replica Kingston flash drives on ebay from shop4easy will trash files

leave a comment »

Seller shop4easy has realised that the flash drives listed at auction on ebay are not genuine Kingston but does not seem to understand that selling counterfeit items is a criminal offence! Not only that but shop4easy failed to test them properly. Had the seller done so then he or she would have discovered that the real capacity is nowhere near that reported in drive properties. The real capacity is pretty certain to be 4GB or less and once this has been filled files will start to be lost and corrupted.

The buy it now price in this ebay listing from vistan2005 seems a bit low for the 32GB Sandisk Ultra Backup flash drive which makes us wonder if these will turn out to be fake capacity counterfeits that corrupt files.

fake 32GB flash drives in one day ebay listings from geoffrey7877

leave a comment »

The USB flash drives in one day ebay auctions from seller geoffrey7877 are certain to be fake capacity, which corrupts files. Every single flash drive (whatever the model or advertised capacity) tested by our team which came in this packaging proved to be fake and we don’t think for a second that these are any different. It appears that geoffrey7877 has been on a shopping trip to fake flash land.

Notorious file corrupting flash drives listed on ebay by ecmonster

leave a comment »

The leather and steel type of flash drive in this ebay listing from ecmonster is always fake capacity and corrupts files once the real capacity (never found to be more than 4GB) has been filled. It looks as though this seller has a drop-shipping arrangement with a fraudulent supplier. When items are drop-shipped the seller never claps eyes on them so cannot test to ensure they are ok as they are sent directly to the buyer by the supplier. It is never wise to enter such arrangements when selling flash memory items as you are pretty certain to find yourself selling fakes.

bonbeachbargainbin2010 auctions 256GB DT310 flash drives on ebay

leave a comment »

The 256GB Kingston DataTraveler 310 flash drives in ebay auctions from bonbeachbargainbin2010 are extremely unlikely to be genuine but if they are buyers will be able to confirm this by verifying the serial number of the flash drive with Kingston. If the serial number cannot be verified the flash drive is a fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files.

32GB Sony flash drives listed on ebay by fnhshop are fakes

leave a comment »

We can say without a shadow of a doubt that the 32GB flash drives listed on ebay by fnhshop have nothing whatsoever to do with Sony. They are fake capacity counterfeits manufactured by fraudsters in China. This seller (like many other ebayers) obviously bought these from a fraudulent supplier and may have no idea that they are fakes. Anyone who buys one of these fake capacity flash drives will find that it corrupts their files after a while.

If you see a Sony USB flash drive like the one pictured in this ebay listing you can be certain you are looking at a fake from China that is sure to corrupt files.

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 worse still, your customers) run the risk of data loss and corruption.
