leave a comment »

Seller ko_091582 registered as an ebay member on 1 July 2008 but there was no activity on the account until near the end of January 2008. This seller, based in China, began by selling jewellery items but has now (having got 5 positive feedback comments) switched to selling flash drives. There are no current listings for jewellery items. This seller’s listings are very careless – items 280311404858 and 280311132264 are both titled
New Kingston 32GB stainless steel Memory Stick USB 2.0 but one shows what appears to be an 8GB Kingston DataTraveller in plastic and the other shows a metal drive bearing the name Sony. Kingston do not make a stainless steel 32GB flash drive – the only real 32GB Kingston drives can be seen here.
