Fighting flash fraud on Ebay

The authors of this blog want to elimnate flash fraud on Ebay

turtle_rock_uk lists counterfeit 64GB Kingston flash drives on ebay

The Kingston DataTraveler G2 model of USB flash drive has been discontinued – it was never made in 64GB capacity so the flash drives in this ebay listing (item number 170584733608) from top rated ebay seller turtle_rock_uk are fake capacity counterfeits and anyone who buys one will find it corrupts their files.

As turtle_rock_uk obviously bought these from a fraudulent supplier it seems very likely that all flash memory items from this seller will turn out to be fakes.

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.
