We suspect that the 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 150 listed by miroslav.sapic on ebay Australia are counterfeit. Buyers can check with Kingston to determine whether these are genuine or counterfeit – all genuine ones have individual serial numbers which can be verified.

A devious fraudster on ebay Spain selling fake flash?

rul4476584

We think these flash drives from ebay seller rul4476584, registered in Spain, will prove to be fake capacity causing data loss and file corruption for buyers who use them. This seller is using private auctions which leads us to think this could well be deliberate fraud. As always we strongly advise ebayers to test all flash memory with the free program h2testw.

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

Sony do not make 64GB flash drives – this is a fake and we suspect that seller ozsiris knows it. As usual we strongly advise ebayers to test all flash memory with the free program h2testw.

The 128GB Kingston flash drive does not look like this!

The flash drive pictured in jorg-trading’s listing on ebay in the Netherlands does not show the genuine 128GB model of USB flash drive recently released by Kingston. This is fake fake fake – a quick look at the Kingston website is enough for anyone to see that what is offered here is not the real thing!!

We suspect that this 64GB flash drive listed on ebay Italy by seller poerhrt will (like almost all the flash drives sold from China) will be fake capacity and cause file loss and data corruption. As always we strongly advise ebayers to test all flash memory with the free program h2testw.

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