Fighting flash fraud on Ebay

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

Are the 64GB Kingston DT150 from this ebayer genuine?

If (as seller kishansavani insists) the Kingston flash drives sold are genuine we wonder why this seller hides buyer IDs with private auctions. Normally we only see private auctions when someone is selling fake capacity items. This makes us a bit suspicisious. Buyers can check serial numbers with Kingston to find out whether these flash drives are genuine or counterfeit.

  1. This seller’s “mate” obviously did not have a clue, as the drives sold by this seller have been completely removed from ebay due to them being counterfeit.

    I am extremely happy this person did not remain employed by Kingston. He obviously never made it through their stringent quality control!

  2. An ebay member informed me that this seller claimed the drives were genuine, in his own words:

    “They are real.I checked. My mate got 3 of them for me. He used to work for Kingston.”

    If that was the case, why such a low price on these “genuine” drives. Surely his “mate” would have known their true value. I also wonder why his “mate” no longer works for Kingston.
