Beware ebayers: nchfuyerng is a devious fake flash drive seller

leave a comment »

Devious ebay fake flash seller nchfuyerng gives the item location for this fake capacity counterfeit 128GB DataTraveler 100 flash drive as Australia – but the seller is in China. This USB flash drive corrupts files, as all fake flash memory does.

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.

64GB Kingston DT150 flash drive from ebayer ali_the_brit17 too cheap

leave a comment »

The buy it now price in this ebay listing is rather low which makes us suspect that the 64GB Kingston DataTraveler flash drives being sold by ali_the_brit17 came from one of the fraudulent suppliers in China. If we are right then this USB flash drive corrupts files. If we are wrong (and we don’t think we are) then the buyer will be able to verify the serial number with Kingston.

Beware: 32GB flash drives on ebay from keithhatch1 sure to be fake

leave a comment »

The 32GB USB flash drives in this ebay listing from keithhatch1 are certain to be fake capacity, which corrupts files. As this ebayer apparently previously sold counterfeit 32GB Kingston flash drives (buyers will find they can no longer see this item in their won list or access it from their feedback because ebay removed the listing – ’nuff said!) we suspect this seller is not simply an innocent victim of a fraudulent supplier.

We wouldn’t give you tuppence for the seller’s weasel words “BEST WARRANTY AROUND” or “YOU KNOW BY OUR FANTASTIC FEEDBACK THAT WE TAKE CARE OF OUR CUSTOMERS” – the seller only has 100% feedback because none of the customers who left feedback for the fakes previously sold realised before ebay removed the listing!

Test flash memory from ebay seller hells_bells1975 with h2testw

leave a comment »

Seller hells_bells1975 has sold a range of flash drives and other items that use flash memory on ebay at prices which seem a bit on the low side. They may be genuine – in which case buyers got bargains. However, they could be from a fraudulent supplier; in which case they will be fake capacity -which corrupts files. Buyers are advised to test items to be on the safe side.

fake flash fraudster dahuaxiyouwu uses private ebay listings

leave a comment »

Here we have an obviously fraudulent private ebay listing from dahuaxiyouwu offering fake 64GB Sony flash drives. This flash drive has nothing to do with Sony (though you can just see in the picture that it is marked Sony) and the capacity of the drive is nowhere near 64GB. Anyone who buys one of these will find themseleves with a fake capacity flash drive that corrupts files.
