mazafaka1984 lists upgraded (fake capacity) flash drive openly on ebay!

leave a comment »

Estonian ebay seller mazafaka1984 is perfectly open about the flash drive sold in this listing being fake capacity. The seller says:

Notice:this is upgraded version from 4gb to 128gb, plug the pen stick into the computer ,and it shows 128gb, but real total capacity is 4gb

Of course this means that if anyone uses this flash drive then after a while it corrupts files due to the fake capacity.

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.

Another ebay ID in Singapore used to sell fake flash drives

leave a comment »

We are pretty certain that mutant.nemo.09 is yet another ID being used by a Singapore based fraud gang to sell fake capacity USB flash drives. We think this 16GB bullet flash drive corrupts files and that the same will apply to other drives from this seller.

We suspect these 8GB flash drives on ebay Australia may be fake

leave a comment »

A feedback comment saying that this drive did not work but the seller refunded makes us wonder if the 8GB USB flash drives sold by wowdog.9 might be fakes. Could just be that it was an isolated faulty one, we don’t know at the moment.

We strongly advise anyone who bought one of these to test it with the free program h2testw just in case.

64 Kingston DataTraveler on ebay a bit too cheap to be genuine

leave a comment »

We think the 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drives sold by intelligent_ideas were too cheap to be genuine. It is very likely that these are counterfeit and fake capacity flash drives bought from a fraudulent supplier. If we are right this flash drive corrupts files.

The ebay ID little.surprises.303 seems to belong to an ebay fraud ring operating out of Singapore. If we are not mistaken this USB flash drive is fake capacity and corrupts files.

We suspect these 8GB flash drives on ebay will turn out to be fakes

We have a feeling that the 8GB flash drive above listed on ebay by Hong Kong seller smartkey2009 will turn out to be fake capacity. If our suspicions prove correct then the flash drive pictured will be yet another that corrupts files.

This flash drive sold on ebay USA is fake capacity and corrupts files

This 64GB flash drive sold by slade0_3 will not actually have a capacity of 64GB – it is a notorious model of fake flash drive that corrups files because it is fake capacity.
