Suspect ebay seller in Turkey

leave a comment »


Seller jenga_44 (based in Turkey) listed an 8gb ipod nano for sale which we beleive was fake. It seems ebay removed this listing.

We suspect that the 128GB Kingston DataTraveler flash drives listed by the seller may be counterfeits – usually when sellers advertise one fake all their wares are fake. Buyers can check the serial numbers with Kingston.

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 in to SOSFakeFlash if your testing confirms you have purchased a false capacity device on ebay.
