The authors of this blog want to elimnate flash fraud on Ebay

Has new ebay seller sbeach29 been shopping in fake flash land?

If the Kingston flash drives and memory cards from new ebay seller sbeach29 are genuine this seller could make a loss buy selling them at auction unless, of course, this seller fell into the same trap as many others and bought from one of the fraudulent wholesale outlets in fake flash land (China).

If this 32GB Kingston SDHC card came from a fraudulent supplier it will be a fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files. The same applies to the 256GB Kingston DataTraveler 310 flash drives and 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drives listed at auction by this seller.

A comment at the bottom of this ebay listing rings alarm bells with us:

Negative or neutral feedback cannot solve problems. Communication is the best way to resolve problem.

Somehow this suggests to us that this seller expects to run into problems…

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.
