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

Looks like another UK ebay member who sold fake DT200

with one comment

If this 64GB Kingston DataTraveler (item number 120519897241) sold by UK registered ebay member jackson3327 was genuine then snoopy will fall off his doghouse in a dead faint.

We agree with snoopy – who would sell a real one with a start price of under £10? Oh of course – we forgot the explanation given by the seller:

64 GB USB 2.0 data stick drive, Bought for office use but selling due to office closure, only selling as I have no use for item. Brand new in unopened packaging. Please note that this stick was bought from Hong Kong, Iam currently using one which works fine (Massive storage for little money!!!). Bids to start at £9.99 with no reserve. Grab a bargain, “happy bidding and good luck.”

Our comment is visually represented on the right! 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. I see that this seller is at it again item 120528097530 looks similar, and its origin and reason for sale described in a similar fashion. The term bovine excretia comes to mind here. Previous buyer advised to test with h2testw.
