Beware of ebay fake flash seller likeanglefree

with 2 comments

The 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 150 flash drives in this ebay listing (item number 120661190245) from likeanglefree are fake capacity counterfeits – they are far too cheap to be anything else. Anyone who buys one of these USB flash drives will find it corrupts their files. The same applies to memory cards from this seller.

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. Hi Marco,

    There is not a snowball in hell’s chance that your 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 150 USB flash drive from ebay seller likeanglefree is genuine.

    Follow our recommendations in the listing when it arrives – and if you don’t get your flash drive within the next week then we suggest you open an item not received dispute!
