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.

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.
