Posted on April 15, 2010 by


gosaving.net sells fake counterfeit Transcend JetFlash V30 usb flash drives at 64GB advertised capacity. The V30 usb flash drive is only manufactured to 16GB capacity. gosaving.net is now another internet site where hacked memory is sold. The list of sites continues to grow.

Recently this listing appeared: http://www.gosaving.net/usb/item.asp?itemid=980u173382


An examination of Transcend colour coding reveals that the “Green” is for a 4GB flash drive.


Shell casing are easily though some times crudely duplicated by counterfeiters. The only way to be sure, is to open the item and decode the flash memory storage chip.

A recent victim on gosaving.net had this to say:

You will find wholesaling internet sites in the Orient infested with hacked (digitally altered) flash memory products for sale. This merchandise often packaged to look very much like the genuine product. Transcend and other brand names use colour coding and other techniques to combat counterfeiting.
