da85vinci auctions off counterfeit Kingston from fraudulent supplier

leave a comment »

Seller da85vinci realises that there is something not quite right about the 32GB flash drives purchased from a fraudulent supplier (no doubt in China) as the seller says in this ebay listing:

When tested they show 32 GB and you can upload 32 GB as well, but when reading, it’s reading only around 1 GB.

Unfortunatel the seller does not understand the full implications of this. Let us explain: It appears that the fraudsters in China used poor quality 2GB memory chips to produce these. The poor quality of the memory chips means that a certain amount of memory will be unavailable anyway.

On top of that the fraudulent programming of the drives to display the false capacity of 32GB takes up some more space – particularly in making it appear that the data is actually being written to the device. Other than the 1GB that could be read everything else becomes lost and corrupted.

Eventually absolutely everything on a fake capacity counterfeit like these will become corrupt, all data will be lost and the flash drives will become utterly useless.

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.

These 32GB “Sony” USB flash drives on ebay corrupt files

leave a comment »

The 32GB Sony USB flash drives listed on ebay by liaojie3310 (registered in Korea) are fakes. The real capacity of this USB flash drive is a lot less than 32GB and as a result it corrupts files. If you think you can get a genuine 32GB USB flash drive ANYWHERE (let alone ebay!) for £12.99 then you are very much mistaken.

The 128GB flash drives listed by this ebayer are not defective but fake

leave a comment »

Seller tonton79 is wrong in thinking these 128GB USB flash drives listed on ebay Germany are defective. They are deliberate fakes produced by fraudsters and sold in bulk to re-sellers who didn’t do their research properly. These USB flash drives corrupt files and anyone who buys one is wasting their money. The are programmed to display a false capacity to the operating system which fools unwary buyers.

ebay seller in Ireland lists notorious fake USB flash drives for sale

leave a comment »

Seller 2009joesstore (registered in Ireland) obviously shopped with one of the many fraudulent wholesale outlets supplying fake flash memory items at prices lower than the manufacturing costs of genuine USB flash drives. This particular model is a notorious fake, gaurenteed to corrupt files; though the seller may have no idea that this is the case.

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.

UPDATE 06/02/2010
Seller 2009joesstore has marked listings for this item out of stock which suggests that this ebayer may have discovered these are fake. It looks as though only one was sold – we hope the seller refunds and explains the situation to the buyer. If (as appears may be the case) this seller is an innocent victim of a fraudulent supplier we hope he or she manages to get a full refund from these crooks.

This 128GB USB flash drive on ebay Australia is fake fake fakity fake

leave a comment »

This 128GB UB flash drive from seller komtshengu is a fake that corrupts files. Any flash drive you see in this packaging is a fake. You can click on the picture to get a better view.

Steer well clear of any USB flash drive in this pack! Selller komtshengu may be unaware that these are fakes from a fraudulent supplier.

We are stunned at how many ebay sellers are ignorant of what they are selling because they didn’t do their research first. Had komtshengu done a little research before buying these the seller would have known that any USB flash drive bearing the Vaio logo was fake.

Sony do not sell any flash drives above 32GB capacity and they only use the Vaio tradmark for laptops, not for flash drives. Anyone who had done their research would know these USB flash drives are fakes that corrupt files.

These leather USB flash drives on ebay are probably fakes

leave a comment »

UK seller x.fun has listed this leather model of USB flash drive on ebay in 2GB, 4GB and 8GB capacities. This model of flash drive usually proves to be fake capacity.

They are sold by many fraudulent wholesale outlets – so far we have never come across one that genuinely had the capacity stated. We will be surprised if these are any different.

If they are, as we suspect, fake capacity they will destroy data after a while. This seller offers various other flash memory items.

If we are right in thinking that x.fun bought from a fraudulent supplier then the other flash memory items from this seller will be fake capacity too.

We wonder why x.fun is using private auctions as we don’t see any items from the seller that justify this – no houses, no cars, no sexy undies, no bondage or other SM gear and no medicines! We advise everyone to test all flash memory with the free program h2testw.

There is no such thing as a Sony Vaio USB flash drive!!

leave a comment »

Sony do not use the Vaio name for USB flash drives, this name is reserved for laptops. The flash drive shown in this picture is counterfeit and counterfeits alway prove to be fake capacity and trash users’ files.

