The supposedly 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drives in this ebay listing from lovesales00100 is nothing of the sort. Not a genuine Kingston, not 128GB and not something you would want to trust with your data. This USB flash drive is counterfeit, fake capacity and corrupts files.

scr-boya is another ebay fake flash fraudster by the look of it

leave a comment »

We think the USB flash drive sold in this ebay listing from scr-boya and other flash memory items (the SD memory cards and possibly the MP players) from this seller have been fraudulently programmed to report a fake memory capacity to the operating system. Fake capacity flash memory items corrupt files once the true capacity of the memory is full and often become unusable afterwards as a result.

The model of flash drive in this ebay listing from Singapore fraudster blue.sky4511 is notorious for being fake capacity and corrupting files. It is the most widely sold fake on ebay – sold by nearly every fraudulent seller in the far east. The seller is a member of a fraud ring in Singapore that we have been watching for some time. As one ID is suspended by ebay another springs into action to carry on defrauding unwary ebayers.
