Do ebay members have brain cells? Sometimes we wonder!

leave a comment »

We just looked in on ebay and noticed this listing – incredibly it appears that 94 ebayers were stupid enough to think that they could buy a 256GB Kingston DataTraveler 300 flash drive for US $21.99 from love8882010. We despair.

You’d be lucky to get a genuine 16GB flash drive on ebay at this price, let alone something of higher capacity. No doubt many of these idiots will give them to some poor soul for Christmas and their poor friend or relative (thinking they got a fabulous present) will end up with everything they saved to this fake being corrupted. Thank you, Santa and good night!

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!!

fraudsters make false claims about viruses in h2testw – do not be fooled!

leave a comment »

Do not be fooled by claims from fake flash sellers (such as emerald48s on ebay who sold very obvious fake Kingston flash drives) who make claims about the program h2testw having viruses or trojans and make accusations against buyers who found out they got a fake and left well deserved negative comments. Here is a screenshot of some feedback for emerald48s:

Have a look at our article about emerald48s and then check the Kingston website – you can judge for yourself whether we, or emerald48s and other fraudulent sellers, tell the truth!

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.

Do not be misled by fraudulent sellers who make false claims about the free program h2testw having viruses or trojans and try to intimidate buyers who report they got a fake they tested with this entirely reliable program. The download for this program comes courtesy of the German computer magazine the program’s author works for. The program h2testw contains no virus files “broken” or otherwise – what the hell is a broken virus file anyway??

Beware devious ebay fake flash fraudster tengteng1988

leave a comment »

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!

As well as Sony Vaio flash drives (nothing to do with Sony, purely a figbox of Chinese fraudsters’ imaginations) this seller has listed fake memory cards on ebay – any flash memory item from this seller will be fake capacity; and fake capacity flash memory corrupts files.

The 256GB Kingston DataTraveler 310 flash drives in the ebay listing above from wahaha-2010 are too cheap to be anything other than fake capacity counterfeits and anyone who buys one will find it corrupts files.

This is a straightforward case of fraud on ebay and it’s not difficult for anyone with two brain cells to rub together to spot such fraudulent listings. The same applies to the listing below from ji.xiang1

yordi1010 tries slipping fake 256GB Kingston past ebay fraud detection?

We suspect that ebay seller yordi1010 is trying to slip through the (rather inefficent) ebay fraud detection system with this one day listing for a 256GB Kingston DataTraveler 310 flash drive. There is no way that anyone selling a genuinine one would put up a one day ebay auction with a start price of £20!

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.

Unbeleivable! At least one foolish buyer appears to have paid fake flash seller kuhred12 for this obviously fake capacity counterfeit 128GB Kingston DataTraveler flash drive.

Have ebayers lost the common sense they were born with? Seems like it!!

You’d be lucky to get a reliable 8GB USB flash drive for £8.23, let alone a 128GB one! Snoopy didn’t cope with seeing this – we think poor old snoopy may be having a mental breakdown.

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!!

Needless to say the 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drives being sold by audreytl2010 are fake capacity counterfeits and anyone foolish enough to buy one will find it corrupts their files.

benchiusb10 a devious ebay fake flash fraudster in China

leave a comment »

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!

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.

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!!

keeda9 is another ebayer with an “unwanted gift” of a high capacity Kingston flash drive

leave a comment »

Here we have yet another ebayer auctioning a high capacity Kingston flash drives with the “unwanted gift” claim. It’s amazing how many people have friends or relatives who throw away large sums of money on buying a gift without having a clue whether the recipient actually wants it or not.

Do you spend large sums on a gift for someone without the slightest clue whether the person you bought it for might want it or not?

Do we beleive this seller? Of course we don’t – especially since keeda9 would have had a lot of generous gifts if a word of this listing was true! See the following ebay item numbers from keeda9:

230527672350, 230528073730, 230528019262, 230528126025m 230528085274, 230528089867, 230528089679, 230528019309, 230528108619, 230528125941, 230528085401, 230527615729, 230528074002 and 230528095524 – that’s a heck of a lot of unwanted gifts!!

