Singpore fraudster nel.mrt.sg sells fake 128GB flash drives on ebay

leave a comment »

Seller nel.mrt.sg is yet another member of a fraud ring in Singapore selling fake USB flash drives on ebay. The capacity of the 128GB leather and steel type USB flash drive from this seller is likely to be a lot closer to 1GB than 128GB. This fake capacity flash drive corrupts files.

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.

We don’t think these wristbands on ebay are really 128GB drives

We don’t beleive for a second that the wristband flash drives being auctioned by afterlifeplanning (registered in the USA) are genuinely 128GB. We think these will have been purchased from one of the many fraudulent wholesalers who supply fake capacity flash memory items.

Is this 128GB flash drive listed by yarons-bargains really a bargain? We think not!! We think this is fake fake fakity fake! We think either seller yarons-bargains has been fooled by a fraudulent supplier or is a deliberate fraudster who knows this is fake. Whichever is the case we are sure anyone buying this will eventually end up with lost/corrupted files. As ever we strongly advise ebayers to test all flash memory with the free program h2testw.

tsa_tsa128 This supposedly 128GB USB flash drive has been listed on ebay Italy by seller tsa_tsa. A drive of this size with 128GB capacity is simply not technically possible yet.

We can confidently say this is a fake capacity drive which will cause users to lose their files. The seller has also listed a 64GB version – as one is fake it is very likely the other is too. If you bought a flash drive from tsa_tsa you should test with h2testw immediately and report in with test results, seller ID, your ID and item number.
