Suspect ebay seller in Germany with 64GB Kingston DT150 drive

leave a comment »

We are pretty certain that this 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 150 flash drive listed at auction by seller 7586sergej is a counterfeit and fake capacity item. This seller lists occasional fake flash drives – single items at irregular intervals, so it seems this seller is not buying (as many ebay sellers do) in bulk from a fraudulent wholesale outlet.

We suspect that this seller has more than one ID and is buying fakes on ebay under one ID and re-selling them under another. This suggests to us that 7586sergej is well aware that the items are fakes that will corrupt users’ files.

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.
