128GB DT200 from ebayer hightechnology2009 sure to be fake

leave a comment »

The buy it now price in this ebay listing from hightechnology2009 seems rather too low for the 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drives being sold to be genuine. We suspect that hightechnology2009 bought them from a fraudulent supplier and that these are fake capacity counterfeits. A fake capacity flash drive corrupts files. In the unlikely event that we are mistaken and the drives are genuine buyers will be able to verify the serial number of their drive with Kingston.

128GB DT200 on ebay from liguifu8850 not faulty but fake!!!

leave a comment »

It seems that the fraudsters in China have learned a trick from the more selfish of their their victims on ebay – we have started to see ebay listings from China like this one from liguifu8850 listing fake capacity counterfeit Kingston flash drives as faulty. Thanks a lot ebayers! Looks like you gave the fraudsters an easy way out.

128GB flash drives from ebayer usb-supplies likely to trash files

leave a comment »

We are fairly certain that ebay seller usb-supplies bought the 128GB flash drives in this ebay listing from a fraudulent supplier and that they are fake capacity, which corrupts files. It is likely that a maximum of just under 4GB can be stored on these before files start to be lost and corrupted.

fake 64GB Kingston flash drives sold by ebayer usb-tech10 will trash files

leave a comment »

Seller usb-tech10 states in listings that the flash drives sold are not genuine Kingston but does not seem to understand the implications of this. Copies of brand name items are counterfeits – and the sale of counterfeits is illegal. Not only this but in the case of counterfeit flash drives they are also fake capacacity. A fake capacity flash drive corrupts files. To put it simply – once the real capacity (a maximum of 4GB) is full files begin to be lost and corrupted.

If this 64GB DT200 flash drive is genuine ebayer lanamarie1612 may make a loss

leave a comment »

If this 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drive is genuine then ebayer lanamarie1612 could well make a loss on the sale. Genuine DT200 USB flash drives have individual serial numbers which can be used to verify the drive with Kingston. If the drive cannot be verified then this flash drive will be a fake capacity counterfeit which corrupts files.

We have a feeling that this 256GB Kingston DataTraveler 310 flash drive being auctioned on ebay by kulend81 will turn out to be a fake capacity counterfeit which corrupts files.
