If 256GB Kingston DT310 is genuine 10beethoven12 could make loss

leave a comment »

If this 256GB Kingston DataTraveler 310 flash drive listed at auction is genuine 10beethoven12 could well make a loss on the sale. Buyers can check whether or not a Kingston flash drive is genuine quite easily – here are the steps:

  1. Look at the back of the pack – is there a serial number?
  2. If there is no serial number (there should be a label showing this) then it is sure to be a fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files – but the presence of a serial number does not, in itself, gaurantee it is genuine.

  3. Look at the USB connector – is there engraving on it giving details about the flash drive?
  4. If there is no engraving you can be sure it is a counterfeit that will trash your files – but again, the presence of engraving does not in itself gaurantee it is genuine.

  5. If both a serial number and engraving are present try verifying the serial number with Kingston.
  6. If Kingston cannot verify the serial number then you have a fake capacity counterfeit and your data will become lost or corrupted after a while.

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.

Test memory cards and flash drives from dspe2650 with h2testw

leave a comment »

We wondered whether the Corsair flash drives being sold in private auctions on ebay by dspe2650 were genuine so we decided to watch and check the seller out a bit. We think that if the seller broke even on this one then it was a skin of the teeth job.

Further investigation indicates the 32GB SDHC Kingston memory cards sold at auction by this seller all sold at a loss if they are genuine. This makes us think that the flash memory items from this seller are likely to have come from a fraudulent supplier – in which case they will be fake capacity counterfeits and fake capacity flash memory corrupts 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 run the risk of data loss and corruption.

beware ebay seller beulahy: another ebay fake flash fraudster

leave a comment »

Seller beulahy is yet another ebay fake flash fraudster in China selling counterfeit fake capacity Kingston flash drives on ebay that we can gaurantee will corrupt users’ files. The buy it now price in this ebay listing is well below the cost to Kingston of manufacturing the 128GB DataTraveler 200.

The price doesn’t come anywhere near covering the cost of manufacturing the flash memory chips – the expensive part of a flash drive. However, it is enough to build a look-alike housing (the cheap part) and put in a circuit board in with a low capacity reject memory chip and a control chip (programmed to report a false capacity) on the circuit board.

Voila! Foolish buyers who are either greedy for a bargain and leave common sense behind (or those who have absolutely no idea about the real cost of flash memory) are fooled for just long enough for the fraudsters to run away with the cash!

Don’t be an idiot, like those of us who started this and the other blogs and web sites about fake flash! We fell into the trap of buying fake flash memory – please learn from our bitter experience!! Do your research before you buy flash memory items anywhere!

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.

UPDATE 07/10/10
Needless to say fake flash fraudster beulahy has now been suspended by ebay.

acelinetools sells 32GB DT150 on ebay cheap – are they counterfeit?

leave a comment »

The 32GB Kingston DataTraveler 150 flash drives in this ebay listing from acelinetools seem a bit too cheap to be genuine so we suspect this seller may have bought fake capacity counterfeits from a fraudulent supplier.

Buyers can check whether or not a Kingston flash drive is genuine quite easily – here are the steps:

  1. Look at the back of the pack – is there a serial number?
  2. If there is no serial number (there should be a label showing this) then it is sure to be a fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files – but the presence of a serial number does not, in itself, gaurantee it is genuine.

The 256GB Kingston DataTraveler 310 flash drive in the ebay auction above from jing707710 did not sell but those in three other listings sold for the start price.

buy it now price from ebayer shanegallaty too low for 128GB DT200

leave a comment »

The buy it now price in this ebay listing from shanegallaty is too low for these 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drives to be genuine so we think this seller bought fake capacity counterfeits from a fraudulent supplier.

It seems that shanegallaty has sold quite a number of these as well as the notorious Sony Vaio leather and steel type flash drive (always fake capacity and corrupts files), 32GB Kingston SD memory cards, Sandisk micro SD cards, the 256GB Kingston DataTraveler 310 flash drive and the 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 150. All have sold at low prices and we doubt that any are genuine.

