fake 128GB Kingston DataTraveler from ebayer m_r_enterprises

leave a comment »

The 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drives in this ebay listing from m_r_enterprises are fake capacity counterfeits. The drive is the wrong colour to be genuine and anyone buying one of these will find it corrupts their files after a while. As this seller obviously bought from a fraudulent supplier the 64GB DT200 flash drives from m_r_enterprises will aso be 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 04/10/2010
So far only one buyer has left feedback about these patenty fake Kingston flash drives still being sold on ebay by m_r_enterprises. The comment below was left on 20th September:

A credit to eBay. No quibble refund following problems with item. 5***** vendor!

This seller is not a five star vendor and is not a credit to anyone – a five star seller would immediately pull listings and check the item out – but selller m_r_enterprises has continued listing these obvious fakes!!

Devious seller kelaigei15784 is pretending the 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 150 flash drives listed on ebay are located in Hawaii rather than China. These USB flash drives are too cheap to be anything other than fake capacity counterfeits that corrupt files.

As well as the counterfeit 256GB Kingston DataTraveler 310 flash drives in the ebay listing shown above seller chunyan858 also sells counterfeit 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drives. Counterfeit flash drives are always fake capacity which corrupts files. It looks as though you can corrupt your music and videos too with a fake MP player from chunyan858!

a1communication auctioning obvious fake 256GB Kingston on ebay

leave a comment »

The supposedly 256GB USB flash drive in this ebay auction from a1communication is a very obvious fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files. The picture shows a counterfeit Kingston DataTraveler 200 – a model that is not made in pink and not in 256GB capacity. As this USB flash drive is such an obvious fake it is likely that any USB flash drive or memory card sold by a1communication is a fake that corrupts files.

jixiangruyi511 pretends fake Sony Vaio on ebay is in the USA

leave a comment »

There is no such thing as a genuine Sony Vaio flash drive, they are all fakes manufactured by fraudsters in China. Fake flash fraudster jixiangruyi511 hopes to increase sales by a pathetic attempt to appear as though he or she is a seller in the United States by giving the location of this fake as the USA. Anyone who buys one of these fake capacity USB flash drives will find it corrupts their files after a while.

It is fairly likely that by the time you read this jixiangruyi511 will have been suspended by ebay for selling fakes.
