test memory cards bought on ebay from svdfghf immediately!

If you bought a memory card on ebay from seller svdfghf you are advised to test them immediately with thefree program h2testw – otherwise you run the risk of data loss and corruption.

This seller is no longer registered on ebay – the account has been suspended and the seller’s listings have been removed. This is presumably because ebay realised this seller was fraudulent. The seller gave item location as Southampton, UK but the seller was actually in China.

USB flash drives on ebay from individual221 sure to be fakes

As seller individual221 is registered in Mexico but the USB flash drives being auctioned on ebay by this seller have very low start prices and are being sent from Hong Kong we conclude that this seller has foolishly entered into a drop-shipping arrangement with a fraudulent supplier. If we are right – and we are pretty certain we are – any USB flash drive purchase from this seller is fake capacity and corrupts files.

Many thousands of people will have receive a memory card, USB flash drive or MP player as a Christmas present. A lot of them (especially if your well-meaning friend or relative purchased on ebay!) will turn out to be fakes.

Some ebay fake flash memory sellers in China are very easy to spot – if you see a title like this you can be sure you are looking at a listing from one of these devious fraudsters:

New 128™GB ™Datatraveler 200 ™USB 2.0 ™Flash ™Drive NR

The use of ™ all over the place in a title is a way of evading ebay’s automatated fraud detection system – time ebay caught up with this little trick!! Devious fraudster audreytl2010 uses another popular trick – giving a false item location (in this case United States) – the aim of this is to fool unwary buyers into thinking they are buying from a seller somewhere other than fake flash land (China) – always check that the item location matches the seller’s location!!

Devious ebay seller benchiusb10 gives the item location of this fake capacity flash drive as the USA when in fact the seller is in China. Always check that flash memory sellers are registered in the same country they give as the item location – if not then you are likely to be looking at a fake capacity flash drive that corrupts files.

Another guide is price – if it seems a bit too good to be true you can bet your bottom dollar it is too good to be true! Anyone who buys one of these supposedly 64GB flash drives will find it corrupts files because the real capacity will be nowhere near 64GB.

beware ebay seller beulahy: another ebay fake flash fraudster

leave a comment »

Seller beulahy is yet another ebay fake flash fraudster in China selling counterfeit fake capacity Kingston flash drives on ebay that we can gaurantee will corrupt users’ files. The buy it now price in this ebay listing is well below the cost to Kingston of manufacturing the 128GB DataTraveler 200.

The price doesn’t come anywhere near covering the cost of manufacturing the flash memory chips – the expensive part of a flash drive. However, it is enough to build a look-alike housing (the cheap part) and put in a circuit board in with a low capacity reject memory chip and a control chip (programmed to report a false capacity) on the circuit board.

Voila! Foolish buyers who are either greedy for a bargain and leave common sense behind (or those who have absolutely no idea about the real cost of flash memory) are fooled for just long enough for the fraudsters to run away with the cash!

Don’t be an idiot, like those of us who started this and the other blogs and web sites about fake flash! We fell into the trap of buying fake flash memory – please learn from our bitter experience!! Do your research before you buy flash memory items anywhere!

ebay fake flash fraudsters cherryrike, bellelyo and adelaoel

leave a comment »

The 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drives in the ebay listings from ebay fake flash fraudsters cherryrike, bellelyo and adelaoel are fake capacity counterfeits and anyone who buys one will find it corrupts their files after a while.

These three devious fraudsters are registered in China but pretend their items are in the USA. All three use a common ruse for evading detection by ebay’s automated fraud detection system – the use of ™ throughout the title. If you see a title like the one shown below in an ebay listing then you can be sure you are looking at a fraudster selling fake capacity flash drives that will trash users’ files:

New 128™GB ™Datatraveler 200 ™USB 2.0 ™Flash ™Drive NR

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, gaurantee 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 gaurantee 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.

partsguystl openly selling counterfeit Kingston flash drives on ebay

leave a comment »

In this ebay listing (ebay item number 250702995204) partsguystl tells us these fake capacity counterfeit flash drives were purchased on the notorious website tradetang (stuffed full of fraudulent wholesale outlets in China) and that they are most likely knockoffs.

In other words the seller realises they are counterfeit – easily proved as this model of Kingston (the DataTraveler 200) is not made in 256GB capacity. Does partsguystl not realise that even if you say they are fake it is still a criminal offence to sell counterfeit items?

Anyone foolish enough to shell out $60 for one of these fakes will undoubtely find it corrupts their files.

fulton_7107 looks like a top rated ebay fraudster to us

leave a comment »

Do you think an honest ebay seller would give a false location for an item? Neither do we. Top rated ebay seller fulton_7107 is registered in China but the item location given in this ebay listing is London, United Kingdom. We think this 16GB USB flash drive in this ebay auction is as fake as the location. We would be very surprised if this is not a fake capacity USB flash drive that corrupts files.

Do not be fooled by ebay’s seller rating system when it comes to buying flash memory items – it is no guide whatsoever. Many top rated sellers on ebay are fraudsters – check where the seller is registered, look at the item location – if they don’t match start being very suspicious!!

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.
