Why You Should Test Flash Memory Storage Before Using. Never Use A USB Flash Drive, Memory Card Or MP Player To Store Files Or Photos Before Testing The Actual Capacity To Avoid Data And File Loss.

Posted by KittyFireFlash on June 19, 2012

All flash memory should be tested for real capacity before using. Your best option remains the free to use software H2testw 1.4. SOSFakeFlash has promoted the use of H2testw for over five years. To understand why you should read: H2testw 1.4 – Gold Standard In Detecting USB Counterfeit Drives. Download links are provided, but you need to understand why you should use this software, so read first. The nice thing about H2testw is the report it can produce for you on your flash memory and it’s REAL capacity. If you are wise enough to use H2testw beforehand, you could avoid data and file loss if the chips are defective or manipulated. We call that ‘Fake Flash’. It is still very popular. You will find usb flash drives, memory cards and mp players being digitally altered to lie about their real size. Super sizing small flash storage chips is easy to do if you know how. Controller usb chips that are vunerable and easy to manipulate are used by counterfeiters all the time. Little cheap price for flash memory leads to little small storage flash memory chips – your illusion satisfied, your data lost.

In North America, flash memory prices in retail stores continue to drop! It is a dream come true. Almost risk free, safe. Yes, buying memory cards, mp players and usb flash drives are really cheap in retail chain stores. You won’t find 256GB flash drives very often, or even 128GB flash drives. They will not be in dump bins or on display racks, they will be under lock and key. Why? Because 128GB and 256GB is still very expensive.

Survey Flash Memory Prices Retail Stores. SOSFakeFlash Requests Your Participation. Please Assist. 2012 Global Price Drop For Flash Memory? Is It Cheap? New Trends. What Is The Real Story On Lower Flash Memory Prices?

The United States usually has the cheapest discounts for flash memory in retail stores, but they are getting cheap in Canada too!

At Staples in Canada recent prices?

a. Lexar 32GB TwistTurn USB Flash Drive – $19.98
b. SanDisk 32GB Extreme SDHC UHS-I Card (Class 10) – $69.96
c. Lexar 32GB SDHC Card (Class 4) – $19.92
d. Staples Relay 16GB MicroSDHC Card with SD Adapter – $24.90 (regular price, not on sale)

Can internet sites like eBay compete, offer the same low prices as retail stores for usb flash drives, memory cards or MP Players? Almost always, NEVER! Retail stores use their power to buy hugh qualities, that is how they get their special discounts. Retail stores only source their purchases for flash memory from authorized resellers or buy direct from the manufacturers. So the chance of them buying fakes or counterfeit flash memory is almost zero. Can eBay resellers say the same? If you don’t believe us, you need to research SOSFakeFlash, go to Published, hit Ctrl End on your keyboard to get to the first articles we published, work your way back. Then decide. If you think the problem is over, visit FakeMemorySentinel to see the most recent warning on internet sellers, especially on eBay.

thelord786 Ebay Fake Flash Memory Seller Alert – United Kingdom. An Interesting Fake Flash eBay Memory Listing Tale For The Kingston DT310 DataTraveler USB Flash Drive.

Posted by KittyFireFlash on January 26, 2012

thelord786 is an eBay seller of Counterfeit (Fake hacked – false capacity memory) DT310 USB Flash drives. Registered in the United Kingdom thelord786 sold fake DT310 Kingston USB Flash Drives.