Buyers can check whether or not a Kingston flash drive is genuine quite easily – here are the steps:

  1. Look at the back of the pack – is there a serial number?
  2. If there is no serial number (there should be a label showing this) then it is sure to be a fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files – but the presence of a serial number does not, in itself, gaurantee it is genuine.

128GB DT200 from abbyautumnone seems too cheap to be genuine

leave a comment »

The buy it now price from ebayer abbyautumnone seems too low for this to be genuine. Buyers can check whether or not a Kingston flash drive is genuine quite easily – here are the steps:

  1. Look at the back of the pack – is there a serial number?
  2. If there is no serial number (there should be a label showing this) then it is sure to be a fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files – but the presence of a serial number does not, in itself, gaurantee it is genuine.

  3. Look at the USB connector – is there engraving on it giving details about the flash drive?
  4. If there is no engraving you can be sure it is a counterfeit that will trash your files – but again, the presence of engraving does not in itself gaurantee it is genuine.

  5. If both a serial number and engraving are present try verifying the serial number with Kingston.
  6. If Kingston cannot verify the serial number then you have a fake capacity counterfeit and your data will become lost or corrupted after a while.

All three use a common ruse for evading detection by ebay’s automated fraud detection system – the use of ™ throughout the title.

partsguystl openly selling counterfeit Kingston flash drives on ebay

leave a comment »

In this ebay listing (ebay item number 250702995204) partsguystl tells us these fake capacity counterfeit flash drives were purchased on the notorious website tradetang (stuffed full of fraudulent wholesale outlets in China) and that they are most likely knockoffs.

In other words the seller realises they are counterfeit – easily proved as this model of Kingston (the DataTraveler 200) is not made in 256GB capacity. Does partsguystl not realise that even if you say they are fake it is still a criminal offence to sell counterfeit items?

Anyone foolish enough to shell out $60 for one of these fakes will undoubtely find it corrupts their files.

Are the 32GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drives sold in one day auctions by butch2789 genuine or are they fake capacity counterfeits?

with 3 comments

We have a feeling that the 256GB Kingston DataTraveler 310 flash drives and the 32GB Kingston HCSD memory cards auctioned on ebay by fariborz2010 will turn out to be fake capacity counterfeits purchased from a fraudulent supplier.

Kingston Data Traveler I flash drives – colours and capacities

The Kingston DTI is now a discontinued model of USB flash drive. It is no longer made, but is still being sold on ebay from time to time, often listed as used.

Any you see for sale are either old stock or fake capacity counterfeits manufactured by fraudsters in China. These were available in capacities up to 32GB and were colour coded according to capacity:

Colour coding:
2GB–lime
4GB–purple
8GB–black
16GB–red
32GB–orange

If a flash drive of this model is advertised as higher capacity than 32GB then it’s a fake capacity counterfeit that will trash your files!

If the flash drive is not the right colour for the capacity then you are looking at a fake capacity counterfeit once again. However, the right colour alone does not gaurantee the drive is genuine – there are fakes produced in the right colour for the capacity.

Check the USB connector for engraving – there should be details of the model, capacity etc on the connector – no engraving? Then you are looking at a fake capacity counterfeit once again. The presence of engraving is no gaurentee it is genuine either – the more advanced fraud gangs engrave them too!

So what gaurentees that one of these or any other flash memory item is genuine? 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.

Kingston DataTraveler flash drives in ebay auctions from emerald48s

with 14 comments

The discontinued model of Kingston flash drive in this ebay listing was never made in 64GB capacity – the highest capacity it was ever produced in was 32GB. The 32GB one from emerald48s (ebay item number 150498502721) is the wrong colour to be genuine.

As both these are obvious fakes this leads us to conclude that all the Kingston flash drives being auctioned by emerald48s are fake capacity counterfeits and a fake capacity flash drive always corrupts files. The use of private listings makes us wonder if this seller may be aware they are fakes.

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.

UPDATE 02/10/2010
This obvious fake sold for £36.52. Given the response (shown below) from emerald48s to a message sent by a concerned ebayer warning the seller this is flash drive was fake we would advise ebay buyers to avoid this seller like the plague!!

Okay, I appreciate your concern. I am simply selling a working 64GB used flash drive. I know it works because I have used it. I have no interest in whether it is a fake or original as I am not qualified to tell.

