fake 32GB Sony flash drive from China listed on ebay

leave a comment »

This USB flash drive listed on ebay by mnmg3 (registered in China) is not made by Sony and does not have a capacity of 32GB. This flash drive is fake capacity and corrupts files. This seller also offers another so-called Sony (also fake) and the fraudsters’ favourite – a leather and steel model that always corrupts files.

seems this ebayer bought Kingston flash drives from fraudulent supplier

It seems fairly clear that ebay seller tomtom84red (registered in Australia) bought these 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drives from a fraudulent wholesale outlet selling counterfeit and fake capacity flash drives. A fake capacity USB flash drive inevitably corrupts files. The seller may not realise these are fakes.

We are fairly sure this 8GB USB flash drive from Singapore based ebay seller superiorvalue is fake capacity and corrupts files. You can buy genuine ones from reliable suppliers for this price – why risk being defrauded on ebay?

We are certain that the used Kingston DataTraveler USB flash drives sold on ebay Australia by jordanjons will turn out to be counterfeits. A counterfeit flash drive is always fake capacity and corrupts files.

Seller tam9497 (registered in Australia) may not be aware of it but this USB flash drive is almost certain to be a fake capacity drive which corrupts files. We have not yet come across a genuine one of this type.

If 4GB Sandisk flash drive on ebay Australia is genuine ebayer risks making a loss

leave a comment »

If this 4GB Sandisk USB flash drive is genuine then seller labsew risks making a loss on the sale. If it is not a genunine Sandisk flash drive then it will be fake capacity and will corrupt files. We notice that this seller has a lot of different models of flash drive for sale. If one proves to be fake then it is likely that all will be fake.

It appears that hutfarm (an ebay member in Canada) is re-selling a rather obvious fake USB flash drive (purchased from a de-registered fraudster) in this listing. This USB flash drive is fake capacity and corrupts files.
