We think that the flash drive (item number 280361437726)  listed in a 24 hour auction by seller p-ultimaltd with a starting bid price of 99p has to be fake. The seller is using private auctions (usually a certain indication of fraud where flash memory is concerned) and clearly states he will not accept returns:

returns are not accepted we only resale this items from factory if you have any problems you need to contact manufacturer for your 5 yeas warranty

Think this just about says it all! Kingston will not refund your money if a flash drive is counterfeit (which we are pretty certain any from this seller will be) the seller is going to resist refunding you and so are ebay and paypal – they want to keep their mitts on the ill-gotten gains too!

Do not buy Kingston DataTraveler 150 flash drives from any seller on ebay!! You will almost certainly be defrauded. If there is a genuine ebay seller of these we would be pleased to hear about it – we will check with Kingston!

Seems this ebayer is selling counterfeit 64GB DataTraveler 150

This feedback comment from a buyer indicates that the 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 150 USB flash drives sold by pctech-man (a seller based in the USA) are not genuine Kingston but counterfeits:

item did not work at all, contacted Kingston, there was no valid serial number

If you bought from this seller do what this buyer did – contact Kingston to check your drive out. No doubt you will get the same answer. Report the seller to ebay and sosfakeflash, claim a refund through paypal, and leave the seller a neg to warn others!
