Counterfeit 32GB DataTraveler 150 on ebay by the look of things

leave a comment »


We are certain the many 32GB DataTraveler 150 flash drives sold by larastop1982 will prove to be counterfeit. For one thing the seller would have made a loss on them if they were genuine. We see many classic signs of a gremlin (fraudster selling fake flash memory) with this seller.

Buyers can check the serial numbers of genuine drives with Kingston – we don’t think they will be able to verify serial numbers for these.

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.
