256GB flash drives from ebayer kcard200 sure to corrupt files

leave a comment »

We are reliably informed that it is not technically possible yet to fit enough flash memory into the space available in a flash drive of the type pictured in this ebay listing to create a 256GB flash drive. It seems that seller kcard200 bought these from a fraudulent supplier and that the capacity shown by the operating system is false. A fake capacity flash drive corrupts files.

ebay alert: zhangjiefei2010 is another fake flash fraudster in China

leave a comment »

Seller zhangjiefei2010 had not given a picture in this ebay listing for 256GB USB flash drives. We can hardly credit that some people have already bought these without there even being a picture at the ludicrously low buy it now price of $19.66. It is not possible to manufacture, let alone sell, 256GB USB flash drives at this price. What buyers will get is a fake capacity flash drive that corrupts files.

This seller has been suspended by ebay and listings removed so if you bought from this seller your item will have vanished from your won list.

benimkizi auctioning job lot of “faulty” USB flash drives on ebay

leave a comment »

The supposed 256GB USB flash drives in this ebay listing from benimkizi are not, as the seller supposes, faulty but deliberately created fakes which have a lot less real memory than advertised. They were programmed by fraudsters in China to display a fake capacity to the operating system.

It is this fraudulent programming that leads to problems like files vanishing and being corrupted once the true capacity of the flash chip is reached. Do not buy flash drives on ebay listed as faulty – they will trash your data.

flash drives from ebayer ambaservices not Kingston and not 256GB

leave a comment »

The USB flash drives in this ebay listing from ambaservices are not genuine Kingston and do not have a capacity anywhere near 256GB. What you will get from ambaservices is a fake capacity USB flash drive that corrupts your files once you have filled the true capacity (probably 4GB at the most) has been filled with files. The seller also has a listing for 512GB USB drives – a capacity that does not exist at all!

ilicitano27 lists obvious fake 256GB Kingston flash drives on ebay

leave a comment »

This listing from ebay seller ilicitano27 shows very obviously counterfeit and fake capacity flash drives. Had ebay been paying any real attention to what people list on their site they should have spotted it immediately. The Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drive is not offered in multiple colour options as this listing appears to suggest – and it is not made in 256GB capacity.

The DataTraveler 200 is (like most Kingston flash drives) colour coded according to capacity – and one of the colours shown in the picture doesn’t exist at all in any capacity!! Fake Fake Fakity fake!

If ilicitano27 had looked at the Kingston website then this seller would have known better than to put up this listing.

Had ebay being paying any real attention they would have realised these were fake immediately.

It seems ebay is asleep at the wheel!

Why do we KEEP having to point out the absolutely obvious??

aizaka556 lists fake 256GB USB flash drives on ebay: test with h2testw!

leave a comment »

The 256GB USB flash drives in this listing from ebayer aizaka556 are not in the USA, have absolutely nothing to do with Kingston (despite what it says on the packaging) and their real capacity is nowhere near 256GB!!

If you have been foolish enough to purchase one of these test it immediately with h2testw and claim a refund from your seller.
