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.

Kingston USB flash drives and memory cards from ebayer imp-tech

We think it highly unlikely that the Kingston USB flash drives and memory cards being sold in private ebay auctions by imp-tech are genuine. 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.

Test flash memory items from ebay seller jozron with h2testw now!

with one comment

Why would Hong Kong based seller jozron feel the need to use private ebay auctions for flash memory items? Usually when sellers do this the items are obviously too cheap to be genuine but items from this seller are not cheap!!

We wonder if this could be to hide what was sold in case of complaints – and it seems, looking at the seller’s feedback that there have been a few. We strongly advise anyone who bought a flash memory item (USB flash drive, memory card etc) from jozron to test immediately with the free program h2testw as we think you are at risk of data loss and corruption.

flash drives and memory cards from informavideo sure to be fake

leave a comment »

It seems that ebay seller informavideo (registered on ebay France) has entered into a dropshipping arrangement with a supplier shipping items directly from Hong Kong. This was a grave error of judgement on the part of informavideo as this means that the seller has no chance to check that merchandise is genuine as it is shipped directly by the supplier to the end buyer.

As this seller’s flash memory items (both USB flash drives and memory cards) are shipped out of Hong Kong we are pretty certain that they will be fake capacity and buyers will find that their USB flash drive or memory card corrupts files.

Interruption to normal service on the fightflashfraud blog

leave a comment »

It is unlikely that there will be any new posts on this blog (or that comments will be moderated and approved) during the next week – so you are on your own, folks, for the first time since we started this blog almost two years ago to the day.

Apart from the first couple of months (whilst we were finding our feet!) we have published daily reports on the fake flash memory items we noticed being sold on ebay. All being well we will return to the fray during the first week of December.

In the meantime, if you see flash memory items on ebay at prices that seem too good to be true then you are probably looking at fakes. Use your common sense and steer well clear. Most of the flash memory sold on ebay (sometimes even at prices that would seem reasonable) is fake. Do your research before you buy!!

  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.

As these flash drives are such obvious fakes the memory cards from this seller are sure to be fakes too.

USB flash drives & memory cards from ebay seller sherafgunkhan

leave a comment »

It seems that ebay seller sherafgunkhan has been shopping in fake flash land as the Corsair flash drive in this ebay listing is not genuine – it is the wrong model to have a capacity of 128GB. As this seller obviously bought from a fraudulent supplier the memory cards and the 256GB Kingston DT300 flash drives from sherafgunkhan are no doubt fakes too.

The importance of feedback comments on ebay

We have noticed that a lot of buyers who bought fake flash drives, memory cards etc. on ebay do not actually say this in their feedback for the seller. This defeats the whole purpose of feedback as (though that individual may have been refunded) sellers often go on selling fakes to others.

Buyers should always test flash memory with the free program h2testw before leaving feedback and should state in their feedback that the item was fake or faulty if it fails testing. This acts as a warning for other buyers.

It is a seller’s responsibility to ensure that their goods are genuine and fit for purpose – being too kind to someone who sold you a fake could be very unkind to many other buyers!!

32GB Kingston micro SD cards from jacky_bowen not found on Kingston web site.

with 3 comments

As there seem to be no micro SD memory cards above 16GB listed on the Kingston web site we suspect that the SD cards being auctioned on ebay by jacky_bowen will turn out to be fake capacity counterfeits. If these micro SD cards are fake capacity counterfeits then buyers will find themselves with lost and corrupted files. Our thanks to tax for pointing out this seller.

Beware devious ebay fake flash fraudster tengteng1988

Devious ebay fake flash fraudster tengteng1988 (registered in China – the home of fake flash memory, which we sometimes refer to as fake flash land) does not seem very smart! This seller attempts to deceive people by giving the item location as Ireland – but leaves a line of Chinese characters above the word Ireland! Talk about giving yourself away!

We were sure that the 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drives in the ebay listing above from ebay seller yummyprettytoes are fake capacity counterfeits that will corrupt users’ files so we had a quick shufti at this seller’s record.

buy it now price from ebayer shanegallaty too low for 128GB DT200

leave a comment »

The buy it now price in this ebay listing from shanegallaty is too low for these 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drives to be genuine so we think this seller bought fake capacity counterfeits from a fraudulent supplier.

It seems that shanegallaty has sold quite a number of these as well as the notorious Sony Vaio leather and steel type flash drive (always fake capacity and corrupts files), 32GB Kingston SD memory cards, Sandisk micro SD cards, the 256GB Kingston DataTraveler 310 flash drive and the 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 150. All have sold at low prices and we doubt that any are genuine.

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?
