Job lot of fake 128GB Kingston DT200 listed for sale on ebay

leave a comment »

An ebay seller registered in Argentina, log_electronics, is dropshipping this job lot of counterfeit 128GB Kingston DataTraveler USB flash drives from Shanghai. These will be fake capacity items which destroy data – if someone buys these and re-sells them on ebay then what they will end up with is not a profit but a lot of angry buyers and possible suspension by ebay.

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.

We think that the 65GB Kingston DataTraveler USB flash drives in this ebay listing from chris_1566 were purchased from one of the many fraudulent wholesalers supplying counterfeit and fake capacity memory items which trash users’ 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.

We think that the 128GB Kingston Datatraveler 200 USB flash drives listed on ebay Australia by bjshaw80 will prove to be counterfeit and fake capacity. If we are right they will destroy users’ data after a while. If we are wrong then serial numbers can be verified with Kingston.

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.

Here we have yet another ebay ID used by fraudsters in China to sell fake usb flash drives on ebay. We can say without a doubt that this 32GB leather and steel type drive from farness.98 will turn out to be fake capacity and will destroy data.

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.

We think that ebay seller tilopa_8 purchase these 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drives from a fraudulent supplier. If we are right they will be counterfeits and fake capacity. Fake capacity flash memory trashes users files. If we are wrong then serial numbers can be verified by Kingston.

128GB Kingston DT200 on ebay USA a bit too cheap to be genuine

We think the 128GB DataTraveler flash drives in this ebay listing by americanesuperstore are a little too cheap for them to be genuine. We think this seller bought from a fraudulent supplier and that they will be counterfeit and fake capacity. If we are mistaken then serial numbers can be verified with Kingston, if we are right they will corrupt 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 your fake if testing confirms you have purchased fake capacity flash memory on ebay.
