Suspect 64GB DataTraveler 150 listed by US ebay member

leave a comment »

janfud

The buy it now price shown in this listing by US seller janfud seems a bit low for a 64GB DataTraveler 150. This makes us wonder whether it may be a counterfeit. Buyers are advised to check serial numbers with Kingston.

As usual we strongly advise ebayers to test all flash memory with the free program h2testw.

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

UPDATE 20TH Sept 2009
This seller is no longer a registered user. Listings for these Kingston drives were removed by ebay, no doubt under pressure from Kingston. However, ebay member johalraj purchased one of these (item no 230367630134) from janfud for £36.22 and sold it on for £41.05 (item no 190335733597) – this re-sale of fakes is one of the awful things that happens sometimes.

This Hong Kong ebay seller’s 32GB SD Cards look a bit suspect

The fact that this seller is abusing private auctions which are not intended for items like SD cards, along with the prices they are going for, suggest to use that these are false capacity. Anyone using false capacity memory will eventually find themselves with lost and corrupted files.

As usual we strongly advise ebayers to test all flash memory with the free program h2testw.

This leather flash drive is certain to prove to be fake capacity – we are sure this new ID belongs to a familiar fraud gang. The use of private listings makes us certain that this is another case of fraud on ebay. As usual we strongly advise ebayers to test all flash memory with the free program h2testw.

64GB Kingston DT 150 in private auction by ebayer in China

This just has to be a counterfeit – too cheap to be genuine and hiding buyer IDs. Counterfeits cause file loss and data corruption. With DT150 buyers can check serial numbers with Kingston. As usual we strongly advise ebayers to test all flash memory with the free program h2testw.

Royaume-Uni vendeur ebay listes apparemment faux Kingston sur ebay France

leave a comment »

Nous nous demandons pourquoi le vendeur ebay UK estherlevy.4256 inscription est 64 Go de Kingston DataTravleler les lecteurs flash USB sur ebay France plutôt que sur le site du Royaume-Uni. Serait-il possible que le vendeur sait qu’ils sont faux et il est conscient qu’il existe un très active équipe de ebayers regarder ebay UK pour fraude?

Avez-estherlevy.4256 pense que cela signifierait que le projet ne serait pas frankenflash éventuellement en savoir plus sur le vendeur et les activités de l’établissement de rapports sur fightflashfraud? Vérifiez vos numéros de série, à Kingston – ils seront en mesure de vous dire si elles sont authentiques. Nous ne le pensons pas – et il semble que l’acheteur qui a laissé ce commentaire mai ont trouvé estherlevy.4256 de départ:

atention obget ne coréspon pas a la déscription ARNAQUE !!!!!!!!!!

We consider this 8GB flash drive listed by powereseller my_1234567 (registered on ebay China) to be suspect and think it could well turn out to be fake capacity. As usual we strongly advise ebayers to test all flash memory with the free program h2testw.