UK ebay member julia8268 has sold two of these fake flash drives. This seller was informed by an ebayer that they were fake. The seller did not reply to the ebay member or end the listings – far from it – the seller now has another one listed – ebay item number 120507913366. In listings julia8268 states:

The unit has been FULLY TESTED and formatted by us, in the UK

We don’t know what this seller thinks fully testing such items consists of but it is certainly not the kind of testing we would recognise! Only filling the drive with files and attempting to open each and every one (the hard way) or using the free program h2testw (the easy way) constitutes fully testing flash memory.

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.

sparkman898

So what do we think about this ebay listing for a 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 150 flash drive from UK seller sparkman898? I think this picture says it all:
flyingpigs1

Unless you regularly see squadrons of flying pigs traversing the skies above your house you would do well to avoid buying flash drives on ebay – especially at prices far below the cost of manufacture (as in this case) – all you will get is a fake that will trash your files!

Given the recent rise in the cost of flash memory chips you are unlikely to even find a genuine 16B flash drive at this price on ebay, let alone anything of higher capacity.

Is moashar078 selling genuine 64GB Kingston on ebay? – NO!!

with 3 comments

moashar078

The supposededly 64GB Kingston DataTraveler flash drives listed by UK seller moashar078 are no such thing! They are fake fake fakity fake!! In the short time since registering on ebay (22nd March 2009) seller moashar078 earned a neg for selling fake Sony (less than a month after the ID was regisered!) and has since bought fake flash items from a number of known fraudsters.

This leads us to think that this is deliberate fraud rather than moashar078 being the innocent victim of a fraudulent supplier. We have little doubt that ebay will be forced to remove listing number 320424391335 from this seller as a result of pressure from Kingston.

We wonder if there is a connection between moashar078 and ashjaan143 who has listed the same item at the same price. We expect that item number 320424387809 from ashjaan143 will also vanish from ebay soon.

As usual we strongly advise ebayers to test all flash memory with the free program h2testw.

In the case of these drives there is no need to waste time testing the whole drive – a test of the first 6GB should be more than enough to demonstrate they are fake capacity and a quick phone call to Kingston will be enough to confirm that no 64GB drives of this model were ever made.

8GB Sandisk flash drives on ebay are either a bargain or fake

with 2 comments

kitkit85Either the 8GB flash drives sold by kitkit85, a seller registered in Malaysia are a snip at this price or they are dangerous fakes that will cause file loss and corruption.

Without one of the team buying one we can’t tell for sure until buyers report in.That said we do find the packaging a bit suspect.

Genuine Sandisk flash drives usually come in sealed packaging that is destroyed by opening it.

This looks like the pop-open packaging commonly used by fraudsters to us. Also we wonder why the capacity of the drive on the packaging has been airbrushed out.

If you bought one of these from kitkit85 test the available space with h2testw.

You won’t be able to test the whole drive capacity if U3 is present as claimed because this and the file management system take up some of the space. However, if it is genuine the test will run without any errors and you can simply delete the test files.

david2008y

Canadian seller david2008y seems to have bought flash drives from one of the many fraudulent wholesalers in the orient who sell fake capacity and counterfeit memory items.

We think the flash drives being sold by this ebay member will prove to be fake capacity (probably 2GB flash drives programmed to appear to be 16GB when you look at the properties) – the seller may be entirely unaware that these are likely to be fake capacity.

Please folks – if you plan to sell flash memory (USB flash drives/pens, memory cards/sticks or MP players) on ebay do your research first! You cannot buy genuine 16GB items at prices which allow you to sell at this price!! You will be selling fakes which eventually cause your buyers to find their files are lost/corrupted.

As usual we strongly advise ebayers to test all flash memory with the free program h2testw.

Report in to SOSFakeFlash if your testing confirms you have a false capacity device.

We suspect this ebay seller from Thailand is a fraudster

iam_abookworm

We think iam_abookworm is a deliberate fraudster with some computer knowledge who knows how to get around automated fraud detection systems. We think that it would be closer to the truth if the seller took “book” out of the ID!

It seems that iam_abookworm didn’t reckon with the real people in the frankenflash project who detect fraud (rather than computer systems most companies rely on!) – we have little doubt that if buyers check serial numbers with Kingston that they will say the cannot verify the drive as genuine.