This looks very like a case of deliberate fraud to us! Normally we’d advise checking serial numbers with Kingston but in this case we are certain buyers won’t be able to verify them.

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 05/11/10

We knew instantly that keeda9 had firey pants – subsequent sales have proved us right but so far no buyer seems to have realised that the Kingston flash drive purchased from this seller is a fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files.

fake Sony flash drives from chenchunli21 are in China not the USA

leave a comment »

Seller chenchunli21 is yet another ebay fake flash memory seller in China (home of fake flash – or fakeflashland as we sometimes say) who pretends that fake flash drives are located elsewhere – in this case the USA.

The flash drive shown in the picture is as fake as the location. Sony do not sell any flash drives remotely resembling this. Anyone who buys one of these USB flash drives from chenchunli21 will inevitably find it corrupts files – probably long after buyers have (delighted with the idea of getting such a marvellous bargain – ha ha) left positive feedback.

By the time most buyers notice something wrong with a fake flash drive (or other fake capacity flash memory item) they are too darned late to claim a refund. In the meantime fake flash memory sellers on ebay have had positive feedback and (unless dozebay has noticed their fraud) even more ebayers fall into the trap.

leave a comment »

The capacity of the supposedly 128GB leather and steel type flash drives is as false as the location given in the ebay listings by sellers yuelanshi110 and guanpiguhai10. The flash drives are in China not the USA and the capacity is nowhere near 128GB – probably more like 2GB! Anyone who buys one of these notorious fakes will find it corrupts their files.

Seller shoujishoulei is using the same devious tactic of using a false location in the listing below for a different model of fake capacity flash drive – you simply cannot buy a genuine 128GB USB flash drive for £25 including shipping:

Needless to say the same model being sold by suishenqieting00 and chidanianshuijiao (another couple of devious ebay fake flash drive sellers in China giving fake locations in the USA) are also a fake capacity USB flash drives that cause lost and corrupted data:

We have both published reports and upcoming reports about many other devious sellers on ebay. The sellers in the far east who supply fake flash memory items that will trash your files know exactly what they are doing – so don’t fall for any flim-flam if you find yourself with a fake!

is ebayer omar1779 commiting deliberate fraud in listings for used flash drives?

leave a comment »

We wouldn’t touch a “used” Kingston flash drive from ebay seller omar1779 with a barge pole – we suspect what buyers will get is a fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files. Do we think this seller is commiting deliberate fraud in listings for used Kingston flash drives? We leave you to draw your own conclusions. The seller says in this ebay listing:

Up for auction is for a used Kingston 64GB DataTraveler 200 USB 2.0.

THE FLASHDRIVE HAS BEEN FORMATTED AND TESTED, IT WORKS PERFECTLY. AS YOU CAN SEE IN THE PICTURE SOME OF THEM HAVE MARKINGS BUT OTHER THAN THE COSMETIC FLAWS THE DRIVES HAVE BEEN FULLY TESTED AND THEY WORK SEEMLESSLY. 100% FEEDBACK SO BID WITH CONFIDENCE. THE REASON THEY ARE TESTED IS CAUSE I DONT ACCEPT RETURNS CAUSE SOME HAVE TRIED TO RETURN THEIR PERSONAL DAMAGED FLASH DRIVES TO GET FULL REFUNDS

The photo in this listing from omar1779 is absolutely appaling – is this deliberate? We found a very interesting picture in a listing for a “used” 16GB USB flash drive from this seller. Looks to us as though someone (now who would that be?) made a very clumsy attempt to disguise some of these flash drives and gave up! Here’s what we are talking about:

We’ll leave you to draw your own conclusions about seller omar1779, but the words pants and fire spring to mind!

