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.

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.

Seller frajertuning (registered on ebay Spain) has been selling a range of fake capacity USB flash drives on ebay for some time.

USB flash drives listed on ebay by sherie786 are not faulty but fake

leave a comment »

The flash drive shown in this ebay listing by sherie786 are not, as the seller supposes, faulty. It is a fake capacity USB flash drive which corrupts files. The drives show a capacity of 128GB when you plug them in to the computer due to fraudulent programming.

There is not, never has been, and never will be, such a thing as a 128GB Sony Vaio USB flash drive – these are counterfeit, fake capacity items that trash your data after a while. Had this seller tested these fakes (no doubt bought from one of the fraudulent wholesalers in China) with h2testw then the truth would have been revealed.

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.

16GB USB flash drive on ebay UK seems a bit on the cheap side

leave a comment »

This 16GB Maxell flash drive seems rather cheap to us which makes us wonder if they came from a fraudulent supplier. If staffykent bought them from one of the fraudulent wholesale outlets in China then this USB flash drive will be fake capacity which corrupts files. If they are genuine then they are an absolute bargain! The same goes for other models of flash drive from this seller.