As usual we strongly advise ebayers to test all flash memory with the free program h2testw.

elaishop

The flash drive show here is the fraudsters favourite! Why? It is easy to re-program to any fake capacity the fraudsters like – take your pick! Would you like a 4GB fake? Perhaps you’d prefer an 8GB or 16GB fake? If you really want to lose a lot of data our friends in Hong Kong can even reprogram these to 64GB or higher so that you can lose as many files as you like!

This seller also offers the journalist’s dream item:

elaishop_audio

If the journos in the frankenflash project didn’t think these were fake they would be rushing to buy one from elaishop at this price!!

If you bought a flash memory item from elaishop and ran into problems with it do not beleive any guff about it being faulty! This is deliberate fraud – test your drive with the free program h2testw, report in to sosfakeflash, file a claim with paypal and report the seller to ebay – link to h2testw download page (free program from German computer magazine) is provided on our article about the program

Please report in to sosfakeflash with all the information requested in this article – don’t leave it on the site – send it to the email address – then it can go into our fake flash database so that an alert can be issued on the Internet.

Are the flash memory items sold by this UK ebayer genuine?

with 18 comments

UK ebay member bits.bobs73_123 lists a lot of Kingston flash memory items for sale at auction – over 400 have been sold. We don’t see how this seller can be making a profit at the prices that most seem to sell at if they are geninunely the capacity advertised. It could be that this ebay member has bought counterfeits from a fraudulent wholesaler.

So far the only negative comment has been from a buyer who didn’t receive the item, but this could simply mean that buyers are not testing their items. As always we strongly advise ebayers to test all flash memory with the free program h2testw.

This seller claims to have genuine Kingston – we think not.

pccomp2009

Seller pccomp2009 says in the listing:

BRAND NEW & SEALED – DONT BE FOOLED BY CHEAP FAKES!
Here you are bidding on a brand new and sealed Kingston Data Traveler 150 64GB USB Flash Drive. This is a genuine Kingston product so you are guaranteed to get you full 64GB’s worth!

Do we think this is true? No we don’t – we think the seller is fooling people with cheap fakes! Funnily enough pccomp2009 has used the exact wording previously used by dan-software in listings. Dan software and pccomp2009 have something else in common – ending a listing early to sell for less than we think you’d pay for these wholesale if they were genuine.

We expect that pccomp2009 will soon have another thing in common with dan-software -deregistration from ebay for selling counterfeit Kingston flash drives! Maybe pccomp2009 IS dan-software with a new ID? We trust the buyer will check the serial number with Kingston – we would fall of our chairs with shock if they said it was a genuine drive!

Buyers can check the real capacity with the free program h2testw.The computer’s operating system will only show what the control chip has been programmed to tell the computer – never beleive what you see!

This Sandisk flash drive seems a little too cheap to be kosher

leave a comment »

novilive

Given that the price of this flash drive direct from sandisk is £17.99 we don’t see how anyone could obtain them cheaply enough to sell at this price if they were genuine. We suspect that ebay seller novilive bought these from a fraudulent wholesaler supplying counterfeits. The seller may be unaware of this. A number of sellers seem to offering these at similarly low prices. If you bought a Sandisk Cruzer drive on ebay for a low price there is a good chance it is counterfeit and fake capacity.

You can check the true capacity of flash memory items with the free program h2testw. Fake capacity items look as though they have the capacity stated when you look at them in the operating system due to fraudulent programming so never trust what the operating system says. Test your flash memory items before you save anything to them – you are at risk of file loss and corruption if you have a fake.

A suspect 64GB Kingston DT150 listed by new ebayer in the USA

leave a comment »

gormankens78usa

No ordinary person in their right mind would take the risk of listing a number of genuine 64B DataTraveler flash drive with a start price of 1 cent! Our conclusion? Seller gormankens78usa has to be one of the following:

    1. Crazy
    2. A rich philanthropist who wishes to distribute high capacity flash drives to the poor
    3. Someone who has been on a shopping trip to fakeflashland
    4. Someone who needs to join gamblers anonymous urgently

We are inclined to think the third option is the truth. We think gormankens78usa should check with Kingston – each of these should have a unique serial number which can be checked with Kingston to see if drives are genuine. We advise anyone who bought these to sell on ebay and anyone who bought one of these for themselves (whether on ebay or elsewhere) to do the same. If they are counterfeit you will find that you eventually end up with lost and corrupted files.

pinkauctioneers

UK ebay seller pinkauctioneers has a feedback score of minus 1 and has not bought or sold on ebay for the last year. Whilst we wonder what this ebayer did to end up with a negative score the thing that made us suspect this is a counterfeit is the low buy it now price. Nobody could possibly sell a genuine one at this price so we conclude that it is bound to be a fake. A test with the free program h2testw will no doubt show that we are correct in our thoughts about this item.

