Kingston DT 150 flash drives from handelamir likely to be counterfeit

leave a comment »

We suspect that ebay seller handelamir (registered in Germany) bought the 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 150 USB flash drives listed in ebay auctions from a fraudulent supplier – if so they will be counterfeit and fake capacity. A fake capacity USB flash drive 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.

Sony Vaio flash drives sold on ebay by meister1912 are fakes

The USB flash drive sold in this listing by meister1912 is fake capacity and corrupts files. There is no such thing as a genuine Sony Vaio USB flash drive – they are fakes invented by fraudsters in China. This seller obviously bought from a fraudulent supplier.

128GB flash drives listed on ebay by shane4lt – not faulty but fake!

leave a comment »

These USB flash drives listed on ebay by shane4lt are not (as suggested in the listing) faulty, they are deliberately created fake capacity drives – and such a flash drive corrupts files. This seller no doubt bought from a fraudulent supplier in China.

Seller shane4lt claims that h2testw shows them as having 128GB capacity – either the seller is a blithering idiot who didn’t understand the output from h2testw or the visual comment on the right applies!

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.

lets.rock.now is another seller of fake flash memory on ebay

leave a comment »

The price in this buy it now ebay listing is just too low for these 128GB USB flash drives to be genuine. We think any flash memory sold by lets.rock.now (based in Singapore) will prove to be fake capacity and corrupts files.

Bulk lot of 128GB Kingston DT200 listed on ebay by secondbasepro

leave a comment »

We are certain the 128GB Kington DataTraveler 200 USB flash drives in this listing came from a fraudulent supplier and will prove to be counterfeits. In the extremely unlikely event that we are wrong then serial numbers can be verified with Kingston. If we are right these USB flash drives will be fake capacity which corrupts files.

We think this 128GB Kingston on ebay is likely to be counterfeit

leave a comment »

We think it highly unlikely that this 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drive being auctioned on ebay by 626gamecollector09 is genuine. We think it is more likely to be a counterfeit. If we are wrong then the buyer will be able to verify the serial number with Kingston. If we are right then it is fake capacity and corrupts files.
