Some ebay fake flash memory sellers in China are very easy to spot – if you see a title like this you can be sure you are looking at a listing from one of these devious fraudsters:

New 128™GB ™Datatraveler 200 ™USB 2.0 ™Flash ™Drive NR

The use of ™ all over the place in a title is a way of evading ebay’s automatated fraud detection system – time ebay caught up with this little trick!! Devious fraudster audreytl2010 uses another popular trick – giving a false item location (in this case United States) – the aim of this is to fool unwary buyers into thinking they are buying from a seller somewhere other than fake flash land (China) – always check that the item location matches the seller’s location!!

Needless to say the 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drives being sold by audreytl2010 are fake capacity counterfeits and anyone foolish enough to buy one will find it corrupts their 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.
