chentao_1020 lists counterfeit 128GB Kingston flash drives on ebay

leave a comment »

We have never come across a genuine 16GB USB flash drive for £15 let alone one of higher capacity. The memory chips in a genuine 128GB Kingston cost more than this to manufacture! This flash drive listed by chentao_1020 (registered in China) is counterfeit, fake capacity and corrupts files. It seems that the seller is anticipating the possibility of negative feedback:

Never leave me Negative Feedback before contact me first to resolve any question!Otherwise,I won’t offer any return or refund service!

So there you have it – expose the fact that chentao_1020 is selling fakes and this seller will try to wriggle out of refunding you!

64GB Kingston on ebay Spain is a bit too cheap to be genuine

leave a comment »

We think seller solonegociosonline bought these 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 150 flash drives from a fraudulent supplier – if they were genuine solonegociosonline couldn’t sell them this cheaply. We think they will turn out to be counterfeit and fake capacity. A fake capacity USB flash drive inevitably corrupts files after a while.

64GB Kingston DT200 drives on ebay Germany likely to be counterfeit

We think the 64GB Kingston DataTraveler USB flash drives listed at auction on ebay Germany by tosj0804 are most likely counterfeits purchased from a fraudulent supplier. A counterfeit flash drive is always fake capacity and corrupts files.

fake capacity flash drives sold on ebay Germany by zavc.mc

leave a comment »

The 64GB flash drives sold in lots of 3 by seller zavc.mc on ebay Germany are fake capacity – nowhere near 64GB – a fake capacity USB flash drive like these corrupts files once the real capacity (usually a maximum of 4GB and often less than 2GB) is reached.

Any flash drive sold in this packaging is certain to be a fake. These are sold by many fraudulent wholesale outlets in China and many ebayers around the world have fallen into the trap of buying them to sell on ebay. Do not think you can buy genuine USB flash drives on ebay for tiny prices – all you will get is a fake that trashes your files!!

test any USB flash drive from UK ebayer jay191291 immediately

As ebay seller jay191291 is aware that this is not a genuine Kingston but obviously didn’t test it properly (as the seller says it works well) we’d be very wary of any flash memory listed by this seller.