Are these Kingston DataTraveler 150 genuine or fake?

with 4 comments

ryder705

UK ebay seller ryder705 has listed 20 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 150 flash drives for sale. We cannot tell from the very small picture whether they are counterfeit or genuine but we think they may be counterfeit as almost half of them are listed at auction with a start price below the wholesale cost. Either the seller is willing to take a big gamble by risking buyers winning them at less than cost or they are counterfeits purchased from a fraudulent wholsaler. If you bought one of these you can check whether they are counterfeit by contacting Kingston – genuine ones have individual serial numbers. The program h2testw can be used to determine the true capacity of flash drives.

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.

UK ebayer lists “faulty” 64GB flash drives for sale

with 2 comments

UK ebayer streetfiction (feedback score: 1) has listed “faulty” 64GB flash drives on ebay. We do not think they are faulty we think they are fake capacity.streetfiction

Here is what the seller says:

These USB’s are sold as faulty, some do not like being formatted;
I don’t know what the problem is but when I formatted one it gave me all kinds of problems..
If you just want to store info AND TREAT IT AS A UNWRITABLE DISK it is fine, but if you try and format it, you MAY have a problem.
I am not taking returns, or bad feed back for this item, so I am starting with no reserve.
THIS MEANS; NO ITEM NOT AS DESCRIBED TO PAYPAL.
THIS MEANS; NO NEGATIVE FEED BACK.
IF YOU DON’T WANT TO TAKE THE RISK DO NOT BID.

Buyers will be taking a very large risk! What is the real capacity of these drives? 16GB? 8GB? 4GB? 2GB? 1GB? Less than 1GB? The seller is listing these at auction with a start price of 99p but an enormous postal charge of £9.49! As you can get a real 16GB for about £22 real 8GB drives for £15 or less, a real 4GB for under £10, 4GB for around £7.50, 2GB at around £5 and 1GB for £4 or less (including postage) we don’t think risking a punt on a flash drive of an unknown capacity that you might not even be able to fix is worthwhile!

Refined fake sold on ebay Ireland by seller registered in China

leave a comment »

A seller registered in China tried to fool ebayers that fake 16GB flash drives being sold were located in Ireland. This is one of the little tricks used by fraudsters to lull ebay buyers into a false sense of security – make it look as though the item is in a “safe” country. There is no safe country!! Only the very few safe sellers we have found – you can see the tiny list on sosfakeflash.

Ebay has now removed listings for the fakes sold by sfrankish5872 – so they are obviously aware the drives were fake. Unfortunately this means that buyers are left somewhat in the lurch as they cannot access the item they bought. If you bought a flash drive from sfrankish5872 test it immediately with h2testw.

Report in to SOSFakeFlash If your testing confirms you have a false capacity device. The information provided by buyers about fake capacity devices is stored in a database. Ebay and Paypal are aware of this and it is one of the things that forces them to act against sellers. If a seller is in the database it helps buyers get refunds.

Read the refund advice given on sosfakeflash then pursue a refund through paypal. Do not give up – paypal often puts obstacles in your way – the advice on sosfakeflash will help you overcome these.

Just exactly what is this ebay member in Australia selling???

leave a comment »

okik_2005

Just exactly what is ebay member okik_2005 selling in this listing seen on ebay Canada?? The picture shows a 16GB Kingston flash drive (there is no 32GB in this particular model) – the wording in the listing states:

Please note photo indicated the appearance of the USB Only. Never been used.
Features/Specifications:

    Capacities – 32GB green
    Dimension – 2.30 x 0.93 x 0.35v*38mmx23.6mmx9.9mm)
    Operating Temperatures 0 to 60c / 32 to 140 F
    Convenient -pocket sized for easy transportability
    Simple -Just plug into a USB Port
    Practical – no cap to lose, USB connector protected within case
    Fashionable – Available in multiple colors by capacity

So – is the flash drive’s colour code dark red or is it green? – green means 2GB not 32GB!
Does it have a cap as shown in the picture or is it retractable as suggested in the description?
Just what exactly is on sale here? One thing is for sure – I wouldn’t bid on this!

If you bought this item you should test immediately with h2testw to find out what you really got.

