ebayer fleetwood1975 risks making a loss if flash drive is genuine

leave a comment »

If this 32GB USB flash drive listed on ebay by fleetwood1975 is genuine then the seller is taking a bit of a risk by auctioning it as flash memory items sold at auction tend to fetch low prices and this seller could easily make a loss on the sale.

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.

risa8620 suspended by ebay and listings removed

leave a comment »

Ebayer risa8620 is the third seller registered in Japan that we have come across listing fake flash on ebay. In two years of investigation we have not come across anyone in Japan selling fake flash memory until this week.This ebay listing from seller risa8620 shows what is certain to be counterfeit 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drive. A counterfeit flash drive is fake capacity and corrupts files.

This seller also offered the DT120 in 128GB – a capacity that it is not made in. Since we captured the picture above the seller has been suspended by ebay and listings removed, so if you bought from this seller you will find the item has vanished from your won list.
