files eventually.

If this ebayer’s Sandisk flash drives are genuine then seller risks making a loss

leave a comment »

If the Sandisk USB flash drives listed at auction by UK ebay seller belfield4658 are genuine then this ebay member risks making a loss by listing them with a start price of 99p. If, on the other hand, this seller made the common mistake of buying from a fraudulent supplier then these flash drives will be counterfeit and fake capacity. A counterfeit and fake capacity flash drive corrupts files after a while.

UK seller lists counterfeit 128GB DT 200 USB flash drives on ebay

leave a comment »

UK seller g_tec_store obviously bought these 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drives from a fraudulent supplier. These are counterfeit fake capacity flash drives that corrupt files – at this price they could not possibly be anything else. The seller may be totally unaware that they are counterfeits, but could easily check serial numbers with Kingston to verify this.

This 32GB USB flash drive on ebay is counterfeit and corrupts files

leave a comment »

This 32GB Sony flash drive listed on ebay by aimeew.0191 (registered in the uk) is no such thing. It does not have a real capacity of 32GB and was not made by Sony. It is a counterfeit, fake capacity flash drive that corrupts files. Ebay sellers fall into the trap of buying such items from fraudulent wholesalers because they fail to do their research so that they know what is really available and what the real cost of flash memory is.

Another ID belonging to one of the Hong Kong fraud gangs on ebay

leave a comment »

The ebay ID liuruoyu4983 is yet another being used by one of the Hong Kong based fraud gangs that sell fake capacity flash drives on ebay. A fake capacity flash drive corrupts files. The flash drives in the listing above will have nowhere near 64GB capacity – it costs more than the buy it now price to make a 64GB USB flash drive!
