spring4blue Ebay Fake Flash Seller Alert – USA

Posted by KittyFireFlash on June 1, 2009

spring4blue is an eBay seller of Counterfeit (Fake) Flash USB drives. Based in the United States spring4blue sold those familar 8GB fakes but in the third generation packaging which is a little more sexy than the previous two that came out in 2007 and early 2008. It does not make a lot of difference though, a fake is a fake and these do not have a real capacity of more than 1 GB! There is nothing “defective here. You can not make a little flash drive chip store more than it’s true capacity. The only thing that can be done is reprogramme the controller chip to lie about the real size – with data loss waiting in the wings.
The seller said:

Our 8gb Flash Drives are brand new. They have superior Samsung memory. Samsung accounts for 50% of the memory market. Do not confuse these drives with inferior memory products. These drives are Hi-Speed USB 2.0 drives.

Now if seller spring4blue meant bits instead of bytes, that would account for 1 of the drives turning out to be 1GB true capacity, but to explain the other only being 512MB?

If you see this second generation packaging, do not bid, do not buy, DO NOT SELL IT! Unless it is advertised at 256MB to 1GB! Beware of those little stickers – they are the calling sign of false capacity! Never rely on any size reported by an operating system and make sure you test with the recommended software before storing any data on them! The good news is that these drives are easy to take apart to decode the controller chip and flash drive chip to find repair software. But do you really want to? Your real capacity is going to be small!
