Fighting flash fraud on Ebay

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

This DT150 sold by USA ebayer seems too cheap to be genuine

with one comment


We think the 64GB Kingston Datatraveler 150 Kingston drives sold by virtuallydiscover1823 are likely to be counterfeit. Buyers should check the serial number 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. virtuallydiscover1823 had at least 7 drives removed after Kingston forced ebay to remove them.

    The seller has just ignored this and gone on to relist exactly the same drives. Ebay does nothing to stop this. This is the second time the seller has relisted the exact same drives after having listings removed.

    We can all see very clearly how ebay is fighting the sale of counterfeit drives.
