ebayers beware: Kingston flash drives from inkcoin1source are fake

leave a comment »

Beware: The Kingston flash drives sold by inkcoin1source are fake capacity counterfeits, and a fake capacity flash drive corrupts files. The model in this listing (the Kingston DataTraveler 300) is not made in 64GB capacity, all genuine ones will be 256GB.

This seller has also listed a 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 150 at auction – which is probably equally fake. This model was discontinued a couple of months back. If the DT 150 is by any chance genuine the buyer will be able to verify the serial number with Kingston. Kingston will not verify the obviously fake DT300 drives.

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.

caishenbaoyou2010 lists fake 64GB Sony flash drive on ebay

leave a comment »

The flash drives in this ebay listing from caishenbaoyou2010 are fake capacity counterfeits that will corrupt files. There is no such thing as a genuine Sony Vaio flash drive – all are fakes manufactured in China by fraudsters who program flash drives with a small real capacity (usually 4GB at most) to display higher capacities when plugged into the computer. The net result is that once the real capacity is full everything starts to be corrupted and the drive often ceases to operate at all.

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.

ebay seller in Germany buys fraudsters’ favourite in fakeflashland

leave a comment »

Seller 2007eminea has obviously been shopping in fakeflashland and purchased from a fraudulent supplier. This 64GB flash drive is fake capacity – programmed to fool the operating system and thus the user into seeing it as 64GB when it is nothing of the sort. These USB flash drives corrupt files. The seller may be unaware they are fake – sellers should always test their drives properly!!

We advise everyone who buys flash memory items to test them with the free program h2testw irrespective of where they were purchased – otherwise you (or you customers) run the risk of data loss and corruption.

Report your fake if testing confirms you have purchased fake capacity flash memory on ebay.

This 64GB USB flash drive on ebay Germany is a fake

This leather and steel model of flash drive is always fake capacity and trashes files – so are other models in this packaging. We notice that oskar-07 bought a 32GB flash drive from a fraudster we have posted about on this blog – this makes us wonder whether this member is buying on ebay and re-selling.

We advise everyone to test all flash memory with the free program h2testw.

Report in to SOSFakeFlash if your testing confirms you have a false capacity device.

Yet another Singapore seller listing fraudsters’ favourite on ebay

fair.price2009Ebayers who know what a fair price for a genuine 64GB USB flash drive is won’t have been fooled into buying this fake from fair.price2009 for £26.03 as you can’t get a genuine flash drive above 16GB at this price.

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.
