128GB DT200 flash drives from ebayer lapeach02 too cheap

leave a comment »

These 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drives being sold on ebay by lapeach02 seem just too cheap to be genuine so we suspect this ebayer bought from a fraudulent supplier. If our suspicion is correct then these usb flash drives are counterfeit and fake capacity, which corrupts files. If we are wrong then buyers will be able to verify the serial numbers of the drives with Kingston.

Beware of flash memory from ebay flash fraudster crystalpalace1987

leave a comment »

Despite the fact that ebay seller crystalpalace1987 is a proven fraudster who has sold many fake capacity flash memory items on ebay since we first reported suspicions about this seller back in September 2009, a couple of months after this ID was registered on ebay. By December 2009 crystalpalace1987 (identified as a member of a known fraud gang) became a powerseller despite evidence that proof of fraud had been obtained being published on the Internet in November 2009.

This fraudster is still selling fake flash memory items on ebay and (due to a combination of deviousness and the foolishness of most buyers on ebay who don’t test flash memory items on ebay before leaving feedback) crystalpalace1987 now has a huge positive feedback score of almost 8000 and a 99.1% rating!!

Any flash memory from ebay seller crystalpalace1987 (USB flash drives, MP players, memory cards) is bound to be fake capacity, which corrupts files. If you bought a flash memory item from this fraudster do not leave feedback until you have tested your item thoroughly!

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.
