32GB DT200 flash drives in private ebay auction from abestseller4u

leave a comment »

The price in this private ebay auction from abestseller4u seems a little low for the 32GB Kingston DataTraveler USB flash drive which makes us think they may have come from a fraudulent supplier. 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.

64GB DT200 flash drives from ebayer theeseanmartin1 may be fake

leave a comment »

We have a feeling that the 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drives listed at auction on ebay by theeseanmartin1 will turn out to be fake capacity counterfeits purchased from a fraudulent supplier (no doubt in China) – if we are right these flash drives will corrupt files.

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?

leave a comment »

We think the 32GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drive purchased from China by argido10 and sold on ebay are pretty certain to be fake capacity counterfeits. The one in the listing above sold yesterday for £29.00 with free P&P. This seller may well vanish from ebay as once buyers report to ebay that they are selling counterfeits the seller’s account is usually suspended by ebay.

kuhred12 is another ebay fake flash fraudster

leave a comment »

Unbeleivable! At least one foolish buyer appears to have paid fake flash seller kuhred12 for this obviously fake capacity counterfeit 128GB Kingston DataTraveler flash drive.

Have ebayers lost the common sense they were born with? Seems like it!!

You’d be lucky to get a reliable 8GB USB flash drive for £8.23, let alone a 128GB one! Snoopy didn’t cope with seeing this – we think poor old snoopy may be having a mental breakdown.

We can’t get him to get off the ground and stop banging his fists in frustration at the stupidity of the human race.
