This familiar 64GB USB flash drive listed on ebay by wuzhua8 is bound as usual to be fake capacity – fakes trash 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 in to SOSFakeFlash if testing confirms you have purchased fake capacity flash memory on ebay.

We are sure the 64GB USB flash drives in this listing from seller iamdordordoris09 are fake capacity and will corrupt users’ files. We advise ebayers to test flash drives with the free program h2testw irrespective of where they were purchased – otherwise you run the risk of data loss and corruption.

Another ebay gremlin with a range of fake 64GB USB flash drives

with 2 comments

gremlin2sSeller fanglei518 is yet another gremlin from China selling fake capacity flash drives. Genuine flash drives of 64GB cost a lot more to manufacture than fanglei518 sold them for.

There is absolutely no chance that anyone will get a genuine 64GB flash drive for £15! Do your research folks!! You can’t even buy reliable 16GB flash drives for this price. Read the rest of this entry »

UK seller lists 64GB USB flash drive on ebay with no picture

with 6 comments

We found the fact that UK seller kangacamping has a listing for 64GB USB flash drives with no picture whatsoever rather suspicious. The buy it now price of £39.99 with P&P of £5.45 also seemed rather suspicious as we think it would be impossible to sell a genuine 64GB flash drive at this price. Seller kangacamping offers a money back guarantee and says this in the listing:

HERE WE HAVE SOME GREAT 64GB USB FLASH DRIVES, THESE ARE 100% GENUINE 64GB TRIED AND TESTED

If these sell, then we suspect kangacamping will end up having to give a few refunds! We have now discovered that the listing originally pictured the 64GB DataTraveler 150 and that kangacamping removed the picture when an ebay member warned they were liable to be counterfeit and fake capacity.

Mystery solved then – it seems that kangacamping is probably well aware that he is selling fake capacity flash memory. If not then he would have done what any honest ebayer does and followed the advice of the ebay member who was kind enough to contact him and suggest that the seller check the drives out. Instead, kangacamping was very rude and a bit threating towards this ebayer.

It seems that kangacamping may have made up for the lack of a picture showing the flash drive by giving us pictures of himself in listings for tents! We did think of using one of these to brighten up the post a little – bit dull without a picture isn’t it?

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.
