256GB DT310 listed on ebay by vfrbikerboy a likely counterfeit

leave a comment »

We think it extremely unlikely that this 256GB Kingston DataTraveler 310 flash drive from ebayer vfrbikerboy is genuine. We think it will turn out to be yet another fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files. If we are wrong the buyer will be able to verify the drive as genuine with Kingston using the unique serial number provided.

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.

If flash drives from ksuscha100 are genuine, ebayer may make a loss

leave a comment »

Seller ksuscha100 has listed a number of these USB flash drives in 16GB and 32GB capacities in ebay auctions. If they are genuine then this seller could well make a loss by auctioning them. If (on the other hand) they were purchased from a fraudulent suppliers it is the buyers who will lose; both financially and in finding themselves with corrupted files.

obvious fake capacity 64GB flash drive listed on ebay by sus2511

leave a comment »

The real capacity of this flash drive listed at auction on ebay by sus2511 will be nowhere near 64GB. The real capacity will be 4GB at the most, though the drive properties will be displayed as 64GB due to fraudulent programming by the fraudsters in China who manufactured it. The seller may have no idea this is a fake capacity flash drive that corrupts files.

128GB DT200 in ebay auction by sherman0160 likely to be fake

leave a comment »

We think it unlikely that this 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drive listed at auction on ebay by sherman0160 is genuine. If we are wrong then the buyer will be able to confirm it is genuine by registering the serial number with Kingston. The same goes for the 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 150 listed by this seller. If the serial number cannot be verified the flash drive will be a fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files.

thegreatestdeals21 sells fake flash drives in private ebay auctions

Any flash drive you see in the packaging shown in this ebay listing from thegreatestdeals21 is fake capacity and corrupts files. The use of private listings makes us wonder if this seller knows they are fakes.

The leather and metal type flash drive in this ebay listing from passimpas is a notorious fake. The real capacity will be nowhere near the advertised 128GB – it will be 4GB at most (though the drive properties will show it as 128GB) – a fake capacity flash drive like this corrupts files.
