probable fake USB flash drives listed on ebay by tugrantienda_com

leave a comment »

This model of flash drive is sold by a number of fraudulent wholesalers in China and we suspect that ebay seller tugrantienda_com may have bought from one of these. We advise buyers to check their flash drives with h2testw as there is a good chance that they will be fake capacity, which corrupts files.

fake 32GB Kingston flash drive listed by ebayer jiemod1971

leave a comment »

This USB flash drive listed on ebay by jiemod1971 is counterfeit, fake capacity and corrupts files. How do we know? Because this model of Kingston flash drive is not made in 32GB capacity. This was undoubtedly manufactured by fraudsters in China.

Singapore fraudster hi20cards sells fake USB flash drives on ebay

leave a comment »

This 128GB USB flash drive sold on ebay by hi20cards (a member of a devious fraud gang we have been watching for some time) is fake capacity and corrupts files. As soon as one ID belonging to this Singapore based fraud ring is suspended by ebay another springs into action.

They prepare for their fraudulent activities with false positive feedback from other gang members before really selling anything. This helps them fool ebayers into buying as there is a 100% positive feedback score when they embark on their fraudulent sales.

The fake positive feedback also helps offset the inevitable negs that will come in after a while when ebayers begin to realise they have been diddled! Do not be fooled – you cannot buy genuine flash memory items at tiny prices. If you do buy a flash drive at a low price (the sale price of this was less than a third of what you could expect to pay) then you are certain to get a fake.

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.

64GB Kingston from ebayer astronauta1964 probably counterfeit

leave a comment »

We think this 64GB Kingston DataTraveler USB flash drive listed on ebay by astronauta1964 is probably counterfeit, fake capacity and corrupts files. If we are wrong the buyer will be able to verify the serial number with Kingston.

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.

ebayer straughan.123 seems less than honest about this flash drive

leave a comment »

We think that ebay seller straughan.123 is being somewhat less than honest in this listing for a 16GB USB flash drive. The seller says:

Unwanted Birthday Present – 16GB Generic Flash Disk USB 2.0 Device (with swivel cap).
I have purchased an external hard drive, so I do not require a 16GB Mass Storage Device.
File System of device is FAT32, so the device can be used on all computers.
This product will be posted from the U.K. & not Asia as shown on most storage devices for sale on Ebay.
Free Postage:-)
Happy Bidding, Pick up a bargain!

Oh yes? Then why does feedback show that an identical looking 16GB flash drive was purchased on ebay from areema_design? And feedback from buyers suggests that the USB flash drives from areema_design are likely to be fakes.

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.

test flash memory from ebay seller afei2006 with h2testw immediately

with 4 comments

The 16GB Sandisk micro SD cards sold by ebay seller afei2006 (registered in China) seem too cheap to be genuine. As afei2006 has also sold the very obvious fake Sony Vaio flash drive on the left (invented by fraudsters in China and not sold by Sony) we conclude we have another fake flash fraudster from China here.

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.

If this Sandisk flash drive on ebay from tc7118 is genuine seller risks a loss on sale

leave a comment »

If this 64GB Sandisk Ultra Backup flash drive is genuine it is likely that ebay seller tc7118 will make a loss on the sale by auctioning it on ebay. Auctioning flash memory items on ebay is a very risky business if what you are selling is genuine as bidding tends to be rather low.

We are pretty sure that the 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drives from ebayer canyonracerx will prove to be counterfeit and fake capacity.
