This USB flash drive sold by mechitagloria (registered on ebay Spain) is fake fake fakity fake. There is no such thing as a 240GB USB flash drive made by Kingston or anyone else. This USB flash drive is fake capacity and corrupts files. Beware of any USB flash drives listed on ebay by mechitagloria – this seller bought from a fraudulent supplier and all will be fake.

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.

Ebay seller samcat_123 listing fake 240GB USB flash drive

Ebay seller samcat_123 has not removed listings for 240GB USB flash drives. This seller is also selling fake 64GB drives. The seller acted quickly when warned that there was no such thing as a240GB USB flash drive. However the action was not to remove the listings! No, instead samcat_123 took the precaution of changing the picture from the obvious fake 64GB Sony Microv Vault packaging to a fuzzy picture without the packaging. We think this indicates there is little doubt that this seller is deliberately commiting fraud. If you bought one get the seller’s contact details, then report the seller to the police when your item arrives.

Ebay seller matkru007 lists Kingston datatraveler usb flash drive 240GB

leave a comment »

UK based ebay seller matkru007 (a member since 18-Oct-08) has not stopped listings for a 240GB Kingston drive despite being told that they are fake, that buyers would lose their files and that selling these is in fact a criminal offence. This seller bought his fakes on – a site that many who found themselves with fakes bought from. If you discovered you were committing a criminal offence in full view of the world would you continue to do so?  This seller is doing just that. Does matkru007 that selling these could result in a criminal conviction and a prison sentence?

Can we make this crystal clear: THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS A 240GB USB FLASH DRIVE!!! Such a thing is simply not technically possible yet. If you see one advertised anywhere we can say with absolute certainty that it is a fake.
