yesman.191 sells notorious leather type fake flash drive on ebay

leave a comment »

The flash drive sold by Singapore based ebay fraudster yesman.191 in this ebay listing has a capacity that is nowhere near the advertised 128GB. At most it will save just under 4GB of files before everything starts to become lost or corrupted.

Never be fooled by what the operating system shows when you look at the properties of a flash drive. It is a simple job for fraudsters to program the control chip to show any fake capacity they like. This is particularly true of this leather and metal model, which we christened the fraudsters’ favourite a long time ago. This model has been sold on ebay for years by fraud gangs or by individuals who bought from fraudulent suppliers.

256GB DT310 flash drives from ebayer dom.lindsay90 a bit too cheap

with 8 comments

The buy it now price in this ebay listing from dom.lindsay90 seems rather low for the 256GB Kingston DataTraveler 310 flash drive which makes us suspect that this ebayer may have bought them from a fraudulent supplier. If they came from a fraudulent wholesale outlet in China they will be fake capacity counterfeits and a fake capacity flash drive corrupts files. If they are genuine then buyers will be able to confirm this by verifying the serial number of their flash drive with Kingston.

Sandisk flash drives auctioned on ebay by melgaardian may be fake

leave a comment »

We have a feeling that melgaardian may have bought the 32GB SanDisk flash drives auctioned on ebay from a fraudulent supplier as the seller seems to have made losses on the auctions to date if they are genuine. If they did come from a fraudulent supplier they will be fake capacity counterfeits and a fake capacity flash drive corrupts files.

64GB DT200 flash drives in ebay auctions from delpalillo may be fake

leave a comment »

If the 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drives listed at auction on ebay are genuine then seller delpalillo is risking a big loss on sales by auctioning them rather than using a buy it now listing. Genuine Kingston DT200 flash drives all have individual serial numbers and buyers can confirm the drive is genuine by verifying the serial number with Kingston. If Kingston cannot verify the serial number then the flash drive will be a fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files.

price for 128GB DT200 from ebayer miki752009 is too low, they must be fake

leave a comment »

The buy it now price in this ebay listing from miki752009 is too low for a genuine 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drive so we conclude that what buyers will get is a fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files. Genuine DT200 flash drives have individual serial numbers which can be verified with Kingston but we are absolutely certain that Kingston will not verify drives sold by miki752009,
