Notorious fake capacity flash drive from sleepyprice88 on ebay

This leather and steel type flash drive being auctioned on ebay by sleepyprice88 will have nowhere near the advertised 128GB capacity. This is a notorious fake capacity flash drive which corrupts files once the real capacity (probably no more than 4GB) has been filled. Seems like the singjapan gang is re-emerging after an absence from ebay. Any flash drive from this seller is sure to be fake.

64GB USB flash drives in private ebay auctions from tcmcnasty

Seller tcmcnasty says in this ebay listing:

Ok, I did not get what I was expecting from my supplier, the led is red instead of blue and there in no clear plastic jewel for the status indicator but this drive is fully functional and has every bit as much space as advertised (64 Gigabytes) If I would have gotten the drives that I payed for I wouldn’t be taking this loss but stuff happens! Feel free to ask any questions, I will leave the drive in the retail package unless you would like it taken out and tested before I ship it (basically, I put programs pics and videos on it run ’em then I reformat with the zero out option in my disc utility and print the results for you)
The drive I took apart is not one that I am selling it is a sample exactly like the sealed ones up for auction.
If the drive doesn’t work send it back to me and I will refund your winning bid.

If ebay seller tcmcnasty is serious about giving refunds then we think all buyers will be asking for one!

What tcmcnasty failed to mention is that what arrived from the supplier were counterfeit 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 150 flash drives.

A counterfeit flash drive is always fake capacity and a fake capacity flash drive always corrupts files once the real capacity (usually under 4GB) has been filled.

32GB flash drives and memory cards from ebayer rampant-rabbituk

We wonder whether the 32GB flash drives in this ebay listing (item number 260720108553) and the 32GB Kingston micro SD cards being sold by rampant-rabbituk might have come from one of the fraudulent wholesale suppliers in China as they seem a little on the cheap side.