Is UK ebay seller silverfire_sales a fraudster?

leave a comment »

We have been alerted to the possibility that UK ebay seller silverfire_sales may be a fraudster. This seller’s listing says:
*This item is shipped from China, Import Tax may need to be paid*
High capacity 32GB USB flash drive covered in a metal and high quality faux leather casing for safe and easy portability.

With its attractive design, inspired directly from traditional leather knife holders, this little USB flash drive easily fits into your pocket or on a lanyard / keychain, and will carry your valuable digital files around with you wherever you go.

This suggests that silverfire_sales is using dropshipping. Dropshipping is a system in which the seller never actually sees the items they are selling. Items are delivered directly from the supplier – providing ample opporunity for fraudulent wholesalers to land the flack on the person (in this case silverfire_sales) who lists the item for sale on ebay or elsewhere.

An ebayer tried to warn silverfire_sales about this possibility but got a rather rude response. Here is the message the ebayer sent to this seller:

Hi, I guess this is a dropshipping item. Many such items are fakes. If your items (like most flash drives of 8GB and over coming out of China) turn out to be fakes you could end up with a host of angry buyers and a load of negative feedback. I suggest you get your supplier to send you one so that you can check it is genuine. There is a small free program called h2testw you can test flash memory items with quickly and easily. I test all my flash memory with this program and have found it very reliable. All the best,
Helen

Here is the response from silverfire_sales:
Quit sending spam, no one wants your crappy software other than idiots.

Seems like silverfire_sales either didn’t understand the issue or is a deliberate fraudster. We await developments.

Another UK ebayer falls victim to fraud on dhgate.com

leave a comment »

Many ebayers in the UK have bought fake flash drives from Chinese wholesalers on sites like dhgate.com – one such ebayer realised there was something wrong but (not having any computer knowledge) listed the 10 fakes he bought from a seller on dhgate.com for sale on ebay as follows:

vaio_dhgate_victim This is an auction for a 10 x 512gb microvault U.S.B flash drives.
These items are being sold as faulty, I dont know whats wrong with them you can put stuff on them but cannot play it back? maybe a cheap fix for some one with knowledge??
Properties say they are 500gb each ?i have loaded one with over 8gb and it didnt say it was full? so i dont know what size they are??

We strongly advise ebayers who buy flash drives from any source with a view to re-selling on ebay to bone up on flash drives before buying so that you know what’s really available. Avoid drop-shipping unless you have previously dealt with the supplier and know they are trustworthy. Always check the drives with h2testw before approving payment to sellers on sites like allibaba.com and dhgate.com – and certainly before  listing them for sale on ebay! Better still, avoid these sites altogether.

Hello eBay, it seems you are finally paying attention. We wonder why you suspended our accounts for warning ebay members about fraud. It’s a pity you were not so quick to suspend the fraudsters!! If you want us to help you then you should restore all the accounts that warnings about fraud were sent from. You should also refund all those who were defrauded! Then we will work with you.

Suspect sellers on ebay

leave a comment »

All those selling flash drives on ebay with listing which keep buyer IDs private at the end of auctions or when an item is sold on buy it now are automatically considered to be suspect sellers by fightflashfraud. SOME SELLERS LISTED UNDER THE SUSPECT CATEGORY MAY ACUALLY BE INNOCENT OF FRAUD
They may have innocently bought counterfeit and/or fake capacity drives from a supplier. Both fightflashfraud and sosfakeflash have come across this situation. However, those who keep buyer IDs private are fairly certain to be guilty. See the page about suspect sellers for more info.

Is disubs the most successful ebay fraudster?

with one comment

Only one confirmed fake flash item from disubs has been reported to the frankenflash project, yet there are many comments indicating that disubs has supplied fake or faulty flash memory items to many buyers. The apparently fake or faulty items that got disubs negative feedback on ebay include USB flash drives, SD cards and MP3/MP4 players – Pay attention ebayers! Always look at seller’s negative feedback – if there is ANY NEG for a seller offering a flash memory item do not bid or buy! Check seller out by looking at the fraudster list on sosfakeflash and checking with previous buyers – only then should you consider buying. If anyone reading this bought a flash memory item from disubs please test your item with h2testw (download free from testing category) and send results along with seller ID and item number to one of these email addresses:
For usb flash drives: sosfakeflash@gmail.com or for other flash items fightflashfraud@gmail.com
