If this 16GB Sandisk flash drive is genuine UK ebayer may make a loss

leave a comment »

Listing USB flash drives at auction on ebay with a 99p start price as seller badabing1957 has done here is a very risky strategy. The seller could easily make a loss on the transaction if the drive is genuine. If it is not a genuine 16GB Sandisk USB flash drive then this will be fake capacity which corrupts files.

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.

Familiar fake capacity flash drive on ebay Australia will corrupt files

leave a comment »

The leather and steel type flash drive in this ebay listing from zuhal_au is a very familiar model to us at fightflashfraud. Every single one of these we tested was fake capacity and a fake capacity flash drive corrupts files. We have no reason to think the ones sold by zuhal_au will be any different from the others we bought on ebay.

512GB USB flash drive listed on ebay by sarimrose is a fake

leave a comment »

This 512GB USB flash drive listed on ebay by sarimrose (registered in Canada) is fake capacity and corrupts files. There is no such thing as a genuine 512GB USB flash drive yet, so any you see listed for sale at the moment will be fake.

When a genuine 512GB flash drive does appear it certainly won’t be in this packaging – all flash drives we tested that came in packaging like this were fakes from China. This seller no doubt bought these from a fraudulent wholesale outlet in China.

4GB Sandisk flash drive on ebay UK seems a bit on the cheap side.

leave a comment »

The buy it now price in this listing for 4GB Sandisk Cruzer Slice flash drives seems rather low to us. This makes us wonder whether seller onelogicltd may have bought from a fraudulent supplier. If they did come from a fraudulent supplier they will be counterfeit and fake capacity – which corrupts files. If they are genuine then they seem a remarkable bargain.

laopeng68 is another ebay seller with fake Kingston flash drives

leave a comment »

You can’t buy a genuine 16GB flash drive for under £17 let alone a 128GB one – the flash chips to make a genuine 128GB flash drive cost more than this to manufacture! The USB flash drive in this ebay listing from laopeng68 (registered in China) was not made by Kingston. It is fake capacity and corrupts files.

Beware, qf45yju7_u7t6 is a sneaky ebay fake flash fraudster

leave a comment »

Seller qf45yju7_u7t6 (registered in China) has sneakily listed this fake flash drive’s location as Cheshire, United Kingdom in this ebay listing – do not be fooled, this seller is not in the UK and is no doubt a member of one of the familiar fraud gangs in China.

Another ebayer in Spain with counterfeit 128GB Kingston DT200

leave a comment »

The buy it now price in this ebay listing from darwidd is too low for these to be genuine Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drives. This seller obviously bought counterfeits from a fraudulent supplier.

If you bought flash memory from bobob_uk test it with h2testw

with 23 comments

We though that the flash memory items listed on ebay by bobob_uk looked suspiciously cheap so we took a look at the seller’s feedback to see what buyers had to say.

We saw comments which suggest that the class six memory cards sold are not class six and are slow.

A number of people seemed to have returned items and asked for refunds and a couple of buyers said the seller is not in fact based in the UK.

If you bought flash memory from this seller we suggest that you test it immediately as it may be that the items are fake capacity – if the flash memory is fake capacity then it will eventually corrupt files.

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.
