The buy it now price set for these 16GB Kingston DataTraveler USB flash drives seems a little low. This makes us wonder whether seller szymon24b bought from one of the fraudulent wholesalers supplying counterfeits.

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.

UPDATE 09/01/10
Seller szymon24b is now offering 16GB flash drives that are absolutely certainly fake – the model shown in this listing is not made in 16GB. These are counterfeit, fake capacity items that will corrupt files.

UPDATE 18/01/10
Seller szymon24b is now using a picture of the DT150 in a buy it now listing for 16GB Kingston – another model that is not made in 16GB capacity!