Also, I am not a Kingston rep and no very little about their products, what they made or did not make. I have already 22gb worth of movie files on there which the winning bidder will get. If you want to join the fight flash fraud, good luck as every product is made in China, Taiwan or Hong Kong.

I lived and worked in China and the far east, there is no such thing as an original, just company endorsements and year on year warranty, what you call a fake you can find in Walmart or Dixons for twice the price, only no one questions their fakes because they offer you warranty.

Note, if the item does not work I am happy to refund, however I won’t be drawn into the fake original battle knowing what I know. Thanks again, sorry for being direct. If you are unsure you will get working item, don’t bid but please stop fighting lost causes, before long all these firms you so respect will be Chinese owned, what will you do then?

Seller emerald48s is right about one thing – Walmart have sold fake flash drives in the past (in the USA around Christmas 2009 if memory serves right) as have some other retailers in Europe and elsewhere – a reason why we always advise buyers to test with h2testw irrespective of where they were purchased.

As to the rest of what the seller says – absolute tripe! You can bet your bottom dollar that any flash drive sold on ebay by emerald48s will be a fake capacity counterfeit – here’s the most recent listing (ebay item number 150500252835 if you want to have a look) – we think there is absolutely no chance of the buyer being able to play all the movies “saved” to this 256GB Kingston DataTraveler 310 flash drive:

  2. If there is no serial number (there should be a label showing this) then it is sure to be a fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files – but the presence of a serial number does not, in itself, gaurantee it is genuine.

  3. Look at the USB connector – is there engraving on it giving details about the flash drive?
  4. If there is no engraving you can be sure it is a counterfeit that will trash your files – but again, the presence of engraving does not in itself gaurantee it is genuine.

  5. If both a serial number and engraving are present try verifying the serial number with Kingston.
  6. If Kingston cannot verify the serial number then you have a fake capacity counterfeit and your data will become lost or corrupted after a while.

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.

UPDATE 27/09/2010
We notice that seller aftabunnessa has listed 256GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drives on ebay – the DataTraveler 200 is not made in 256GB capacity – all are fake capacity counterfeits manufactured by fraudsters in China. As seller aftabunnessa obviously bought from a fraudulent supplier all the flash drives sold are sure to be fakes.

128GB DT200 flash drives from ebayer ljsfordey certain to be fake

leave a comment »

The 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drives in this ebay listing are too cheap to be genuine, not only that, if the picture is of the actual item then there is no engraving on the USB connector. Any Kingston flash drive that has no engraving on the connector is a fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files.

  1. Look at the back of the pack – is there a serial number?

if USB flash drives are genuine 22jomac may make loss in auctions

with one comment

Seller 22jomac has listed a variety of USB flash drives in ebay auctions including several for the 16GB Sandisk Cruzer flash drive in the listing above. This is a risky strategy if they are genuine as the seller could well make losses on sales.

is 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 from ebayer weirdpsychofreak genuine?

leave a comment »

Seller weirdpsychofreak tells us in this ebay listing that this 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drive is an unwanted gift. It amazes us how many ebayers seem to have received unwanted gifts of high capacity Kingston flash drives. Why has no one bought one for any of us?

As this is apparently in unopened packaging the buyer can check whether or not this Kingston flash drive is genuine quite easily – here are the steps:

  1. Look at the back of the pack – is there a serial number?
  2. If there is no serial number (there should be a label showing this) then it is sure to be a fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files – but the presence of a serial number does not, in itself, gaurantee it is genuine.

  3. Look at the USB connector – is there engraving on it giving details about the flash drive?
  4. If there is no engraving you can be sure it is a counterfeit that will trash your files – but again, the presence of engraving does not in itself gaurantee it is genuine.

  5. If both a serial number and engraving are present try verifying the serial number with Kingston.
  6. If Kingston cannot verify the serial number then you have a fake capacity counterfeit and your data will become lost or corrupted after a while.

