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.

128GB Kingston DT200 flash drives from ebayer gadgets4u210

leave a comment »

As we are certain ebay seller gadgets4u210 would have made a loss on this sale if the 128GB Kingston DataTraveler sold in this ebay listing was genuine the fact that this seller has another one listed at auction suggests that this ebayer may have bought these from a fraudulent supplier. Buyers can check whether or not a Kingston flash drive is genuine by verifying the serial number with Kingston. If the serial number cannot be verified then the USB flash drive is a fake capacity counterfeit.

leave a comment »

Anyone who bought a 128GB Kingston DataTravler 200 USB flash drive on ebay from seller wavdrsm will find that what they have purchase is a fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files. Why on earth people think it is possible to buy a 128GB Kingston flash drive on ebay for less than you’d pay for a 16GB one elsewhere is completely beyond us! It costs more than £16.88 to MANUFACTURE one!

neaans$wholesale$ auctioning 256GB DT310 – probably fake

leave a comment »

Seller neaans$wholesale$ tells us in this ebay auction:

I got an extra one for my birthday so I am listing 1 brand new unopened 256 GB USB Flash Drive from Kingston Technology in original packaging.

Strange how many sellers on ebay got 256GB Kingston DataTraveler 310 flash drives for their birthday. Seller neaans$wholesale$ must have particularly generous friends and family to get two!

Do you beleive what the seller says? Well; if it is true, the buyer will be able to confirm that the flash drive is genuine by verifying the serial number with Kingston. If the serial number cannot be verified then this USB flash drive is a fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files.

leave a comment »

The item location given in this ebay listing is as fake as this flash drive.

These fakes are not in the USA but are, along with the seller, located in fake flash land, China.

leave a comment »

Although the name Sony is shown on the flash drive pictured in this ebay listing from zhangjunzhi2010 it has nothing to do with Sony and the capacity of the flash drive is nowhere near 64GB. This model of USB flash drive is a fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files.

yurjfu5188 sells Sony Vaio flash drives on ebay that corrupt files

leave a comment »

As we have said many times before any USB flash drive advertised as Sony Vaio is fake capacity and corrupts files. Sony do not use the Vaio name for USB flash drives – these are purely the invention of fraudsters in China. We cannot understand why ebay is still allowing listings like this one from yurjfu5188 to go on the site in the first place!!

flash drives in ebay auction from zsz136 certain to be fakes!

The flash drives in this ebay listing from zsz136 are certain to be fake capacity, which corrupts files. Why do we think so? Because (for one thing) they have the tell-tale shiny capacity stickers only ever seen on fakes.
