Suspect DT200 listings on ebay from seller in Canada

leave a comment »


We noticed listings from this seller a while back but at that time the price of flash drives listed were close to what we would expect and the seller does advise buyers to check serial numbers and register their drives with Kingston.

However selller enightmarket now seems to be listing Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drives in 32GB, 64GB and 128GB at prices that seem a bit too low and they seem to be shipped from Hong Kong. This makes us wonder if this could be a more cunning type of fraud – sell the genuine article for around the right price then sell fakes more cheaply?

We hope our suspicions prove to be entirely unfounded. Buyers should certainly check the serial numbers with Kingston as advised by the seller. We will be very pleased if it turns out that all are genuine.
