inaltd looks like another ebay seller of fake capacity USB flash drives

with 2 comments

This model of flash drive sold on ebay by inaltd (registered in China) has always proved to be fake capacity when tested by members of the fightflashfraud team. We don’t think this one will be any different. A fake capacity USB flash drive always corrupts files after a while.

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.

Beware! shiyangao20092009 is another fake flash seller on ebay

leave a comment »

Beware! shiyangao20092009 is another fake flash seller from China on ebay – so far this seller does not seem to have been very succesful in selling fake flash drives as quite a number of ebay auctions from this seller have ended without any bids – good – we like to see fraudsters failing to sell their nasty little fakes!

However, a few ebayers have bought from this fraudster. These buyers will undoubtedly find that the USB flash drive they purchased from shiyangao20092009 is fake capacity and corrupts files.

This 128GB DT200 from ebay seller leluxx looks fake to us

leave a comment »

We are pretty certain that ebay item number 110516785946 from seller leluxx (registered in Belgium) is a counterfeit and fake capacity 128GB Kingston Datatraveler 200 flash drive. This seller seems to claim it has been tested – we don’t think so. If it is genuine (not much chance!) then Kingston will be able to verify the serial number. If we are right about it being counterfeit and fake capacity then this USB flash drive corrupts files.
