Fighting flash fraud on Ebay

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

fake 64GB Kingston USB flash drive in ebay auction from bgtharry

The discontinued Kingston DataTraveler G2 USB flash drive (which is what the one in the listing picture imitates) was never made in 64GB capacity. What we have in this one day ebay auction from bgtharry is a fake capacity counterfeit USB flash drive that corrupts files. The use of a one day auction (item number 150547703448) makes us wonder if the seller may not actually be aware that this is a fake.

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.
