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.

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.

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.

Bought a 32GB Kingston micro SD card on ebay from surfmurok?

leave a comment »

A buyer has reported to us that a 32GB Kingston Micro SD card purchased on ebay from surfmurok was a fake capacity counterfeit – capacity was 4GB not 32GB! If you bought one of these you are advised to test immediately with h2testw as you are at risk of losing your photos, videos or whatever once you save more that a couple of GB to one of these.

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.

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.

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.

32GB SDHC cards from ebay seller boulding83 don’t look right

leave a comment »

We can’t quite put our fingers on it but something about the 32GB SDHC cards in this ebay listing from boulding83 doesn’t look quite right. They are also a bit on the cheap side so we wonder if they may have come from a fraudulent supplier in China. A lot of wholesale outlets in China sell fake capacity memory items (USB flash drives, memory cards and MP players) and a fake capacity memory item corrupts files.

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.

Seller jack.han19 has plenty of fake flash memory items to corrupt all your data. As well as the counterfeit and fake capacity Kingston DataTraveler 150 in the listing above jack.han19 also has other counterfeit Kingston flash drives and various SD and micro SD cards for sale – all flash memory items from this seller are fakes. A fake capacity flash drive or memory card corrupts files.

Test memory cards bought on ebay from eshop_168 immediately

with one comment

We have reason to think that the memory cards sold by eshop_168 are likely to be fakes which corrupt files. Anyone who bought a memory card on ebay is strongly advised to test it with the free program h2testw as we think you run the risk of data loss and corruption if you use it. Most of the flash memory items sold on ebay by those registered in the far east (Hong Kong, China and Singapore) turn out to be fake capacity which corrupts files.

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

if you bought a memory card on ebay from11vinod11 test with h2testw immediately

leave a comment »

A buyer who tested this micro SD card sold on ebay by 11vinod11 reports that the actual capacity of the card is only 2GB not 32GB. Where flash memory has been programmed to a false capacity like this it corrupts files once the true capacity is full.

It seems that 11vinod11 is a bit of a slippery customer as the buyer was accused of damaging the card by using the program h2testw to test the card. H2testw is a non destructive test which simply tries to write 1GB files made up of ones and zeros to fill the reported capacity.

If the memory is ok then the test runs without errors. If it is fake or faulty then a report showing at what point errors in writing and reading data begins. This information indicates the true capacity of fake flash memory items.

It seems that 11vinod11 has a long standing habit of buying from known fake flash fraudsters including xoldskool, bid2buying, best2all8888 and crystalpalace1987. We wonder if the memory cards sold by this ebayer were actually purchased from fraudsters on ebay.

Anyone who bought a memory card from 11vinod11 is advised to test it immediately with h2testw. then open a paypal dispute to get their money back if the card is fake capacity. Given this seller’s attitude it is a complete waste of time trying to communicate directly with 11vinod11.

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.

flash drives and memory cards from ebayer claudioana sure to be fake

leave a comment »

We are certain that this USB flash drive listed on ebay by claudioana will have nowhere near the advertised 32GB capacity. We think this is a fake capacity flash drive purchased on ebay from a fraudulent seller in the far east. Why do we think this? Because ebay seller claudioana bought items from a number of proven and supected ebay sellers of fake flash memory items and seems to be re-selling them.

The suspect and known fake flash fraudsters claudioana bought items from include newest_product, flashworld777, crystalpalace1987, inaltd (suspended by ebay), yaocard (another suspended eBay fake memory seller, who also used the ebay ID yaonice), genuineness2009 (also suspended) and johnsonmall (suspended) – we conclude that all flash memory items (flash drives, memory cards etc) from claudioana will be fakes that corrupt files.

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.
