Fake 32GB Kingston in private listing on ebay Australia

leave a comment »

Seller aussietechltd has obviously been shopping in fake flash land. This seller bought these counterfeit 32GB Kingston DataTraveler 101 drives from one of the many fraudulent wholesalers. These fraudulent wholesalers supply counterfeit and fake capacity flash memory items at prices that are often below the cost of manufacturing genuine ones. Fake flash memory trashes data after a while.

The fact that aussietechltd is using a private listing suggests to us that this seller may be aware that he or she is selling fakes. Many sellers don’t know because they didn’t do their research but it seems this may not be the case with this seller.

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.
