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.

flash drives and memory cards from informavideo sure to be fake

leave a comment »

It seems that ebay seller informavideo (registered on ebay France) has entered into a dropshipping arrangement with a supplier shipping items directly from Hong Kong. This was a grave error of judgement on the part of informavideo as this means that the seller has no chance to check that merchandise is genuine as it is shipped directly by the supplier to the end buyer.

As this seller’s flash memory items (both USB flash drives and memory cards) are shipped out of Hong Kong we are pretty certain that they will be fake capacity and buyers will find that their USB flash drive or memory card corrupts files.

256GB Kingston DT310 flash drive in ebay auction from rock78910

leave a comment »

We doubt that this 256GB Kingston DataTraveler 310 flash drive being auctioned on ebay by rock78910 is genuine – the same goes for the 32GB Kingston SDHC memory cards being auctioned by this seller. 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.

fraudsters make false claims about viruses in h2testw – do not be fooled!

leave a comment »

Do not be fooled by claims from fake flash sellers (such as emerald48s on ebay who sold very obvious fake Kingston flash drives) who make claims about the program h2testw having viruses or trojans and make accusations against buyers who found out they got a fake and left well deserved negative comments. Here is a screenshot of some feedback for emerald48s:

Have a look at our article about emerald48s and then check the Kingston website – you can judge for yourself whether we, or emerald48s and other fraudulent sellers, tell the truth!

Do not be misled by fraudulent sellers who make false claims about the free program h2testw having viruses or trojans and try to intimidate buyers who report they got a fake they tested with this entirely reliable program. The download for this program comes courtesy of the German computer magazine the program’s author works for. The program h2testw contains no virus files “broken” or otherwise – what the hell is a broken virus file anyway??

The importance of feedback comments on ebay

We have noticed that a lot of buyers who bought fake flash drives, memory cards etc. on ebay do not actually say this in their feedback for the seller. This defeats the whole purpose of feedback as (though that individual may have been refunded) sellers often go on selling fakes to others.

Buyers should always test flash memory with the free program h2testw before leaving feedback and should state in their feedback that the item was fake or faulty if it fails testing. This acts as a warning for other buyers.

It is a seller’s responsibility to ensure that their goods are genuine and fit for purpose – being too kind to someone who sold you a fake could be very unkind to many other buyers!!

We can’t quite put our fingers on it but something about the 32GB SDHC cards in this ebay listing from boulding83 doesn’t look quite right.

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

leave a comment »

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.

We were sure that the 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drives in the ebay listing above from ebay seller yummyprettytoes are fake capacity counterfeits that will corrupt users’ files so we had a quick shufti at this seller’s record.

Test memory cards and flash drives from dspe2650 with h2testw

leave a comment »

We wondered whether the Corsair flash drives being sold in private auctions on ebay by dspe2650 were genuine so we decided to watch and check the seller out a bit. We think that if the seller broke even on this one then it was a skin of the teeth job.

Further investigation indicates the 32GB SDHC Kingston memory cards sold at auction by this seller all sold at a loss if they are genuine. This makes us think that the flash memory items from this seller are likely to have come from a fraudulent supplier – in which case they will be fake capacity counterfeits and fake capacity flash memory corrupts files.

buy it now price from ebayer shanegallaty too low for 128GB DT200

leave a comment »

The buy it now price in this ebay listing from shanegallaty is too low for these 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drives to be genuine so we think this seller bought fake capacity counterfeits from a fraudulent supplier.

It seems that shanegallaty has sold quite a number of these as well as the notorious Sony Vaio leather and steel type flash drive (always fake capacity and corrupts files), 32GB Kingston SD memory cards, Sandisk micro SD cards, the 256GB Kingston DataTraveler 310 flash drive and the 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 150. All have sold at low prices and we doubt that any are 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, gaurantee it is genuine.

Seller carolyn.cmh has also listed counterfeit Kingston flash drives (several different models), counterfeit Sandisk and Kingston memory cards and generic fake capacity memory cards on ebay, all of which will corrupt users’ files.

are Kingston flash drives and memory card from fariborz2010 genuine?

with 3 comments

We have a feeling that the 256GB Kingston DataTraveler 310 flash drives and the 32GB Kingston HCSD memory cards auctioned on ebay by fariborz2010 will turn out to be fake capacity counterfeits purchased from a fraudulent supplier.

