This fake 64GB Kingston USB flash drives in the listing above did not sell the first time seller speratusit listed them for sale. An ebay member warned this seller they were fake. So did speratusit look at the Kingston website as advised?

Seems not as, despite being warned it was a fake the first time it was listed, speratusit re-listed the drive:

Kingston simply do not make the DataTraveler 100 model in 64GB capacity and the seller was told this – so in our eyes relisting is deliberate fraud. We wonder if speratusit plans to relist the possibly counterfeit Sandisk flash drive that didn’t sell again too?

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 testing confirms you have purchased fake capacity flash memory on ebay.
