Fighting flash fraud on Ebay

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

is used 64GB DT200 flash drive from ebayer djmint1983 genuine?

Is this 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drive listed at auction on ebay by djmint1983 genuine? We have our doubts as djmint1983 already sold at least one of these (item number 160519306365) for AU $41.00 on 17th December 2010 which doesn’t really seem to match with the statement made in this listing:

used twice and not needed anymore as i have purchased a pocket hard drive.
so it is in almost new condition

Seems rather dubious to us, but of course it is always possible that we are mistaken in thinking they are likely to be fakes but we suspect that the “used” 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drive currently being auctioned by djmint1983 (and the previously sold one) are likely to turn out to be fake capacity counterfeits. The truth will probably come out in the end if buyers are not too timid to leave honest feedback – which appears to be an increasing problem on ebay.

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.
