Auctions on ebay Germany for suspect 64GB DataTraver drives

leave a comment »


We think these 64GB Kingston DataTraveler drives being auctioned on ebay by nancyskalle will turn out to be counterfeit and fake capacity. The seller may be unaware of the big problem with counterfeit Kingston flash drives being sold by fraudulent wholesalers. A quick check of serial numbers with Kingston would reveal whether they are genuine or (as we suspect) 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 in to SOSFakeFlash if your testing confirms you have purchased a false capacity device on ebay
