gremlin2sLooks like this gremlin ID may belong to the “wedding dress gang” – one of a number of fraud rings the frankeflash project have uncovered in China.

These 64GB Kingston DataTraveler drives will probably have been removed from sale from ebay under pressure from Kingston by the time you read this because they are counterfeit. Buyers can check serial numbers with Kingston – we know what they will say.

Claim a refund through the dispute console from this crook as soon you get confirmation that it is counterfeit and fake capacity. 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 so that we can preserve the evidence of fraud and issue an Internet alert to warn other victims.
