Fighting flash fraud on Ebay

The authors of this blog want to elimnate flash fraud on Ebay

A genuine DT150 sold at this price? We don’t think so!

with 3 comments


New ebay seller (feedback score 0) dan-software states in listings:

This is a genuine Kingston product so you are guaranteed to get your full 64GB’s worth!!

We suspect not – who would choose to end a listing early (as seen above) to sell something worth £100 for £50 to the current high bidder? Selling at this price would probably be at a loss if the item was genuine. Having sold one at a loss would you then list others at a lower start price (as below)? We certainly wouldn’t!


Buyers can check the serial numbers with Kingston – we think they will say the drives are suspect. The true capacity can be discovered with the small free program h2testw

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