FakeMemorySentinel published: United Kingdom Kingston DT310 eBay Flash Memory Sellers gooner47red – bigplums2000 – thelord786 – bizwhizz11 – deals_07 – Test Immediately To Verify Advertised Capacity. Please Avoid Fake Memory Products!

thelord786 understood the real retail costs for DT310 256GB flash drives. It is in the listing description he used. Original Kingston Packaging? Warning about retail prices? Brand new and boxed? A counterfeit and a fake is just that. Dressing up listings does not absolve sellers from fake flash memory selling, even if they think it does. If thelord786 had bothered to validate one of these DT310’s with Kingston he would have discovered the truth. Or did he? Over 60 eBay buyers were impacted by thelord786.

thelord786’s listing description?

thelord786 Description

Kingston 256GB DataTraveler 310 USB Pen Flash Drive

Brand New and Boxed

Works with Vista, XP, Windows 2000, Windows 7, Mac OS X 10.3, Linux 2.6

NB- THIS ITEM IS SOLD AS SEEN. IT IS BOXED IN ORIGINAL KINGSTON PACKAGING HOWEVER I CANNOT GUARANTEE THE ITEM WILL GIVE YOU 256GB OF STORAGE. THERE ARE MANY OF THESE ON EBAY AND THE SELLER DOES NOT MAKE YOU AWARE OF THIS CRUCIAL FACT. THESE DRIVES RETAIL AT £480, NOT £30 SO PLEASE BEAR IN MIND WHEN BIDDING. IF YOU DO IN FACT GET 256GB THEN YOU HAVE SAVED YOURSELF £450!

Draw your own conclusions.

In February 2011, at the time fake flash memory inspectors captured one of thelord786’s listings over 60 fake DT310 usb flash drives had been sold at £29.99.

You should be aware readers, many sellers discover they have purchased a fake flash memory inventory from Asian wholesale sites. Rather than take their source to court, they chose clever ways of listing the items on eBay. Over the years some of the marketing for listings have include “Defective”, “For Parts Only”, just to name a few in descriptions for fakes. Recently a few sellers, are advertising them as “Jokes” as for fun to play a prank on someone. A Prank that includes losing data files is not funny, it is not a prank, it is malicious.

In any case, advertising a DT310 256GB Kingston DataTraveler usb flash drive on eBay, not living up to the capacity that Kingston Offers is more than unethical. Kingston Technologies immediately accepts returns should a product not live up to the advertised capacity – their reputation is at stake. Their quality for flash memory legenary. There is one little exception…. if the item is a counterfeit, not made by Kingston.

It is easy to validate Kingston DataTraveler usb flash drives. Each one has a unique serial number engraved on the usb flash drive connector tip.

Urgent Message To eBay Sellers! How Cheap Are Kingston DT310 USB DataTraveler Flash Drives Wholesale?

Posted by KittyFireFlash on March 15, 2011

Did you know selling DT310 usb flash drives on eBay is Hot? You can buy them cheap, sell them high! For a small investment you can make up to 5X return for each item you buy wholesale. Even with eBay listing fees and the percentage eBay and PayPal charge you, the return is at least 400%.

There is only one little problem you face as an eBay seller selling DT310 256GB flash drives on eBay……

Your 4~5X profit will be lost if you did not buy them from a recognized Kingston authorized source. You will be selling fakes. Your usb flash drives will fizzle and pop shortly after your buyer tries to store data on them. Many hacked counterfeit DT310 usb flash drives lock up as soon as the real capacity is exceeded. Most don’t have more than 4GB of flash memory chips inside.

What happens when your buyers discover you sold them fakes? You will get negative feedback, they will raise a dispute, PayPal might lock your account and dip into your bank account to reclaim the money you owe buyers. PayPal can have very sharp teeth and fraudulent sellers fear them more than Americans do the IRS.

eBay might banish you from selling, a suspension up to one year. Is it worth the temptation?

If you buy from a Kingston authorized source you won’t be making a large profit, only a modest one. You won’t be able to list them for under $700 US unless you are in the business of loosing money.

A lot of people are buying these hot fakes on eBay, in all buyer countries. When they discover the truth, they will not be returning them to you. They no longer have to. eBay changed the rules.

PayPal Refunds – Counterfeit Items Policy Change Nov 01 2010. What Does This Mean For Fake Flash Memory? MP Players, USB Flash Drives, Memory Cards? Hacked Memory Awareness Growing.

It’s not rocket science for a frauded buyer to do a validation with Kingston for the DT310 you sold them.