UPDATE: We knew we were right and that this seller had a burning bum – seller weirdpsychofreak sold two of these “supposed” unwanted gifts; ebay item numbers 220674599565 and 220674599565 – if you bought one of these get a refund before weirdpsychofreak dies of first degree burns!!

fulton_7107 looks like a top rated ebay fraudster to us

leave a comment »

Do you think an honest ebay seller would give a false location for an item? Neither do we. Top rated ebay seller fulton_7107 is registered in China but the item location given in this ebay listing is London, United Kingdom. We think this 16GB USB flash drive in this ebay auction is as fake as the location. We would be very surprised if this is not a fake capacity USB flash drive that corrupts files.

Do not be fooled by ebay’s seller rating system when it comes to buying flash memory items – it is no guide whatsoever. Many top rated sellers on ebay are fraudsters – check where the seller is registered, look at the item location – if they don’t match start being very suspicious!!

used 256GB Kingston DT310 flash drives from ebayer toppricedani1

leave a comment »

When we spotted this ebay listing a few days ago we didn’t think for a second that this “used” 256GB Kingston DataTraveler 310 flash drive from ebayer toppricedani1 was genuine. It looks like our suspicions about this seller were founded as this seller has now sold quite a few Kingston flash drives at prices that would mean the seller made a loss on every one if they were genuine.

Buyers can check whether or not a Kingston flash drive is genuine quite easily – here are the steps:

  1. Look at the back of the pack – is there a serial number?
  2. If there is no serial number (there should be a label showing this) then it is sure to be a fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files – but the presence of a serial number does not, in itself, gaurantee it is genuine.

Dodgy ebay listings for Kingston USB flash drives from aimmemory

leave a comment »

Seller aimmemory has quite a number of private one day “for charity” ebay auctions for Kingston flash drives on ebay. We are fairly certain that the 256GB Kingston DataTraveler 300 flash drive in this listing and others will prove to be a fake capactity counterfeit. Apart from anything else the seller specifically says in the listing above:

Please note that this USB is made in china, in sealed factory package and not tested, therefore no returns are allowed.

Hardly a statement of confidence in the product is it? It seems likely that the 64GB Kingston Datatraveler (ebay item 220673379045 and others) listed by this seller will also be fake capacity counterfeits.

Buyers can check whether or not a Kingston flash drive is genuine quite easily – here are the steps:

  1. Look at the back of the pack – is there a serial number?
  2. If there is no serial number (there should be a label showing this) then it is sure to be a fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files – but the presence of a serial number does not, in itself, gaurantee it is genuine.

  3. Look at the USB connector – is there engraving on it giving details about the flash drive?

sevendays-e – another ebay fake flash seller by the look of it

We think it highly unlikely that the 16GB USB flash drives sold at auction by sevendays-e are genuine – we think these are fake capacity flash drives and that anyone who uses one will find it corrupts files after a while.

Kingston DataTraveler 101 flash drives from ebayer shabnamahmad

leave a comment »

The Kingston DataTraveler 101 flash drive is a discontinued model and we are sure it was never produced in capacities higher than 16GB so we are pretty certain that the 32GB flash drives in this buy it now listing from ebayer shabnamahmad are fake capacity counterfeits, and a fake capacity flash drive corrupts files. The same applies to the 64GB one (ebay item number 330474582584) listed at auction by this seller.

32GB Kingston flash drives from ebayer kara_10 a bargain or fake?

The buy it now price in this ebay listing from kara_10 for 32GB Kingston DataTravler G2 flash drives seems rather too low to us. Either they are a great bargain if they are genuine or they are fake capacity counterfeits from a fraudulent supplier.

wizzkidd23 lists obvously fake 512GB flash drive on ebay

As there as not as yet any genuine 512GB USB flash drives and given that all Sony Vaio flash drives are fakes manufactured by fraudsters in China we can say without a shadow of doubt that this flash drive listed on ebay by wizzkidd23 is a fake that corrupts files. If the Kingston flash drives from this seller came from the same source they will be fake capacity counterfeits.

leave a comment »

Seller santanwmenos has auctions on ebay for 32GB and 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drives and 32GB Kingston memory cards. We have a feeling they may have come from a fraudulent supplier. If so they will be fake capacity counterfeits which corrupt files.
