Highly suspect 64GB USB flash drives listed on ebay Switzerland

palmtree578We came across these very suspect, supposedly 64GB, flash drives listed on ebay Switzerland by palmtree578 – an ebay member registered there since June 2005. Perhaps someone would like to advise this member to test the drives with h2testw – we are fairly certain they will prove to be fake capacity. This member has also listed 32GB DataTraveler 150 drives – if these came from the same supplier they are likely to be fake too – these can be checked with a quick phone call to Kingston as every DataTraveler should have an individual serial number.

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.
