Possibly counterfeit evo plus 256gb

JUMP TO SOLUTION

Looking for an official statement so I can report the seller.

 

I immediately had a weird feeling about this card. Especialy the poorly made/printed SD adapter wich does not even detect the sd card. Also note I forgot to picture the back of the SD adapter but It completly blank (no molded Samsung logo) and I did read somewhere the genuine adapter was supposed to have the logo. The back of the chip also read "Made in Taiwan", which I think is the biggest giveaway of a counterfeit product.

 

Basically the card was slow and causing problems in my Nintendo Switch so I decided to run the fakeflashtest quick test. It failed and the card almost stopped working completly.

 

The card error if I try to format it in Windows.

Diskpart report a CRC error if I try to clean the volume

Custom Fat32 format tools fails with write errors.

 

Here are some pictures so you can help me identity if this is a counterfeit or simply a defective unit. Thanks
