Fighting flash fraud on Ebay

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

We don’t think this listing on ebay Spain is for a genuine Kingston

with one comment

We suspect that this is not a genuine 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 150. We have a feeling it is counterfeit. If it is a counterfeit flash drive then it is fake capacity and corrupts files. Seller luzdehada has a number of other dodgy looking flash drive listings.

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. Beware this seller is setting the postage price to the UK at £26.03: Reported to eBay for fee evasion:

    Additionally this seller is using software that reveals (exposes) the browsing member’s EBay ID This is VERY BAD as the only time a buyer should be identified is when they bid.
