ebay seller greatprice* offers a great counterfeit 64GB Kingston

greatprice

Seems from feedback that seller greatprice* doesn’t just use private sales to sell what we are sure are counterfeit Kingston DataTraveler 150 drives but also for a sim card scam (selling cards you can get for free) – seems like a proper fraudster type to us. Serial numbers can be checked with Kingston to find out whether or not this type of flash drive is genuine. You can test to discover the true capacity with the free program h2testw.

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

This simply has to be a counterfeit, xuexue698 could not buy genuine 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 150 drives for this price wholesale let alone sell them on ebay for this price. Buyers – check the serial number with Kingston. You can test to discover the true capacity with the free program h2testw.

64GB Kingston DT 150 sold at auction by US ebayer at a loss?

If this was a genuine 54GB Kingston DataTraveler 150 flash drive then we think seller lindapuddin must have made a loss on the transaction. We wonder if this item will (like so many DataTraveler drives on ebay) turn out to be counterfeit. Both Sellers and buyers of the DataTraveler 150 are advised to check serial numbers with Kingston as there are a lot of fraudulent suppliers.

Another ebay seller in China pretending items are in the UK

Here we have another seller based in China with items at a price too cheap to be genuine pretending that the goods are in the UK to fool unwary buyers. As usual we strongly advise ebayers to test all flash memory with the free program h2testw.
