Seems 32GB memory cards from this ebay seller are counterfeit

leave a comment »

We previously posted about fake Kingston flash drives from greenhound53 – seems from feedback that the seller’s memory cards are equally fake.

A dodgy looking ebay listing for USB flash drives from China

We think this listing by newpage2010 (registered in China) for USB flash drives looks rather dodgy. We suspect we have found a new ebay gremlin with a range of fake flash drives which will corrupt users’ files.

suspect 128GB Kingston flash drives sold on ebay UK

These 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drives sold by dice23969281 were too cheap to be genuine. The genuine ones have individual serial numbers that can be verified with Kingston. We don’t think Kingston will verify these.

Seller from Denmark lists obvious fake Kingston on ebay

There is only one model of 128GB Kingston flash drive and the drive pictured here isn’t it! Seller urohans obviously bought these from a fraudulent supplier. The fact that the listing is private makes us wonder if this seller is actually aware that these are fakes which will corrupt users’ files.

suspect 64GB Kingston DT150 USB flash in private ebay auction

Seller baba7830 (registered in France) is using private auctions to sell what we are pretty sure are counterfeit and fake capacity Kingston DataTraveler USB flash drives on ebay. If we are wrong buyers will be able to verify serial numbers with Kingston,

More 32GB Sony Vaio USB flash drives listed for sale on ebay

Seller liushibakuai125 (registered in Korea) has listed 32GB Sony Vaio flash drives on ebay. There is no such thing – the Vaio name is only used for laptops not flash drives. These are fakes that will corrupt users’ files.
