Kingston DT200 flash drives sold by ebayer majacek202 likely fakes

leave a comment »

We have a feeling that the Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drives sold on ebay by majacek202 will turn out to be fake capacity counterfeits which corrupt files. If we are wrong then buyers will be able fo verify the serial numbers with Kingston.

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.

128GB DT200 listed on ebay by fuiken76 unlikely to be genuine

leave a comment »

We think it unlikely that this 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drive listed at auction on ebay by fuiken76 is genuine. We suspect that this will turn out to be yet another fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files. If we are wrong (which is very unlikely) the buyer will be able to verify the serial number with Kingston.

fake Sony Vaio flash drives listed on ebay by unemploymehy

There is no such thing as a Sony Vaio flash drive other than a counterfeit fake capacity one that corrupts files. The USB flash drive in this ebay listing from unemploymehy is guaranteed to trash files – it was manufactured by fraudsters in China and has nothing whatsoever to do with Sony.

The USB flash drive pictured in this ebay listing from yushenjie3310 may say Sony on it but this flash drive has nothing whatsoever to do with Sony. It is a counterfeit and fake capacity flash drive that corrupts files.

wuyufeixxx sold counterfeit Kingston DT310 flash drives on ebay

leave a comment »

The 256GB Kingston DataTraveler 310 USB flash drives in this ebay listing from wuyufeixxx are fake capacity counterfeits – at this price they simply couldn’t be anything else. A counterfeit and fake capacity flash drive cannot store the claimed amount of data and corrupts files once the true capacity (usually 4GB at most) has been filled. This seller has been suspended by ebay and listings have been removed. If you bought one of these flash drives from this seller check the serial number with Kingston immediately and get your refund claim in.

test 64GB Kingston flash drives sold on ebay by mtec-81 with h2testw

leave a comment »

Two models of 64GB Kingston flash drives have been sold on ebay by mtec-81 – the DT200 shown above and the discontinued DT150. We have a feeling they may have come from a fraudulent wholesale outlet supplying counterfeit and fake capacity flash memory items.

flower139710 lists obvious fake 128GB USB flash drive on ebay

leave a comment »

Seller flower139710 obviously bought the obviously fake capacity and counterfeit flash drives in this ebay listing from one of the fraudulent wholesale outlets in China who supply counterfeit and fake capacity flash memory items. A fake capacity flash drive corrupts files.

This seller obviously didn’t do his or her research properly otherwise flower139710 would have known it is not possible to manufacture a genuine 128GB flash drive for this price, let alone sell at this price on ebay.
