The listing above for counterfeit fake capacity 256GB Kingston DataTraveler 310 flash drives seems to have vanished. It was probably removed by ebay. If you were unlucky enough to have bought from this seller without realising that it is impossible for these to be genuine and have not yet paid – then don’t! It cost a lot more than the buy it now price in this listing to MANUFACTURE a 128GB flash drive.

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.

UPDATE 13/07/2010
It seems that ebay, having removed this fraudulent listing already, has now suspended zhihui_yang011279.

Seems that ebay may finally be taking fake flash fraud on their site a bit more seriously – however (as we have seen that people have been searching for information about this seller) we do wonder whether they are actually telling buyers anything?? Or is the recent increase in removing fraudulent listings and suspending sellers just a more efficient cover-up job??
