Beware Counterfeit Memory Cards Being Shipped From Amazon Warehouses
Check out the two memory cards above. One of them is a counterfeit card while the other is a genuine one. Can you tell which is which? If you can’t, we don’t blame you. Japan-based photography enthusiast Damien Douxchamps couldn’t either until he popped the fake card into his camera and began shooting. The card felt a bit sluggish, so he ran some tests on his computer. Turned out the 60MB/s card was actually slower than his old 45MB/s card.

Unfortunately most of you will read this page after buying counterfeited CF cards, but hopefully my story will help you find the truth about what you bought. And maybe even prevent you from clicking the wrong "buy now!" button. The first thing to realize is that no one is safe. Obviously buying from Ebay is not the brightest idea, but major (online) stores are also selling fake Sandisk cards; don't think it only happen to others. Anyway, here's what happened to me.

Supply chain hack. I can only wonder what little surprises are on those cards.

“Ships from and sold by Amazon.com” and “fulfilled by Amazon.” are two very different things, maybe you should mention that before scaring some folk with smaller minds

More than likely, nothing.

Counterfeits are usually just a way to capitalize on an already established brand name, that is all.

Compact Flash? I haven't had a camera in probably 8 years that's had. The only advantage it has is a built in IDE controller, but outside of that everything uses SD now.

Although these threats are more annoying than seriously detrimental, these simple scams do show how widespread hacking has become.

Tell A mason. They will take care of it. Use their chat box. They have great customer service. If it was fulfilled by them, shipped by them...does not mean it was them, that means it was just put there for storage by another company. They will investigate it.

be happy if the fake is real 16GB, but it's probably a modified 1GB or 2GB card!

Re: Beware Counterfeit Memory Cards Being Shipped From Amazon Warehouses
There are also micro sd cards that are advertised on Amazon that claim , "32gb" of space, but in reality, only have 16 or even 1gb of space. Some times your phone can be tricked into displaying the wrong amount of space available.

Chances are, if you're buying from Amazon, they are simply factory defects. However, if you plan on buying SD cards from Ebay, do not put those cards into your phone until you have validated them with a software of your choice. If your card is bogus, Ebay will refund you.

None the less, feel free to use h2testw to find out if your SD cards have been corrupted, manipulated or written over.

Reminds me of the early days of CDR's - The "X Wars" - One shop would advertise one weekend sale on "Fabulous Super HiSpeed 32X" CD Burner only...$What.Ev.

Next weekend the shop across the street runs a sale:
"Fabulous Super HiSpeed 48X" CD Burner only...$What.Ev.

And so on, till one guy just put up a sign at the computer show "100X CD Burner" $$$,blah-blah etc.

They were probably all identical units with sequential ser/nums.

Well bully for you, mate. Personally, like most people - as long as they have the lowest price, I couldn't care less if they were run by a troop of necrophiliac cannibals in the process of eating Lindsay Lohan for dinner with a nice chilled bottle of Chardonnay, and simultaneously porking her dead grandma's corpse, which they dug up special just for the occasion.
