256GB DT310 flash drives in private ebay auctions from th786

leave a comment »

The 256GB Kingston DataTraveler flash drives listed in private ebay auctions by th786 are unlikely to be genuine. Buyers can check whether or not a Kingston flash drive is genuine quite easily – here are the steps:

  1. Look at the back of the pack – is there a serial number?
  2. If there is no serial number (there should be a label showing this) then it is sure to be a fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files – but the presence of a serial number does not, in itself, gaurantee it is genuine.

  3. Look at the USB connector – is there engraving on it giving details about the flash drive?
  4. If there is no engraving you can be sure it is a counterfeit that will trash your files – but again, the presence of engraving does not in itself gaurantee it is genuine.

  5. If both a serial number and engraving are present try verifying the serial number with Kingston.
  6. If Kingston cannot verify the serial number then you have a fake capacity counterfeit and your data will become lost or corrupted after a while.

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.

The Kingston DataTraveler 200 is not made in 256GB capacity so seller gamazon09 obviously bought from a fraudulent supplier.

fake 64GB flash drive in private ebay listing from webtradingenterprises

leave a comment »

Painting out the Kingston name on the packaging and saying “This is not a Kingston® product which sells a similar drive for $216.00” in the listing does not change the fact that webtradingenterprises is knowingly selling fake capacity counterfeit Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drives in this private ebay listing.

128GB DT200 flash drives in ebay auctions from crndiscounts

leave a comment »

In the unlikely event that the 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drives listed at auction on ebay by crndiscounts are genuine buyers will be able to confirm this by verifying the serial numbers with Kingston. However, unless crndiscounts is a rich person who can afford to gamble on losing a couple of thousand dollars on sales, we are pretty certain they will turn out to be fake capacity counterfeits from China which corrupt files.

Buyers can check whether or not a Kingston flash drive is genuine quite easily – here are the steps:

very dodgy looking ebay listing from smartq09 for Kingston flash drives

leave a comment »

This ebay listing from smartq09 for 64GB Kingston flash drives looks extremely dodgy to us – the picture is tiny so it is a bit difficult to identify all the models shown but we are pretty sure (even with a tiny picture) that some of them cannot possibly be genuine 64GB Kingston flash drives. This seller either bought fake capacity counterfeits from a fraudulent supplier or simply used a photo of all the Kingston flash drives in stock irrespective of capacity.
