If DT200 flash drive sold on ebay by mariosilversell is genuine seller made a loss

leave a comment »

If this 128GB Kingston DataTraveler USB flash drive sold on ebay by mariosilversell is genuine this seller made a big loss on the sale. We doubt that it is genuine though. If it is then the serial number can be verified with Kingston – but we consider this unlikely. We have a feeling that this will turn out to be a counterfeit and fake capacity USB flash drive that corrupts files.

ebayer jmvtec67 sells probable counterfeit Kingston DT200 flash drive

leave a comment »

We think this 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drive sold on ebay by jmvtec67 is counterfeit and fake capacity, which corrupts files. It seems likely that this ebayer bought them from a fraudulent supplier in China – if we are wrong then this seller made a huge loss on the two sold to date.

UPDATE 26/06/2010
Strangely seller jmvtec67 has had no feedback for either the item in this ebay listing (item number 270575451666) to date, or for the previous two sales, yet feedback for other listings for fake DT200 drives since then has been left quickly and all is positive. If the flash drives were genuine the seller would be well out of pocket by now, so they simply have to be fakes. All very suspicious in our book!!

chicago.dragonext:private ebay auction, suspected fake flash fraudster

with 5 comments

We have a couple of questions for ebay seller chicago.dragonext:

  • Why use a private ebay auction to sell a flash drive? – unless (of course) you are trying to hide the fact that you are selling fakes!
  • Where exactly in Hong Kong is GET IT FAST! ???

What do we think about ebay seller chicago.dragonext? We suspect that this seller may well be a slightly more intelligent fraudster than usual. Of course we may get a big surprise and find that this flash drive is genuine. Somehow, we think not.
