fake 128GB Sony flash drive sold by ebayer in Austria

leave a comment »

This 128GB Sony flash drive sold on ebay by langmannn1 is fake capacity and corrupts files. There are no genuine Sony flash drives of this capacity. This seller presumably bought from one of the fraudulent suppliers in China.

This item has been listed on ebay by sfdcxc – a fraudster in China. This is a fake flash drive (not made by Sony and not 64GB) and it corrupts files.

we suspect meetyouhere is yet another ebay fraud ID in China

We have a feeling that this USB flash drive sold on ebay by meetyouhere (previous ebay ID datong3211) will prove to be fake capacity and will corrupt files as a result – the other model we notice listed by this seller certainly will be a fake. This seller has negative feedback from 2009 that suggests this would not be the first time that this person sold fake flash memory items. This seller is very likely to be a member of one of the fraud gangs in China who sell on ebay under a variety of IDs.

Is this 32GB Integral flash drive on ebay Spain genuine?

leave a comment »

We could find no trace of this 32GB USB flash drive (listed on ebay by depeche-depechemode) on the Integral website, which makes us suspect that it may be fake. If it is genuine the seller is likely to make a loss by auctioning it. If it is fake then it won’t have a a capacity anywhere near 32GB. Fake capacity flash drives corrupt files.

64GB Kingston DT150 flash drives on ebay UK must be fakes

leave a comment »

The 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 150 USB flash drives listed on ebay by tkh16157 are certain to be counterfeit and fake capacity. It is simply not possible to sell genuine ones at this price on ebay. This seller no doubt bought these from one of the fraudulent wholesale outlets in China. USB flash drives from these wholesalers corrupt files.