Althought the flash drive pictured in ebay listings from dayu8571, dahu65198 and xingxing9967 shows the name Sony it has absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with Sony who have never sold flash drives anything like this one. The flash drive they are selling is a fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files. It looks very much as though these three ebay IDs belong to the same fraud gang in China.

Seller xingxing9967 has been suspended by ebay for selling fakes – by the time you read this dayu8571 and dahu65198 may well have been suspended too. If you do not want to be scammed by fake flash memory fraudsters in China you need to engage your brain!

ebay fake flash fraudster winneris is rather careless with listings!

with one comment

ALL SONY VAIO FLASH DRIVES ARE FAKES MANUFACTURED BY FRAUDSTERS IN CHINA.

If you bought a flash drive or memory card on ebay from careless fraudster winneris you just got yourself a fake that corrupts files – the seller does not even bother to match title, picture and description! Quite honestly, we begin to feel that ebayers who don’t bother to read listings properly (and engage brain) more or less deserve what they get!

After all, a quick look at prices from reliable suppliers would tell anyone with half an ounce of common sense that you can’t buy genuine flash memory items at this seller’s prices. When a seller’s title, description and picture don’t match, the prices are too low and the seller is in China then it’s a no-brainer that you are looking at a fake!

This seller has plenty of other fake flash memory items for you to choose from besides the Sony Vaio flash drive including:

  • Counterfeit 32GB Kingston SDHC memory cards
  • Dodgy looking generic 32GB SDHC memory cards
  • Generic 32GB micro SD memory cards
  • Counterfeit 32GB Sony Pro Duo memory cards
  • Sandisk Micro SD cards
  • Counterfeit 64GB Kingston DT150 flash drives

Plenty of ways for you to dump your data, mash up your music, vanish your video, pickle your photos, anhilate your assignments – with a memory card or flash drive from winneris you can trash any kind of computer file you like!

Top rated ebay seller gosourcing looks like a fake flash fraudster to us

leave a comment »

Top rated ebay seller gosourcing (member since 25-Mar-10 in Hong Kong) gives the location of the 16GB Sandisk Ultra Backup flash drives in this ebay listing as London, UK. Somehow we don’t think so!! We think this seller’s items are exactly where gosourcing is – in China, the source of fake flash memory items! We are sure that any USB flash drives sold by gosourcing will be as fake as the item location in this ebay listing.

Any fake capacity counterfeit USB flash drive (or any other fake capacity flash memory item) corrupts files after a while – once the real capacity (much smaller than advertised) is full there is nowhere for files to go.

There are a few lessons for ebay buyers here:

  1. Don’t be misled by the fact that someone is a top rated seller; lots of fraudsters are.
  2. Always check seller feedback thoroughly; don’t just go by the general feedback score.
  3. Check that item location & seller location match; if not, the seller is probably fraudulent.
  4. Beware if flash memory items seem to be bargain price – they may well be fakes.

leave a comment »

By the time that ebayers who bought fake flash items (USB flash drives and memory cards) from fasjun find out that they bought a fake the seller will probably be long gone from ebay. Most of the fraudsters in China claim to send by airmail, and that takes around 15 days for items to arrive – not this ebay scammer – this one sends by sea, so you can expect to wait around a month for your item!

If you bought a flash memory item on ebay fasjun you need to test it immediately with h2testw immediately it arrives and claim a refund straight away to stand any chance of getting your money back from this fraudster.

Here we have yet another fraudulent listing from an ebay seller registered in China who pretends that fake capacity flash drives are located in a completely different country. The supposedly 64GB USB flash drive in this ebay listing is nothing of the sort – it is unlikely to be able to save as much as 4GB before it corrupts files. It may be marked with the name Sony but Sony have never sold any flash drives like this. The location is given as New York, United States – absolute rubbish – the flash drive, like this fraudster, is in China.

Beware – most of the flash memory listings (USB flash drives, memory cards, MP players) on ebay are scams!

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.
