Fighting flash fraud on Ebay

The authors of this blog want to elimnate flash fraud on Ebay

Another ebayer who sold fake 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200

We can say without a shadow of a doubt that anyone who bought a 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drive from notebookmd will have a counterfeit with a fake capacity. After a while anyone using one of these will end up with lost and corrupted files as there is nowhere for data to go. The seller obviously bought from one of the many fraudulent wholesalers supplying these counterfeits and may not realise that these are fakes.

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

  1. Seems the listing was removed as there is no sign of it and this new member now has no items for sale. Perhaps the seller realised there might be a problem.
