fastflashstore sells bulk lots of fake 32GB memory cards on ebay

We have suspected for a long time that fastflashstore was a fraudulent seller on ebay. This seller has now advertised bulk lots of 32GB memory cards on ebay that simply have to be fake capacity – at this buy it now price they simply couldn’t be anything else. A fake capacity flash memory item always corrupts files.

We have had a number of comments about computer memory (ram modules) from this seller being faulty and the lack of response to complaints. We wouldn’t touch any memory item from this ebay seller with a bargepole!! The use of private listings for such items is very suspicious – usually this is an indicator of deliberate fraud.

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.

32GB USB flash drives on ebay from recordoux likely to corrupt files

We think it unlikely that this USB flash drive listed on ebay by recordoux has a genuine capacity of 32GB, we suspect that recordoux bought from a fraudulent wholesale outlet. If we are right this USB flash drive is fake capacity and corrupts files.

brazen-body-jewellery lists obvious fake Sony flash drives on ebay

leave a comment »

Seller brazen-body-jewellery has put up several buy it now listings on ebay for this very obvious counterfeit and fake capacity Sony flash drive that is certain to corrupt user’s files. This ebay seller obviously bought from one of the fraudulent wholesale suppliers in China and may have no idea that these are nasty little fakes.

Despite what it says on the packaging these flash drives have absolutely nothing to do with Sony. They were manufactured by fraudsters in China who use poor quality flash chips that usually have a maximum storage capacity of 4GB in the fake flash memory items they produce.

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.

We advise any ebayer who bought one of these 16GB USB flash drives from seller conniewally09 to test it immediately with h2tesw – we suspect you could be at risk of data loss as they may have come from a fraudulent wholesale outlet in China.

cameront89501 lists notorious model of USB flash drive on ebay

leave a comment »

The leather and metal model of flash drive in this ebay listing is notorious; it has always been shown to be fake capacity and corrupts files. We don’t think the ones from cameront89501 will be any different and expect this seller fell into the trap of buying from a fraudulent supplier in China.

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.

huangxiaoyan10 (a fake flash seller in China) is suspended by ebay

leave a comment »

The 256GB Kingston DataTraveler 310 USB flash drives in this ebay listing from huangxiaoyan10 (yet another fake flash fraudster in China who has now been suspended by ebay) are counterfeit and fake capacity. At this ludicrously low price they simply couldn’t be anything else. A fake capacity USB flash drive corrupts files once the real capacity (usually 4GB or less) has been filled with files. If you bought from this seller the item will have vanished from your won list because ebay has suspended the seller and removed listings.
