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.
