32GB Transcend flash drive from ebayer bizzeduk looks like a fake

leave a comment »

The model of Transcend flash drive shown in this ebay listing from bizzeduk does not seem to be made in capacities above 16GB so we conclude that this is yet another ebay listing for a fake capacity counterfeit that corrups files. The seller no doubt bought from one of the fraudulent wholesale outlets in China.

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 ren-ren-buy de-registered and listings removed.

An ebay seller of fake transcend flash drives, ren-ren-buy, is now de-registered and listings have been removed. We have had test results for the drive shown here confirming what was obvious from a visual clue (wrong colour band) – the drive is not a genuine 16GB Transcend and has nowhere near 16GB capacity.
This fraudster will no doubt pop up again – we’d be interested in information from anyone who bought from a seller with a different ID but the same return address as shown here:
