moore6031 risks loss if 128GB DT200 in ebay auction is genuine

leave a comment »

If this 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drive is genuine then seller moore6031 is taking a bit of a risk by auctioning it on ebay as he or she is likely to make a loss. The buyer can check whether or not it is genuine by verifying the serial number with Kingston. If Kingston cannot verify the serial number then the flash drive is a fake capacity counterfeit that 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.

Report your fake if testing confirms you have purchased fake capacity flash memory on ebay.

UPDATE 06/09/2010: We’ve just noticed a buy it now for these flash drives at ¬£55 from moore6031 so they are certain to be fake.

Seller ashley4689 has listed a number of flash drives and memory cards at auction on ebay with low start prices. This seller may well make a loss if they are genuine, however there is the possibility that this seller made the mistake of buying from a fraudulent supplier selling fake capacity flash memory that corrupts files.

zhenzhupearl02 selling fake 32GB Sony Vaio flash¬†drives on ebay

leave a comment »

The Sony Vaio flash drives in this ebay listing from zhenzhupearl02 are (like all Sony Vaio flash drives) fake capacity counterfeits manufactured by fraudsters in China. There is no such thing as a genuine Sony Vaio flash drive – all are fake USB flash drives and anyone buying one will find it corrupts their files after a while. Sony do not use the Vaio name for flash drives – steer well clear of any you see! The 64GB Kingston flash drives from this seller are also fakes as no doubt are all the memory cards listed on ebay by zhenzhupearl02.

price for 4GB Kingston flash drives from ebayer 199computerstore seems too low

The buy it now price for these 4GB Kingston flash drives seems a bit on the low price to us; we can’t see how the seller could be making anything on these if they are genuine.

leave a comment »

The 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drives in this ebay listing from nmwmfaqx are fake capacity counterfeits – they are far too cheap to be anything else. Anyone who buys one of these will find that their USB flash drive corrupts their files after a while.

fake 128GB Sony flash drives from ebayer titidami69 will trash files

leave a comment »

If seller titidami69 had done a bit of research he or she would have known that Sony do not sell anything that looks remotely like this and do not sell any 128GB flash drives. Seller titidami69 would also have realised it is simply not possible for a 128GB flash drive to be genuine at this price. Anyone buying one of these USB flash drives will find it corrupts their files after a while because the flash drive is a fake capacity counterfeit.

Beware: hehe1314a is yet another ebay fake flash fraudster

Beware: any flash memory item from ebay seller hehe1314a is certain to be fake capacity and corrupts files. This seller is yet another ebay fake flash fraudster in China. As well as the counterfeit 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 150 flash drive in the listing above hehe1314a is selling the notorious leather and steel model of flash drive and a model that only exists as a fake manufactured by fraudsters – the Sony Vaio flash drive. The flash memory in this seller’s MP players in no doubt fake as well.
