Are this USA ebay seller’s flash memory items genuine?

leave a comment »

USA ebay seller weasel_spit has sold a large number of flash memory items in auctions, all of which seem to have come without packaging. The seller’s explanation for this somehow does not ring true to us so we wonder if the items might be counterfeits. If they are counterfeit they will be fake capacity and fake capacity flash memory corrupts files.

32GB USB flash drive on ebay for under £20? No way, Hosé!!

leave a comment »

The 32GB USB flash drives in this ebay listing from 101praise-store (a Hong Kong based seller) are fake, fake, fakity fake. At this price they could not possibly be anything else. Beware – this USB flash drive is fake capacity (will look like 32GB to the operating system but the real capacity will be 4GB at most) and as a result it corrupts files.

A very dodgy looking listing on ebay Germany

leave a comment »

We don’t see how seller phonecase_de could possibly offer a genuine 8GB SanDisk Cruzer flash drive free with a prepaid phone card giving 10 euros phone credit for 9.99 euros with free P&P. This just does not add up! We think the flash drives this seller is giving away simply have to be counterfeit and fake capacity. A counterfeit fake capacity flash drive inevitably corrupts files.
