Fighting flash fraud on Ebay

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

used Kingston DT200 flash drives in ebay auctions from karoplano

We think it very unlikely that the used 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drive in this ebay auction (item number 180607875634) from karoplano is genuine. As well as this auction the seller has a buy it now listing for four more of these, an auction for one 32GB DT200 and a buy it now listing for four of the 32GB model. We strongly suspect that these 10 USB flash drives will all turn out to be fake capacity counterfeits and that anyone who buys one will find it corrupts their files.

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.
