Seller in Germany lists DT200 in non-existant capacity on ebay

leave a comment »

Kingston do not make the DataTraveler 200 flash drive in 16GB capacity, as anyone who looks at the Kingston website will see. This flash drive listed by grossmodelle-de is a fake that will no doubt corrupt users’ files.

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

This 128GB Kingston DT200 on ebay USA is likely to be a fake

leave a comment »

We think it very unlikely indeed that this 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drive listed by tedmanuel is genuine. If we are wrong the buyer will be able to verify the serial number with Kingston. If we are right it will corrupt the buyer’s files after a while.

4GB Kingston on ebay Ireland seems too cheap to be genuine

leave a comment »

We think these 4GB Kingston flash drives listed by nyproo may have been purchased from a fraudulent wholesale outlet as they seem a bit on the cheap side to be genuine Kingston DataTraveler G2 drives. If they are counterfeits from a fraudulent wholesaler they will corrupt users’ files.

128GB USB flash drives on ebay Australia are certain to be fake

leave a comment »

It seems that seller tippystradingonline bought from a fraudulent wholesaler. We are certain these 128GB USB flash drives will be no such thing. Although the drive properties will show 128GB this is not the truth – they are fake capacity items that will corrupt users’ files. The seller may be unaware of this.

UK ebay seller with fake Kingston DataTraveler USB flash drives

leave a comment »

UK seller mrflashdrive has listed a number of 64GB and 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drives that we are certain are fake. This seller no doubt bought from one of the many fraudulent wholesale outlets. These wholesalers supply counterfeit and fake capacity flash memory items that corrupt users’ files.

Seems this ebayer in Germany went shopping in fakeflashland

As well as this steel swivel model of USB flash drive seller dincer70 has also listed the favourite leather and steel type which always proves to be fake. This seller obviously bought from a fraudulent supplier – the flash drives being sold will corrupt users’ files. The seller may not realise that he or she bought fakes.

Fake 16GB Kingston USB flash drive listed on ebay India

leave a comment »

This model of Kingston USB flash drive shown in a listing on ebay India by jainlalit is an old discontinued model that was never made in 16GB capacity. The highest capacity Kingston made this drive in was 1GB.

These can only have come from a fraudulent supplier and will be fake capacity items which will trash user’s files.

Given that jainlalit listed one fake we’d be very wary of buying any flash memory from this seller. Ebay sellers who buy one fake item from a fraudulent wholesaler often buy others.
