The discontinued Kingston DataTraveler 101 flash drive was not made in 64GB capacity so there is absolutely no doubt that the flash drive in this ebay listing from martha420_0 is a fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files.

Axel suspects there may be a connection between seller martha420_0 and seller marthashopmartha and we are inclined to agree. Steer well clear of both sellers!!

ebayers beware: Kingston flash drives from inkcoin1source are fake

leave a comment »

Beware: The Kingston flash drives sold by inkcoin1source are fake capacity counterfeits, and a fake capacity flash drive corrupts files. The model in this listing (the Kingston DataTraveler 300) is not made in 64GB capacity, all genuine ones will be 256GB.

This seller has also listed a 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 150 at auction – which is probably equally fake. This model was discontinued a couple of months back. If the DT 150 is by any chance genuine the buyer will be able to verify the serial number with Kingston. Kingston will not verify the obviously fake DT300 drives.
