leave a comment »

The 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drives sold on ebay by 39922682 are fake capacity counterfeits, they are far too cheap to be anything else. Anyone who bought one will find it corrupts their files after a while.

3 day ebay auction for 256GB Kingston DT300 from octogonpc

leave a comment »

If this 256GB Kingston DataTraveler 300 USB flash drive is genuine then seller octogonpc is taking a big risk by selling it in a 3 day ebay auction as the seller is very likely to make a loss. The buyer can confirm whether or not it is genuine by using Kingston’s serial number verification system. If the serial number cannot be verified by Kingston then the USB flash drive is a fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files.

Sony Vaio flash drive from ebayer potingroup2010 will corrupt files

leave a comment »

There is no such thing as a genuine Sony Vaio flash drive. Sony do not use the Vaio name for flash drives. The USB flash drive in this ebay auction from potingroup2010 is a fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files. The same applies to any other flash drive being sold as Sony Vaio.

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.

128GB Kingston DT200 flash drives from ebayer sleigherdelray

leave a comment »

We think it highly unlikely that the 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drives auctioned on ebay by sleigherdelray are genuine. In the unlikely event that they are genuine buyers can confirm this by verifying the serial number with Kingston. If no serial number is present or the serial number cannot be verified by Kingston then we are right and the USB flash drive is a fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files.

dhogue2010 auctioning 256GB Kingston DT310 flash drives on ebay

We think it unlikely that the 256GB Kingston DataTraveler 310 flash drives listed in three day auctions by dhogue2010 are genuine. Buyers can check with Kingston by verifying the serial number of the flash drive. If Kingston cannot verify the serial number then the USB flash drive is a fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files.

64GB Sandisk Ultra backup from ebayer jojodavison a bit cheap

leave a comment »

The buy it now price in this ebay listing from jojodavison seems rather low for the 64GB Sandisk Ultra Backup USB flash drive. This makes us wonder whether this seller made the mistake of buying from a fraudulent supplier in China selling fake capacity counterfeits.

If these did come from one of the fraudulent wholesale outlets in China then buyers will find that the flash drive corrupts files after a while. If the 64GB Lexar flash drives came from the same supplier then the same would apply to them. If the flash drives from jojodavison are fakes the seller probably has no idea that this is the case.

kdjacob11 auctions used 64GB DT200 flash drives on ebay

We doubt that the used 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drives being sold at auction on ebay by kdjacob11 are genuine. We think they could well be fake capacity counterfeits and advise buyers to test them immediately on receipt.

By the time ebayers get fake flash drives from fasjun this seller may be long gone

leave a comment »

By the time that ebayers who bought fake flash items (USB flash drives and memory cards) from fasjun find out that they bought a fake the seller will probably be long gone from ebay. Most of the fraudsters in China claim to send by airmail, and that takes around 15 days for items to arrive – not this ebay scammer – this one sends by sea, so you can expect to wait around a month for your item!

If you bought a flash memory item on ebay fasjun you need to test it immediately with h2testw immediately it arrives and claim a refund straight away to stand any chance of getting your money back from this fraudster.

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.

256GB DT310 flash drives in ebay auctions from thepitstop4tees

leave a comment »

Seller thepitstop4tees seems to have a number of 256GB Kingston DataTraveler 310 flash drives listed in 3 day ebay auctions. We think it highly unlikely that these are genuine but buyers can check the serial numbers using Kingston’s verification system to find out. We are pretty certain that Kingston will not verify these. If Kingston cannot verify a serial number then the flash drive is a fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files.

*_gary_* auctions 16GB flash drives on ebay with huge postage charge

leave a comment »

Seller *_gary_* has listed two models of 16GB Kingston USB flash drive and the 16GB Sandisk Blade flash drive at auction on ebay, all with a start price of 99p and huge postage costs. This looks rather like ebay fee evasion to us – it will also make it very difficult for buyers to get their money back if they turn out to be fake capacity counterfeits.

If this 256GB Kingston DataTraveler 310 flash drive is genuine then seller askarda is likely to make a loss by auctioning it on ebay. The buyer can check whether or not it is genuine by verifying the serial number with Kingston. If Kingston cannot verify the serial number then this USB flash drive is a fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files after a while.

256GB Kingston DT300 from ebayer amiabdele surely counterfeit

leave a comment »

The buy it now price in this ebay listing from amiabdele is too low for this Kingston DataTraveler 300 flash drive to be genuine. If it was the buyer would be able to verify the serial number with Kingston but we are pretty certain Kingston won’t verify this one. We think this will turn out to be a fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files.

Are 32GB Kingston DT200 flash drives from ebayer kmelectrics1 genuine?

leave a comment »

We could not see a serial number on the back of the package shown in this ebay listing from kmelectrics1 so we suspect this seller may have bought from a fraudulent supplier. We advise buyers to check – if there is no serial number then the USB flash drive will be a fake capacity counterfeit.

If there is in fact a serial number present this can be used to check with Kingston that the drive is genuine. A lot of fraudulent suppliers will actually provide a false serial number or one that has already been registered, so if Kingston cannot verify the serial number then the flash drive is a fake.
