As seller wildthingraystone previously sold a 64GB Corsair flash drive (item number 200567661859) on ebay in a buy it now listing at £39.99 – which seems a bit too cheap for a genuine one we think that it and the one in this private auction (item number 200569260721) is likely to be fake capacity counterfeits from a fraudulent supplier in China.

32GB flash drive from ebayer richforde likely to be fake capacity

The 32GB flash drive in this ebay auction from richforde (item number 300510336531) is likely to be fake capacity – this is one of the models regularly programmed to display a false capacity to the operating system and a fake capacity USB flash drive corrupts files once the real capacity (usually no more than 4GB) is full.

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.

UPDATE 12/01/11
Seller richforde now has a buy it now listing (item number 300514284084) for 64GB Corsair Voyager flash drives and one for 32GB Corsair flash drives (item number 300514372112) at rather low prices as well as some listings for memory cards. We think this seller probably bought from a fraudulent wholesale outlet in China.

Corsair and Kingston USB flash drives from ebayer freedoomnwo

leave a comment »

If the 64GB Corsair Voyager flash drive in this ebay listing (Item number: 180579620125) is genuine then seller freedoomnwo could well make a loss by auctioning it. We have a feeling that neither this nor the 32GB Kingston DataTraveler flash drives in buy it now listings (Item numbers: 180579607307 and 180579612436) are genuine because there is a sticker shown in the pictures that we have only ever seen on fakes:

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.

Report your fake if testing confirms you have purchased fake capacity flash memory on ebay.

If the 64GB Corsair flash drives listed on ebay by stairpartsuk are genuine then the seller could well make a loss by auctioning them.

UPDATE 02/11/2019
Seller stairpartsuk has listed an obviously fake 128GB Corsair flash drive (item number 250720456130) so it is extremely likely that the two 64GB Corsair drives sold (item numbers 250712647237 and 250713438590) will turn out to be fake capacity counterfeits.

rheorich looks like making a loss if 64GB Corsair flash drive is genuine.

leave a comment »

We’ve just looked in on this auction from ebay seller rheorich and as the current bid stands at £35.50 it looks as though the seller may make a loss on the auction a loss if this 64GB Corsair flash drive is genuine.

Seller rheorich has now sold two of these at auction – ebay item number 170551530162 for £39 and item number 170556645175 for £34.50 – so it would seem the seller made a loss if they are genuine. This does not seem to have put rheorich off auctioning them as there are another two listed at auction with a start price of 99p – item numbers 170557855451 and 170557845479

osher22 auctions Kingston and Corsair flash drives on ebay

leave a comment »

Seller osher22 has three models of 64GB flash drive listed at auction on ebay – two models of Kingston and a Corsair Voyager. If they are genuine the seller could make a loss on the auctions. If they came from a fraudulent supplier they will be fake capacity counterfeits which corrupt files.

64GB Corsair flash drive from ebayer crj54321 too cheap to be genuine

with 11 comments

The buy it now price in this ebay listing from ebayer crj54321 is too low for these 64GB Corsair Voyager flash drives to be genuine – the seller obviously bought from a fraudulent supplier. The flash drives are certain to be fake capacity counterfeits from China, and a 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.

UPDATE 18/10/10
It seems that crj54321 (see comment) is rather annoyed by us stating what we think is a simple fact – you cannot sell genuine 64GB Corsair flash drives on ebay for £23.99 with free P&P; unless they were stolen, of course – whe didn’t think of that! Naw – we don’t think he is a thief, just another ebayer who bought from a fraudulent supplier and can’t accept the facts.

Here are the ebay item numbers of the flash drives sold:

160490053243, 160490879469, 160490336635, 160489454123, 160486701432, 160486624732

Colin (crj54321) has put up a new listing (ebay item number 160495349750) with a price of £3,000.00 – presumably a response to the fact that we said you could not possibly sell genuine 64GB Corsair flash drives at the price he was selling at. Seems a rather futile response to us. Doesn’t change the fact that you can’t buy these cheaply enough to sell them on ebay at £23.99 – unless he has a very special secret??

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.

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 think it unlikely that the 64GB Corsair Voyager USB flash drives listed on ebay USA by holidayshopn are genuine.

memory1500

We don’t see how someone on ebay could possibly manage to sell genuine 64B Corsair Voyager flash drives at a lower price than a big online retailer like New Egg – yet the buy it now price for these flash drives listed by memory1500 is lower than the price New Egg offers them at.

This makes us wonder if they came from one of the many fraudulent wholesalers supplying counterfeit, fake capacity flash drives.

Is this 64GB Corsair flash drive genuine?

leave a comment »

geraldson85

If the 64GB Corsair flash drives offered by geraldson85 are genuine the seller is taking quite a risk by selling them at auction. The seller has already made quite a loss selling these if they are the real thing. If they are counterfeit then the seller has made a profit and the buyers will end up with lost and corrupted files. This seller also has Kingston DataTraveler drived on auction – we are suspicous about these as well.

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

Are this seller’s 64GB Corsair flash drives genuine or not?

ukdiscountdesigner

Seller ukdiscountdesigner previously listed Kingston drives which were removed by ebay, presumably because they were counterfeit. This suggests to us that the Corsair flash drives are also counterfeits – as does the fact that they are being auctioned with a low start price. Would you risk the possibility of something worth £100 being sold for £10 and losing a lot of money? We certainly wouldn’t! As usual we strongly advise ebayers to test all flash memory with the free program h2testw.

Are these flash drives from a USA ebay seller genuine?

leave a comment »

redkoi888 An ebay member registered in the USA, redkoi888 is listing 64GB Corsair and Kingston flash drives at auction with start prices below wholesale. If the drives are genuine this would be a risky strategy as the seller could well lose hundreds of dollars. The fact that buyer IDs are hidden at auction end suggests that the seller has something to hide. If you bought flash memory from this seller we suggest you test immediately with h2testw.

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