The low buy it now price in this ebay listing from thundarpaws makes us suspect that this seller may have purchased these 32GB Sandisk Cruzer flash drives from a fraudulent supplier.

Test flash drives sold by ebayer jackk13: a victim of fraud??

leave a comment »

Although the price that ebay member jackk13 has been selling the 16GB flash drives in this ebay listing is perfectly reasonable we suspect they are fakes. We advise anyone who bought a flash drive from this seller to test with H2testw as we think this seller fell victim to a fraudulent wholesale outlet (probably in China) supplying fake capacity memory.

We advise ebayer jackk13 to do the same as we think that any USB flash drive he (or she) listed on ebay is likely to be fake capacity, which corrupts files. Unfortunately there are many fraudulent wholesalers in the far east and an increasing number of ebayers (hoping to make some money in difficult times) are buying from these fraudsters and re-selling on ebay.

We advise everyone who buys flash memory items to test them with the free program h2testw irrespective of where they were purchased – otherwise you (or much worse – your customers) run the risk of data loss and corruption.

flash drives listed on ebay by jxakal79 sure to corrupt users’ files

leave a comment »

We suspect that this 64GB USB flash drive listed at auction on ebay by jxakal79 will turn out to be fake capacity, which corrupts files – apart from anything else the picture shows a tell-tell capacity sticker which we have only ever seen on fakes. Additionally the seller has a buy it now listing for a notorious fake leather model, an auction for the notorious leather fake and another very dodgy looking 32GB swivel type. We think this seller has been shopping in fake flash land.

If this 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 150 flash drive listed on ebay by caminoabc was genuine the seller would risk making a loss by selling it at auction.

The leather and steel type flash drive in this ebay listing is always fake capacity and corrupts files whatever capacity it is listed as.

Anyone who knows their Kingston flash drives would instantly realise that the flash drive in this ebay listing from hedisaadi is not a genuine 64GB Kingston. If this flash drive was genuine the capacity would be 2GB not 64GB – and in fact this particular model has never been made in 64GB capacity.

What we have here is a fake capacity counterfeit Kingston manufactured by fraudsters in China. This flash drive corrupts files once the true capacity (probably 2GB or less) has been filled with files.

256GB Kingston flash drives on ebay from htplace may be fakes

leave a comment »

Although seller htplace has buy it now listings on ebay for 256GB Kingston DataTraveler 310 flash drives at prices which might mean they could be genuine the picture used is the exact same one as used by a number of sellers who are certainly selling counterfeits which makes us a little suspicious.

If the serial number cannot be verified then the flash drive will be a fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files.
