Another suspect 64GB Kingston on ebay Australia

with one comment

lanim1976

We doubt that this 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 150 listed by lanim1976 is genuine – buyers can check the serial numbers of these with Kingston to find out whether they are genuine or counterfeit. Counterfeits trash users files after a while. 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.

Suspected counterfeit 64GB DT150 flash drives on ebay Australia

We suspect the 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 150 flash drives listed by doug.george are counterfeit and fake capacity. If we are wrong and they are genuine (which we very much doubt) Kingston will be able to verify the serial numbers for buyers to confirm that they are genuine. If they are counterfeit they will corrupt your data.

These 64GB DataTraveler flash drives listed on ebay by mdxf88 are counterfeit and fake capacity. The seller is based in China but says items are in Ireland – no doubt to give buyers a false sense of security.

An obvious fake capacity flash drive from a UK ebay member

rdalot

There is something eerily familiar about this listing from rdalot. When you see flash drives with little shiny stickers like this it is a dead givaway that they are fake capacity items that will trash your files.

As usual we strongly advise ebayers to test all flash memory with the free program h2testw.

Report in to SOSFakeFlash if your testing confirms you have a false capacity device.

Another seller in China with Spiderman suits and fake flash

longbing_998

We wonder if there may be a connection between longbing_998 and ruijing016 – both sell Spiderman suits and so-called sexy cat suits of various types as well as fake flash drives. We wouldn’t touch flash drives from either of these sellers with a barge-pole.
