We think this 128GB Kingston on ebay USA is counterfeit

leave a comment »

Seller 601gsh has a number of these 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drives listed at auction on ebay USA. We are certain they are counterfeits purchased from one of the fraudulent wholesale outlets in China. A counterfeit flash drive is fake capacity and corrupts files. The seller may not realise these are fake.

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.

We suspect flash drives from ebay seller lane_far are fakes

We think the ID lane_far is another being used by a fraud ring in Hong Kong to sell fake capacity flash memory items on ebay. A fake capacity USB flash drive or memory card corrupts files after a while.

32GB memory cards from ebay seller bidme.now11 are bound to be fake

leave a comment »

The 32GB memory card sold in this listing by bidme.now11 looks rather familiar to us at fightflashfraud. We are sure that it will prove to be fake capacity. The ebay ID bidme.now11 seems to belong to a rather devious fraud gang that fightflashfraud has been watching for some time. We think that this memory card corrupts photos and anything else saved to it once the true capacity is exceeded.

UK seller offers obvious fake 128GB flash drive for sale on ebay

leave a comment »

We previously reported suspicions that the Kingston flash drives from okltd might be fakes from a fraudulent supplier but we could not be certain. However there is absolutely no doubt whatsoever that this 128GB USB flash drive listed by the seller is fake capacity and corrupts files. There is no such thing as a genuine Sony Vaio flash drive – they are fakes made by fraudsters in China.

We are certain this 16GB flash drive on ebay Australia corrupts files

The leather and steel type model of USB flash drive shown in this ebay listing from asm134com has always proved to be fake capacity (which causes files to become corrupt evenually) when tested by members of the fightflashfraud team. We are certain this one will be the same.
