Ebayer lists job lot of 10 64GB Kingston USB flash drives

leave a comment »

An ebayer who apparently found 10 “64GB” Kingston USB flash drives in the garage of his new house has listed them on ebay as a job lot. Anyone who uses these will end up losing all their files after a while. The seller was sent a warning about these by an ebayer but may not have read the message yet. We can only hope that xenbobo sees the warning message before the auction ends and removes them from sale.
UPDATE (11.45pm 5th March)
Either xenbobo did not read the warning messages sent by an ebayer before the auction ended, or chose to ignore them as the 10 fake flash drives in this job lot apparently sold for £83 plus £6 postage. We can only hope that the seller now contacts the buyer to cancel the sale of these fake items. If not, the seller will have broken the law. It is a criminal offence to sell counterfeit and fake items. If the buyer receives the items, discovers they are fake and contacts the police the seller could be arrested, prosecuted in a court of law and sent to jail as a number of laws will have been broken in this sale.
