Suspect listings for 64GB DT150 flash drives on ebay Germany

leave a comment »


Seller twinsbud86 has listed a number of 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 150 flash drives with a start price of 1 euro. We think twinsbud86 purchased these from a fraudulent supplier and that they are counterfeit and fake capacity rather than defective as the seller seems to think. If the seller checked the serial numbers with Kingston then the truth would become clear.

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
