greataussiedeals4u selling fake 128GB flash drives on ebay

leave a comment »

Seller greataussiedeals4u has obviously been shopping in fake flash land as the leather and steel type of flash drive in this ebay listing is a notorious fake capacity flash drive that corrupts files. Many ebay sellers fall into the trap of buying these from fraudulent suppliers in China. Not surprising as they look so attractive – however anyone who has tested these knows that they never have a capacity over 4GB and often considerably less. Once the real capacity has been filled files start to be lost and corrupted.

flash drives from ebayer dcs069 are fake, seller hasn’t a clue

leave a comment »

This ebay listing demonstrates that seller dcs069 hasn’t a clue about what he or she is selling; either that or the seller’s pants are on fire. The seller tells us in the listing:

I am offering BRAND NEW and packaged Kingston’s new DataTraveler 200 USB Flash drive. I have a small number of these available and I am available to answer any questions you may have about this item. I am not going to bore you with all the specs etc as you have no doubt done your homework.

Please specify whether you prefer Blue or Pink colour.

Looks like dcs069 didn’t do the homework!The Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drive is not made in 256GB capacity and is not made in pink colour (except by fraudsters in China) – so we can say without a shadow of a doubt that anyone who bought one just got themselves a fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files.

256GB DT310 flash drives from ebayer beautymall2009 too cheap

leave a comment »

The 256GB Kingston DataTraveler 310 flash drives in this ebay listing from beautymall2009 are too cheap to be genuine so we are sure that this ebay seller fell into the trap of buying from one of the fraudulent wholesale outlets in China. If we are right these are fake capacity counterfeits which will corrupt files after a while. In the unlikely event that we are wrong buyers will be able to verify the serial number of the flash drive they bought with Kingston.
