Seller kawaleon5 lists suspect USB flash drives on ebay Spain

We are pretty certain this 32GB USB flash drive listed on ebay Spain by sevidcai is fake capacity and corrupts files as this is a model commonly sold by fraudsters in China. It is often marked Sony, who don’t make anything like this!

We suspect flash drives listed on ebay by romkax are fake capacity

leave a comment »

We think it unlikely that this and other flash drives listed on ebay by seller romkax have the advertised capacity. If we are right then they will corrupt files after a while as the capacity reported by the operating system will be considerably more than the real capacity of the drives. A fake capacity flash drive corrupts files.

xiudoumix selling fake Kingston DT200 USB flash drives on ebay

leave a comment »

Is ebay seller xiudoumix offering authentic 128GB Kingston flash drives on ebay for $25? Of course not! A quick phone call to Kingston to check the serial number of one of these supposedly authentic 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drives would soon disabuse any buyer of the notion that they had a genuine item. That is IF the fraudsters in China who manufacture these even bothered to give a fake serial number!

Testing with h2testw would reveal how tiny the capacity of these fake USB flash drives. A fake capacity USB flash drive like these 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.

8GB Kingston flash drives from ebayer good456pcl seem a bit cheap

leave a comment »

These 8GB Kingston USB flash drives listed on ebay by good456pcl seem a little on the cheap side which makes us wonder if they came from one of the fraudulent wholesale outlets that sell counterfeits.

This USB flash drive listed on ebay as faulty is not faulty but fake!

leave a comment »

A lot of ebay members worldwide are now listing “faulty” or “defective” flash drives for sale. They are usually not faulty or defective – they are deliberately created fake capacity flash drives. A fake capacity flash drive corrupts files.

Some ebay members even go to the trouble of setting up a new ebay ID to sell the fakes they bought on ebay or elsewhere – as seems to be the case with oscar1x7 – this seller’s flash drives are not faulty but fake! Do not buy “faulty” flash drives on ebay – you will be wasting your money on a piece of useless c**p! In fact, don’t buy USB flash drives on ebay at all – it’s just too risky!

If you bought a fake on ebay don’t pass the bit of c**p you bought on to some other poor buyer – go after the seller and get a refund then warn other buyers about the problem rather than selfishly contributing to it!
