Beware of flash memory items sold on ebay by lcuents

leave a comment »

Axel drew our attention to this ebay listing for a fake flash drive. The model of Kingston shown in this ebay listing from lcuents was never made in 128GB capacity. This is a fake capacity counterfeit USB flash drive that corrupts files. We think the seller bought from one of the fraudulent wholesale outlets in China that sell counterfeit and fake capacity memory items so it is likely that memory cards from this seller will also be fake capacity.

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 Kingston flash drives from ebayer nicepriceonlineuk a bit cheap

leave a comment »

The buy it now price in this ebay listing from nicepriceonlineuk seems a little low for genuine 32GB Kingston DataTraveler 150 flash drives, the same applies to the 32GB DT 200 flash drives from this seller. This makes us wonder if this seller bought from one of the fraudulent supplier in China that sell counterfeit and fake capacity memory items that corrupt files. If these are actually genuine then buyers will be able to confirm this with Kingston by verifying the serial number of the drive.

ramati_maa lists fake 64GB Sony flash drive on ebay

leave a comment »

The flash drive in this ebay auction from ramati_maa was not made by Sony (though the Sony name is shown on the drive they have never sold anything like this) and it does not have a real capacity of 64GB. This is a fake capacity and counterfeit USB flash drive that corrupts files.

izpcworld10 auctioning notorious fake 128GB flash drive on ebay

leave a comment »

The (supposedly) 128GB flash drive in this ebay auction from izpcworld10 is fake capacity and corrupts files – this leather and steel model is absolutely notorious – never buy this on ebay, whatever the capacity! Sony have never sold any 128GB flash drives or anything that looks remotely like this.

32GB flash drives listed on ebay by katiej041204 may be fakes

leave a comment »

We suspect that ebay seller katiej041204 bought the 32GB swivel type flash drives in this ebay listing (and the 16GB ones) from a fraudulent supplier. If we are right then they are fake capacity USB flash drives and fake capacity flash memory corrupts files. We have come across fakes in this packaging before so we suspect this is another of the packages used for fakes – also we noticed there seems to be one of the little shiny capacity stickers so common with generic fakes.

want a fake Kingston? ebay seller yeweixin748 has plenty for you!

leave a comment »

The 256GB Kingston DataTraveler 310 flash drives in the ebay listing above from yeweixin748 are fake capacity counterfeits and so are the 128GB Kingston DataTraveler flash drives in the listing below. They are just too cheap to be anything else. A fake capacity USB flash drive corrupts files. This seller also offers 32GB memory cards at a price that is far too low for them to be anything other than fakes.
