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.

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

  1. Hi fightflasfraud,

    That makes it all the more likely that there is a definite connection as the exact same picture and general description was used by happy_wedding_dress_on_my_store2008.

    I have included the link for others to seen the similarities.

  2. Hi Traveler,

    This particular post was about daiweiyun88828 – google should pick this up even though the seller’s name is not actually mentioned in the post. We consider the others you mention to be highly suspect too.

    It is very likely that (as is often the case) it will emerge as evidence is gathered that these are IDs belonging to the same fraud gang.

    tiandicangsang201088 is a seller who has had a major number of counterfeit 32gb and 64gb DT150’s drives removed previously through Kingston and ebay.

    daiweiyun88828 has listed counterfeit 32gb and 64gb DT150’s, but is no longer a registered user.

    ruyuyi20080808 has listed a great number of counterfeit 32gb and 64gb DT150’s which were removed through Kingston and ebay. No longer a registered user.

    The last one on this list of sellers, happy_wedding_dress_on_my_store2008, is the seller of quite a few of the above 64gb DT150 drives.

    You may wonder why I have included them all here together. I am convinced these are all the same seller using multiple ID’s to spread this fraud.

    Look over the feedback and articles for sale or sold for each seller. You will see striking similarities.

    If you have bought a drive from this seller under any of the above ID’s, please test and send in your results to the email address given at http://sosfakeflash.wordpress.com/report-a-fake/ Your input is welcomed and valued by the team here at fightflashfraud. The more evidence gathered on these sellers, the better. This is your chance to help fight against the injustice we all suffer as a result of this ongoing fraud.
