Posted by flashchiptutor on April 9, 2009

You can buy counterfeit 32GB Kingston DT150 32GB DataTraveler USB Flash Drives on internet wholesale sites in the orient for as little as $14 US. Imagine your reselling profits until you get caught! Police and Buyers knocking on your door. Here is a perfect example of upgrading – read – digitally altering a small flash drive to appear bigger to an operating system – see the listing below.

Recently three eBay sellers: minggege99, nuiren2008, abestpartner0 together sold over 4,500 units on eBay. They were caught by eBayers who reported them to SOSFakeFlash. Soon internet alerts were published and negatives poured in. The FrankenFlash Project websites went to work. All three sellers are now toast. Angry buyers are storming PayPal demanding FULL Refunds. With over 4,500 fakes sold you can imagine what this means for PayPal and the dispute console – it is sizzling.

Do not buy this usb flash drive on eBay. Do not buy it at internet wholesalers in the orient – especially if you plan to resell. Be very wary – upgrade is a polite term for digitally altering the drive to report a larger size than it really is. This will cause people to lose their data when they exceed the real capacity of the drive. When this happens buyers will investigate. The profit margin for selling genuine usb flash drives is small. Genuine usb flash drive sale profit is not high. Large retail chains do not have a hugh mark up as many people think, their profit comes from selling in volume, not by the unit. If you want to sell genuine usb flash drives at the true capacity, unless you can be a volume seller, your profits will not be high. Too many people have been ruined for selling fakes, please do not join them. If you do intend to sell on the internet or eBay make sure you test each model you sell for true capacity first. Chose at random.

Important Reading:

Report in to SOSFakeFlash if your testing confirms you have a false capacity device.
