Seller blingbling6 (registered in Australia) has listed what we are certain are counterfeit 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 150 flash drives in job lots of 5. All flash drives of this type should have individual serial numbers which can be checked with Kingston to verify genuine drives. We are sure they will not verify these!

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.
