Dodgy listings on ebay for 64GB Kingston DataTraveler flash drives

We doubt very much if the 64GB Kingston DataTraveler flash drives listed for sale by stephenmaddog14 are genuine – we think they are counterfeit and fake capacity. Seller stephenmaddog14 probably purchased them from one of the many fraudulent wholesalers selling counterfeit and fake capacity flash memory items.

If the 8GB Ipods listed by this seller came from the same source they will be fakes too. Fake flash memory trashes your files after a while. If a bargain flash drive, memory card, MP player etc on ebay seems too good to be true then you can bet it is too good a bargain to be true – it will be fake fake fakity fake.

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.
