Posted by KittyFireFlash on October 14, 2011
The internet site Alibaba is one of the most dangerous places to buy USB flash drive memory sticks. Do you really believe it is possible to buy 2 Terabytes of flash memory storage for only $17.23 US? It might be cheap but the only thing you will import into your country is a dangerous false capacity thumb drive. You could easily face criminal prosecution and time in prison. Investigators for flash memory fraud are part of a global organization. At the very least you will be exposed on the internet. Your buyers will file claims send very personal details about you. Frauded consumers are becoming aggressive, can you blame them. Consider what you would do if you lost important data files and had no hope of recovering them. What would you do?
Cartoon characters for usb flash drives are very tempting to consumers, they are cute, they are different. Unfortunately there is a very big black market for false capacity where cartoon usb flash drives are concerned.
You will notice that while Lvjiayuan Engineering Co., Ltd advertises 2TB flash memory capacity the listing also states the capacity is only between 1 to 16GB. This is a signal to resellers who engage in fraud. It tells them the real capacity will only between 1 to 16GB but the cartoon flash drive will report 2TB to operating systems. This is a clever scam for flash memory. The listing shouts “Upgraded” flash memory chips.
