Obvious fake flash drive listed on ebay by UK seller alex1_11

leave a comment »

This 32GB flash drive listed on ebay by alex1_11 is an obvious fake. This USB flash drive corrupts files because it is fake capacity. This seller sold another very obvious fake, item number 290426629864, on 19th April. We think that this seller may be aware that the flash drives are fake as listings are private.

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.

woxzznij56 sells counterfeit 128GB DT200 flash drives on ebay

leave a comment »

No one could sell genuine 256GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drives on ebay at this price. Seller woxzznij56 obviously bought counterfeits from a fraudulent supplier. A counterfeit USB flash drive is always fake capacity and corrupts files as a result.

UK ebayer 4216chrisw dropshipping fake flash drives from Hong Kong

with 2 comments

It appears that UK ebay member 4216chrisw is dropshipping fake capacity USB flash drives from Hong Kong. Dropshipping arangements are dangerous for both the seller and the buyer where flash memory is concerned. Seller 4216chrisw will not have had an opportunity to check the flash drives sold on ebay to ensure they are genuine (we could almost write a gaurantee certificate saying these are fake!) and buyers will find their files are corrupted after a while – often too late to claim a refund.

128GB Kingston flash drive on ebay a bit too cheap to be genuine

leave a comment »

We suspect that ebay seller simonsarahknight bought these 128GB Kingston DataTraveler USB flash drives from a fraudulent supplier as they seem a bit too cheap to be genuine. If we are right about the supplier being fraudulent they will be counterfeit and fake capacity. A fake capacity flash drive corrupts files. The 32GB Corsair flash drives from this seller are also a bit too cheap to be genuine.

The model of flash drive in this ebay listing from UK seller sudh46 is not made in 256GB capacity so this is undoubtedly a fake capacity flash drive that corrupts files. A quick look at the Kingston web site will confirm that this is not a genuine item.
