parisloralee and goreds2011 auction DT310 flash drives on ebay

with 2 comments

There seems to be a remarkable similarity between the ebay auction above from parisloralee (Member since 04-Apr-10 in Australia) and the one below from goreds2011 (Member since 12-May-10 in Australia) – looks like the photos were taken in the exact same spot, for one thing!

Is this just co-incidence or are the two listings actually from the same person? We think they are one and the same as the only feedback for goreds2011 comes from guess who?

You got it – the two effusive feedback comments for goreds2011 come from none other than parisloralee!!

Buyers can check whether or not a Kingston DT310 flash drive is genuine by verifying the serial number with Kingston. If the serial number cannot be verified then the USB flash drive is a fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files. Somehow, we don’t think for a second that Kingston will be verifying either of these as genuine!!

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.

  1. Adam,
    What was said was nothing to do with what the items were – it was about the cross transactions between yourself and parisloralee along with the use of what seems to be exactly the same photo. We have often found that sellers have more than one ID and transactions between the two are used to build up feedback.
