Fighting flash fraud on Ebay

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

We think these 64GB Kingston DT150 are counterfeit

with one comment


We think that the flash drives sold by sash-brands came from a fraudulent wholesaler and are counterfeit. If we are wrong then buyers will be able to use the unique serial number to check with Kingston that the drive is genuine. We think Kingston will be unable to verify the drive and will say it is probably counterfeit.

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. When asked by an ebay member if these drives were genuine and tested with h2testw, the seller replied:

    “Hello, Yes tested today 63.5GB of space. But no the blue light doesnt flash, which you have got me wondering now…”

    Despite the seller “wondering”, they carried on with the listings until drives were sold.
