The authors of this blog want to elimnate flash fraud on Ebay

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!

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.

  1. Hi IT guy,

    An ebay member can become naru “not a registered user” by simply closing their account. This does not mean they have been kicked out by ebay.

    However – if you find that someone who sold fake items is naru and all listings (even items that were sold and had buyer feedback) have been removed then the seller has been kicked off (at least temporararily) by ebay – though the seller may well return to defraud people in future!

  2. This article indicates “no longer a registered user” can be “get of jail card”. The seller blocks feedback and gets to reactivate account a suitable future date.

  3. The question is how many did this fraudster manage to sell before de-registeration?

    I think I have had an idea about selllers who are de-registered fast but need to think it through first. Time and energy is limited – lots of “work for work” to be done so I can earn my crust of bread!
