test flash memory from ebayer raiza59 with h2testw, your files are at risk

leave a comment »

As we notice ebayer raiza59 sold a very obvious fake flash drive (the notorious leather and metal model that corrupts files which we have reported about many sellers offering) we think it is unlikely that any flash memory from this seller will be genuine. We think the 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 pictured in this listing is a fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files. We suspect that any flash drive or memory card sold by raiza59 will corrupt files.

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.

large number of ebay auctions from perypery for 128GB flash drives

leave a comment »

Seller perypery has a large number of ebay auctions for 128GB Kingston and Corsair flash drives. We suspect that perypery bought these from a fraudulent supplier. If we are right in thinking this then they will turn out to be counterfeit and fake capacity. A fake capacity flash drive corrupts files.

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.

probable counterfeit 128GB DT200 listed on ebay by antiquespol

It seems likely that this 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drive listed at auction on ebay by antiquespol will turn out to be yet another fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files. If we are wrong the buyer will be able to confirm with Kingston that the flash drive is genuine using the unique serial number provided.

64GB flash drive listed on ebay by tribel_b sure to corrupt files

leave a comment »

The USB flash drive in this ebay listing is (like any you see in this packaging) fake capacity and corrupts files. The drive will appear to have the advertised 64GB capacity but this is due to fraudulent programming of the control chip by fraud gangs in China.

is 32GB Kingston from ebayer shrede02 genuine or counterfeit?

leave a comment »

As it looks rather as though ebayer shrede02 made a loss on the previous 32GB Kingston DataTraveler flash drive auctioned on ebay (if it was genuine, that is) we are a little surprised to see the seller take the risk of a second loss by auctioning another one. Genuine Kingston flash drives of this type all have individual serial numbers that can be used to verify the drive with the company. If the drive can not be verified then it will be a fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files.
