Fraudster in China with private ebay sales for counterfeit Kingston

leave a comment »

Beware of private listings on ebay for flash memory items such as USB flash drives, MP players, memory cards etc. Private listings for this type is generally a sign of fraud. This is certainly the case with this listing by xiaohao_hk88 – the flash drives in this listing are not genuine 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 drives. They are counterfeit, fake capacity items that will corrupt files. At this price they couldn’t be anything else!!

128GB Kingston DT200 in ebay USA auctions with low start price

with 4 comments

The 128GB Kingston DataTraveler USB flash drives auctioned on ebay by kh9709 are certain to be counterfeit and fake capacity. These USB flash drives will corrupt data. This devious fraudster is actually located in China – that’s where Macau is, not in the USA!

Honest ebay seller? Somehow we think it unlikely!

Is colour.up an honest ebay seller? Somehow we don’t think so. Honest sellers don’t bump up the postage costs for a small item like a flash drive to £10 for a start!! We think that this seller’s flash drives are very likely to be fake capacity. Fake capacity USB flash drives corrupt files.
