USA ebay member lists suspect 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 150

leave a comment »


We suspect that USA based ebay seller needforpower has been shopping in fake flash land and purchased counterfeit 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 150 USB flash drives from a fraudulent wholesaler. If we are right then anyone using one will suffer data loss (assuming the drives work at all) after a while. Kingston flash drives of this type should have a unique serial number which can be used to verify genuine ones with Kingston.

If you bought one of these and discover it is counterfeit report in to sosfakeflash.

This looks like a job lot of fake 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 150

It seems highly unlikely that the job lot of 5 Kingston 64GB DataTraveler being offered for sale here by i.i.x.i.i are genuine – the price is far too low. If you bought a Kingston DataTraveler 150 on ebay you should test it immediately it arrives with the free program h2testw

Report your fake if testing confirms you have purchased fake capacity flash memory on ebay.
