I posted this recently on a Sandisk thread but it also fully applies here. Hopefully this will clear up some of the misinformation concerning Amazon's inventory management methods (they do not "mix inventory") and counterfeit cards.

Is Amazon still a counterfeit risk (mixing various sources of the same SD cards in their warehouse)?

Can you really tell the fake from the real ones though?

It is my understanding that the real ones say made in Korea and the fake 1s say made in Vietnam or some other country.

You can find programs that will test it by writing into it to find its max capacity. sometimes you can also tell by the capacity shown on windows(exp fake 64gb cards will say 64gb free space, real 1s will say 59gb or so)

There's always so much misinformation surrounding counterfeit Sandisk SD Cards. The ONLY way someone could receive a counterfeit Sandisk SD, which was shipped and SOLD by "Amazon.com Services, Inc.", would be if another customer ordered the item before you, carefully opened the package in a way that it could be resealed and appear to never have been opened, replace with a sealed but fake card, and then Return to Sender. This is not the same as a return, it's really meant for customers who refuse delivery of a package, it doesn't get a new label or tracking number, and just goes back the way it came. That's the only time items get taken from the package and put back on the shelf as NEW. And it's only really possible to pull off if the fraudulent customer gets one of those orangey bubble mailers that can be easily resealed, or a cardboard Amazon box without Amazon tape on the bottom, or one of the new Amazon blue bubble mailers, if they cut carefully along the long edge, not the perforated line, and used a heat sealer to reseal.

This has nothing to do with suppliers or shippers or manufacturers themselves being sent fake cards by the factory in China or whatever. The shipped and sold by "Amazon.com Services, Inc." is pretty much always the real deal unless you get unlucky due to a fraudulent customer. Amazon hasn't fixed this because face it, the people they have working in the warehouse probably don't care about their job that much, aren't trained to identify RTS's replaced with a counterfeit, and probably aren't paid enough for that level of attention to detail/effort.

If a card is returned the right way, return center, new label, EVEN IF IT'S SEALED, it gets listed Amazon Warehouse Very Good down to Acceptable sometimes just for scuffed up or bent packaging that is still sealed.

EDIT: FBA Inventory is NEVER just thrown in a pile along with Amazon's. If you bought a Sandisk SD Card from a third-party seller that was fulfilled by Amazon, you'd notice a sticker on top of the packaging barcode, with an seller-specific ASIN and it's never the actual items official ASIN. It has to be done this way so Amazon gives the right money to the right person who was able to sell the item at the price they did, or if the seller pays 50 cents per item to have all their inventory returned to them, Amazon knows exactly which boxes belong to that seller and how many were sold, to who, etc.

With that in mind be aware that people can receive counterfeit cards. Some do, and now you know how that happens. But I've reviewed so many of these cases and photos of supposedly counterfeit cards, and some customers are just idiots. The reports of "counterfeit" are so rampant that so many people automatically assume they were screwed by a counterfeit because the box was bent or the card didn't work because their old/cheap item requires formatting to fat32, or they were too hard on a card and snapped it, etc. Amazon just wants to make customers happy so they eat loss after loss - but if you know how to spot fakes, like actually, then look at reviews, the pictures, what the person's complaining about, and be your own judge. You'll find out like 70% of the counterfeits are definitely not counterfeit and the problem was either defective or user error/incompetence.
