Fighting flash fraud on Ebay

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

This 32GB Kingston sold on ebay may be counterfeit.

with one comment


We suspect that the 32GB Kingston DataTraveler flash drives sold on ebay by techs10. Normally a buyer would be able to check the serial number with Kingston but as these were sold without packaging they will not be able to do so in this case.

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. This seller has had a 32gb Dt150 removed by ebay after pressure from Kingston.

    It appears the seller was not content with that and has gone ahead and relisted another 32gb DT150.

    Funny how the seller has no packaging for this drive either, therefore no serial number to check.

    Simple, this seller is a fraudster. Avoid.
