Kingston DT150 flash drives sold on ebay by ekaterino likely fakes

leave a comment »

A number of these 32GB Kingston DataTraveler 150 USB flash drives have been sold in ebay auctions by ekaterino. If they are genuine then this seller has been making a loss on sales. We think it is much more likely that this seller bought from a fraudulent supplier and that they are fake capacity counterfeits which corrupt files. If we are wrong and the drives are genuine then buyers will be able to verify 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.
