Suspect listing for DT200 on ebay Australia

If these are genuine 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drives then why is seller mypossum-2009 using a private listing to hide buyer IDs? Serial numbers can be checked with Kingston to verify genuine DT200 drives.

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.

  1. Quite so Traveler – anyone buying on ebay should avoid paying directly from their bank account.

  2. The seller also makes it clear in the listing:

    “BANK DEPOSIT PREFERRED”

    Avoid any seller suggesting this method of payment. I do not think you have any form of protection when paying this way.

    I bet every fraudster would love to be paid by bank deposit!
