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.

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.
