Patently counterfeit Kingston DT200 drives on ebay Canada

leave a comment »

This listing on ebay Canada is for patently counterfeit Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drives. This drive is not made in 16GB so must have come from one of the many fraudulent wholesalers. The use of a private auction makes us think that perhaps seller sinacoltd is aware these are fakes that will corrupt users’ data.

If This seller is not aware of the fact that they are fake we suggest that sinacoltd checks the Kingston website then it will be clear that they must be counterfeit. Any other flash drives from the same supplier will be equally 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 testing confirms you have purchased fake capacity flash memory on ebay.
