More counterfeit DT150 and other fake Kingston removed from ebay

with 2 comments


A lot of the counterfeit Kingston flash drives such as the 64GB DataTraveler USB flash drives listed (see above) by dc!ect and many other sellers and the fraudulently reprogrammed or entirely counterfeit ones like those listed by bysino888 (see below) have been removed by ebay recently.


If you bought a Kingston flash drive on ebay and it has vanished from your won list it is because it was counterfeit and Kingston made ebay remove it from sale. If you have not paid already, then don’t! Contact ebay about it. If you did pay then claim a refund through paypal. There is no excuse for paypal not providing you with a full refund as ebay are aware your purchase was a counterfeit.

We advise everyone who buys flash memory items to test them with the free program h2testw irrespective of where they were purchased – otherwise you run the risk of data loss and corruption.

Report your fake if testing confirms you have purchased fake capacity flash memory on ebay.
