Suspect 64GB DataTraveler 150 from a UK seller

with 2 comments


We see the fine boast “100% Feed Back – Best Seller” in this listing from UK seller mr-memory-man. The seller does indeed have 100% feedback at the moment – as a buyer – don’t think this helps us judge him as a seller! There are currently two listings for this item from the seller – this one-day auction and a buy it now at £74.99. As you would normally expect to pay over £100 for a genuine flash drive of this model we suspect it could be counterfeit. So far mr-memory-man has sold four of these – we advise the buyers to check with Kingston to find out whether the drives are genuine or counterfeit. Each one should have a unique serial number which can be verified with the company if they are genuine.

    This seller is now no longer a registered user. If you have bought a drive from this seller, please get your claim in as soon as possible to ebay and paypal.

    If you have bought a drive off this seller, please get in for your money back now. All his previous listings have been removed. The items can no longer be found. You do not need any more proof than that to work out all his Kingstons have been definite fakes.
