Fake 16GB Kingston USB flash drive on ebay Italy

leave a comment »

Seller santoparello86 based in Rome, Italy, has listed the fake 16GB Kingston drive shown here. It appears that this seller previously sold the same model in 64GB. This seller presumably bought these from fraudulent wholesalers in China. The seller may not know that the flash drives are fake, though the fact that buyer IDs are hidden at the end of auctions suggests otherwise. If you bought one you should test it immediately with h2testw – you are at grave risk of losing your files!

Report in to sosfakeflash if your testing confirms you have a false capacity device.
