aveconil selling obvious fake 256GB flash drives on ebay

leave a comment »

Seller aveconil has three ebay listings for this very obvious fake 256GB flash drive – this one offering it in pink, one offering it in blue and one offering yellow. It doesn’t matter what the colour is this fake capacity USB flash drive corrupts files – and we strongly suspect that seller aveconil knows it!

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.

256GB DT310 flash drive in ebay auction from binaryterror91

leave a comment »

We think it extremely unlikely that this 256GB Kingston DataTraveler 310 flash drive being auctioned on ebay by binaryterror91 is 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, guarantee 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 guarantee 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.