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.

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.

The USB flash drives in the ebay listing above from devious fraudsters jayjay991 and dahongdenglong10 (below) are in China not the USA and they can’t hold anywhere near the advertised capacities.

Anyone who buys one of these fake capacity flash drives will find it corrupts their files. Seller jiaojiao168 is being devious in a slightly different way. This seller uses private listings to hide what is being sold.

This seller has two other fake capacity counterfeit Kingston drives for sale – the 256GB DT300 and the 256GB DT310 as well as the 128GB DT200 shown above. The 32GB Sandisk SD memory cards from this seller will also be fake capacity counterfeits. Any fake capacity memory card or flash drive corrupts files.

beware ebay fake flash sellers diy-paper, 2010happy2010 & lhfsale

The 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 150 flash drive in the listing above is a fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files. Seller diy-paper has also listed Sony Vaio flash drives (all Sony Vaio flash drives are fakes that corrupt files) and MP players that will trash your music and video. Do not buy from this seller if you value your data as you will soon find that you start to lose it.

The 256GB Kingston DataTraveler 310 flash drives in the ebay listing below from 2010happy2010 are too cheap to be anything other than fake capacity counterfeits. Anyone who buys one of these will find it corrupts their files after a while. the same applies to the 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drives, Sandisk SD memory cards, Sony Pro Duo memory cards and any other flash memory item from this seller – all of them will trash users’ files.

Our third ebay fraudster has really got fake flash all taped up!

ebay fake flash fraudster winneris is rather careless with listings!

with one comment

ALL SONY VAIO FLASH DRIVES ARE FAKES MANUFACTURED BY FRAUDSTERS IN CHINA.

If you bought a flash drive or memory card on ebay from careless fraudster winneris you just got yourself a fake that corrupts files – the seller does not even bother to match title, picture and description! Quite honestly, we begin to feel that ebayers who don’t bother to read listings properly (and engage brain) more or less deserve what they get!

After all, a quick look at prices from reliable suppliers would tell anyone with half an ounce of common sense that you can’t buy genuine flash memory items at this seller’s prices. When a seller’s title, description and picture don’t match, the prices are too low and the seller is in China then it’s a no-brainer that you are looking at a fake!

This seller has plenty of other fake flash memory items for you to choose from besides the Sony Vaio flash drive including:

  • Counterfeit 32GB Kingston SDHC memory cards
  • Dodgy looking generic 32GB SDHC memory cards
  • Generic 32GB micro SD memory cards
  • Counterfeit 32GB Sony Pro Duo memory cards
  • Sandisk Micro SD cards
  • Counterfeit 64GB Kingston DT150 flash drives

Plenty of ways for you to dump your data, mash up your music, vanish your video, pickle your photos, anhilate your assignments – with a memory card or flash drive from winneris you can trash any kind of computer file you like!

leave a comment »

By the time that ebayers who bought fake flash items (USB flash drives and memory cards) from fasjun find out that they bought a fake the seller will probably be long gone from ebay. Most of the fraudsters in China claim to send by airmail, and that takes around 15 days for items to arrive – not this ebay scammer – this one sends by sea, so you can expect to wait around a month for your item!

If you bought a flash memory item on ebay fasjun you need to test it immediately with h2testw immediately it arrives and claim a refund straight away to stand any chance of getting your money back from this fraudster.

Axel drew our attention to this ebay listing for a fake flash drive. The model of Kingston shown in this ebay listing from lcuents was never made in 128GB capacity.

flash drives and memory cards from ebayer claudioana sure to be fake

leave a comment »

We are certain that this USB flash drive listed on ebay by claudioana will have nowhere near the advertised 32GB capacity. We think this is a fake capacity flash drive purchased on ebay from a fraudulent seller in the far east. Why do we think this? Because ebay seller claudioana bought items from a number of proven and supected ebay sellers of fake flash memory items and seems to be re-selling them.

The suspect and known fake flash fraudsters claudioana bought items from include newest_product, flashworld777, crystalpalace1987, inaltd (suspended by ebay), yaocard (another suspended eBay fake memory seller, who also used the ebay ID yaonice), genuineness2009 (also suspended) and johnsonmall (suspended) – we conclude that all flash memory items (flash drives, memory cards etc) from claudioana will be fakes that corrupt files.
