Fighting flash fraud on Ebay

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

32GB Kingston DataTraveler drives from ebayer musicandsoul2010

The 32GB Kingston DataTraveler flash drives in this ebay listing from seller musicandsoul2010 are fake capacity counterfeits – the 32GB version of this discontinued model was orange not purple. The seller may be unaware that they are fakes but buyers will find that their nice new USB flash drive corrupts files 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.
