test memory cards bought on ebay from svdfghf immediately!

If you bought a memory card on ebay from seller svdfghf you are advised to test them immediately with thefree program h2testw – otherwise you run the risk of data loss and corruption.

This seller is no longer registered on ebay – the account has been suspended and the seller’s listings have been removed. This is presumably because ebay realised this seller was fraudulent. The seller gave item location as Southampton, UK but the seller was actually in China.

256GB DT310 flash drives from ebay seller missmars42 likely fakes

leave a comment »

We doubt that this 256GB Kiingston DataTraveler 310 USB flash drive being auctioned by missmars42 (or those already sold) are genuine – there has been no feedback so far from the buyer of the one sold on November 30th (item number 320622882488) using a different picture. That listing made no mention of the (supposed) source of these – a lot sale. Did the buyer discover it was a fake?? Is this why the seller has since “explained” the low price??

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.

Test flash memory items from ebay seller jozron with h2testw now!

with one comment

Why would Hong Kong based seller jozron feel the need to use private ebay auctions for flash memory items? Usually when sellers do this the items are obviously too cheap to be genuine but items from this seller are not cheap!!

We wonder if this could be to hide what was sold in case of complaints – and it seems, looking at the seller’s feedback that there have been a few. We strongly advise anyone who bought a flash memory item (USB flash drive, memory card etc) from jozron to test immediately with the free program h2testw as we think you are at risk of data loss and corruption.

is ebay seller amnon.bl fraudulent? Dodgy listing for USB flash drive!

leave a comment »

This is not our first report of suspicions about USB flash drives listed on ebay by amnon.bl – we think this seller has sold a range of fakes over a period of months. When we first published an article about this seller in February we thought that this seller might have bought from a fraudulent supplier in all innocence – we now think this seller may well have been selling fakes deliberately. A fake capacity flash drive (whether a counterfeit brand name item or a generic fake) always corrupts files after a while.

The picture in this ebay listing appears to have been doctored to remove evidence that these are probably fake capacity counterfeit Sandisk flash drives.

It looks as though the places where Sandisk cruzer micro flash drives have markings giving the model and capacity have been badly edited in photoshop (or some other image editing program) to erase these markings. If we are right (and we think we are) then this is pretty certain to be a case of deliberate fraud.

We advise anyone who bought a flash drive that fails testing with h2testw from amnon.bl to leave a negative comment for the seller and open a paypal case immediately. If you already left positive feedback then leave a follow-up comment to warn other buyers about this seller.

Only you, as buyers, can put an end to the career of a fraudulent seller!

This leather and steel flash drive being auctioned on ebay by wgate76 is a fake – this model of flash drive is always fake capacity and corrupts files.

We just looked in on ebay and noticed this listing – incredibly it appears that 94 ebayers were stupid enough to think that they could buy a 256GB Kingston DataTraveler 300 flash drive for US $21.99 from love8882010. We despair.

You’d be lucky to get a genuine 16GB flash drive on ebay at this price, let alone something of higher capacity. No doubt many of these idiots will give them to some poor soul for Christmas and their poor friend or relative (thinking they got a fabulous present) will end up with everything they saved to this fake being corrupted. Thank you, Santa and good night!

Beware 128GB flash drives on ebay from seller hatakekakashi2010

leave a comment »

As well as this notorious leather and steel model of USB flash drive (always fake capacity and corrupts files) seller hatakekakashi2010 has listings for 128GB Sony Vaio flash drives (something that simply does not exist except as a fake capacity flash drive that corrupts files) – anyone who buys a flash drive from hatakekakashi2010 will find it corrupts their files.

As hatakekakashi2010 is registered in Malaysia, but gives the item location as Japan, we think this looks like a case of deliberate fraud on ebay rather than an unwitting ebayer who bought from a fraudulent supplier.

yordi1010 tries slipping fake 256GB Kingston past ebay fraud detection?

We suspect that ebay seller yordi1010 is trying to slip through the (rather inefficent) ebay fraud detection system with this one day listing for a 256GB Kingston DataTraveler 310 flash drive. There is no way that anyone selling a genuinine one would put up a one day ebay auction with a start price of £20!

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, gaurantee 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 gaurantee 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.
