No ordinary person in their right mind would take the risk of listing a number of genuine 64B DataTraveler flash drive with a start price of 1 cent! Our conclusion? Seller gormankens78usa has to be one of the following:

    1. Crazy
    2. A rich philanthropist who wishes to distribute high capacity flash drives to the poor
    3. Someone who has been on a shopping trip to fakeflashland
    4. Someone who needs to join gamblers anonymous urgently

We are inclined to think the third option is the truth. We think gormankens78usa should check with Kingston – each of these should have a unique serial number which can be checked with Kingston to see if drives are genuine. We advise anyone who bought these to sell on ebay and anyone who bought one of these for themselves (whether on ebay or elsewhere) to do the same. If they are counterfeit you will find that you eventually end up with lost and corrupted files.
