Dodgy ebay listings for job lots of DT150 USB flash drives

leave a comment »


Seller iidn (based in Turkey) has listed job lots of DataTraveler flash drives on ebay – both 64GB DT150 and 128 DT200. We think these came from a fraudulent wholesaler and will be counterfeit and fake capacity. Serial numbers for genuine Kingston DT150 and DT200 drives can be checked with the company and verified.

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.
