Counterfeit SD cards at Wish and Geek

35 of 40 Wish reviews

Do not purchase memory cards from Wish or their alternate app Geek.

The other review is correct I believe in that there are many sellers that peddle their product through Wish.Anyway, the memory cards sold are fake.

For some, the prices alone should alert you. I think the current price for a real 128 GB class 10 card is close to $1000, but Wish is selling them for around $10. No matter the size, most of the memory cards are only 7-8 GB of actual memory but have been hacked to read as larger. To a computer/phone/other device they will appear to be the advertised size.

Once you fill the actual memory, anything else you try to write to the card is lost. You may see the file names listed, but an error saying the files are lost or corrupt will come up if you try to access them. When you ask for a refund you are told to mail the fake memory back. They know that for most of the items they sell the return shipping to China is prohibitive.

In my experience, they will also give you the run-around and then tell you that it is past the allowed time for returns.

Once the time ran out they wouldn't respond to any direct questions, they would just send back the same form letter email saying that it was passed for a refund and there was nothing they could do.

If you have bought flash memory from Wish (or anywhere for that matter), download and run a program called H2TestW.H2TestW will show you the real size and read/write speeds of your flash memory.

What are you talking about?
Ive bought several SD Cards both for myself, family and friends as well as a bluetooth speaker and they all work fine.
You should not be dissing Wish but shame the sellers and post honest reviews on their reviews page to discourage other customers from being scammed.

Their stuff is just utter garbage. If it sounds too good to be true then it most likely is. and should be ashamed of themselves for peddling such ***!

I purchased a MicroSD card from and what is being said is true! The SD card reads in our camera like it is suppose to, it will even let you review the images, but the minute you remove that SD card from the camera all you are left with is a bunch of .jpg's files that can not be read. The same thing happen with a flash-drive I bought. Needless to say I will not being anything else from them.
DO NOT BUY and SD cards off the products are fake!
