counterfeit 256GB Kingston flash drive from ebay seller 123_filmer

As the picture in this ebay listing from seller 123_filmer shows the 256GB Kingston DataTraveler 310 flash drive but the description matches the 256GB Kingston DataTraveler 300 we’re not sure which model 123_filmer is actually selling here. What we are sure of is that whichever model it is this USB flash drive will turn out to be a fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files.

Dodgy ebay listings for 256GB Kingston flash drive from buddybottle

We are certain that the 256GB Kingston flash drives from buddybottle will turn out to be fake capacity counterfeits that corrupt files. Although there is no picture in listings the title identifies the model as the DataTraveler 200 which is not made in 256GB capacity. Nobody that we have heard of has multiple high capacity flash drives that are unwanted – so we suspect this seller is being somewhat less than truthful.

Update 15/01/2911
We just spotted ebay item number 260720762976 from seller buddybottle – it has a picture of the supposed 256GB Kingston flash drives – and guess what? They are very obvious fake capacity counterfeits – anyone who buys one of these USB flash drives will find that it corrupts their files:

Counterfeit 256GB Kingston flash drives from d.g.services on ebay

Had ebay seller d.g.services done his or her research properly before buying the seller would have known in advance that these are very obvious fake capacity counterfeit Kingston flash drives. The DataTraveler 200 is not made in 256GB capacity – a quick look at the Kingston web site would have told the seller this. In this listing (item number 190489649599) d.g.services says:

Kingston 256GB DataTraveler 200

This item has been imported from China and is not working as it should be. Ive been told that it needs HP USB recovery program to get it working.
I have also found out that only about half of memory can be used (80-140GB) All items are new although have been opened.
I will not accept returns or refunds as i have given as much information as i can

We think d.g.services is mistaken about the storage capacity of these fakes and that it is unlikely that they can store as much as 8GB let alone 80GB. Once the real capacity of a fake capacity flash drive is filled it corrupts files.

We wonder if the seller realises that selling counterfeits is actually a criminal offence that could result in prosecution in court.

d77gough aka pc123shop selling fake Kingston in private auction.

leave a comment »

When we captured the private ebay auction above the seller’s ID was d77gough but yesterday the seller changed it to pc123shop. Now why would that be we wonder?

The 256GB Kingston USB flash drives listed on ebay by d77gough, now known as pc123shop are fake capacity counterfeits that corrupt files. The seller obviously bought from a fraudulent supplier, no doubt in China. The use of private auctions and the ID change make us wonder if the seller knows.

The Kingston DataTraveler is not produced in 256GB capacity nor in the pink colour except by the fraudsters in China who manufacture them. As this seller’s ID could change again at any moment here are the item numbers of the two auctions: 250712838718 and 250712847429

obvious fake 256GB Kingston in private ebay sales from seybuytech

leave a comment »

Had seller seybuytech looked at the Kingston web site before listing these very obvious fake 256GB Kingston DataTraveler flash drives then he or she would have known that these were fake capacity counterfeits. The model being sold (the DataTraveler 200) is not made in 256GB capacity – and it’s not made in pink – except by fraudsters in China.

This seller obviously bought from a fraudulent supplier so we suspect that the 32GB SD memory card recenty sold by seybuytech will be fake too. The use of private listings does make us wonder if the seller actually knows, but this may simply be an unfortunate habit. Anyone who buys a 256GB Kingston from seybuytech will find that it corrupts files after a while because the real capacity is nowhere near 256GB.

256GB Kingston flash drives from ebayer cheapermemory are fake

with 9 comments

Seller cheapermemory has a number of ebay listings for these obvious fake Kingston flash drives. The Kingston DataTraveler 200 is not made in 256GB capacity so these cannot be genuine. The seller may not realises these are fake capacity counterfeits that will corrupt files as many ebay sellers buy from fraudulent wholesale outlets in China without having done their research first!

Maybe some kind ebayer will warn this ebayer before any are sold so that (hopefully) he or she can remove the listings before anyone buys one of these fake capacity counterfeit flash drives and finds that it corrupts their files.

partsguystl openly selling counterfeit Kingston flash drives on ebay

leave a comment »

In this ebay listing (ebay item number 250702995204) partsguystl tells us these fake capacity counterfeit flash drives were purchased on the notorious website tradetang (stuffed full of fraudulent wholesale outlets in China) and that they are most likely knockoffs.

In other words the seller realises they are counterfeit – easily proved as this model of Kingston (the DataTraveler 200) is not made in 256GB capacity. Does partsguystl not realise that even if you say they are fake it is still a criminal offence to sell counterfeit items?

Anyone foolish enough to shell out $60 for one of these fakes will undoubtely find it corrupts their files.

jayjay991, jiaojiao168, dahongdenglong10 – devious ebay fraudsters

leave a comment »

The USB flash drives in the ebay listing above from devious fraudsters jayjay991 and dahongdenglong10 (below) are in China not the USA and they can’t hold anywhere near the advertised capacities.

Anyone who buys one of these fake capacity flash drives will find it corrupts their files. Seller jiaojiao168 is being devious in a slightly different way. This seller uses private listings to hide what is being sold.

This seller has two other fake capacity counterfeit Kingston drives for sale – the 256GB DT300 and the 256GB DT310 as well as the 128GB DT200 shown above. The 32GB Sandisk SD memory cards from this seller will also be fake capacity counterfeits. Any fake capacity memory card or flash drive corrupts files.

256GB Kingston flash drives from ebayer bordertrader10 are fake

leave a comment »

The 256GB Kingston flash drives in this ebay listing from bordertrader10 are very obvious fakes. The Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drive is only made in 32GB, 64GB and 128GB NOT 256GB. This model of flash drive is colour coded according to capacity and there are only three colours to match the three available capacities – not four.

When you see a listing that includes this type of flash drive in pink you know you are looking at fake capacity counterfeits manufactured by fraudsters in China that will corrupt your files. The seller may not realise these are fakes from a fraudulent supplier – a lot of sellers don’t research what is available properly before buying flash memory to re-sell on ebay. The 32GB and 128GB DT200 flash drives from this seller will also be fakes.

flash drives from ebayer dcs069 are fake, seller hasn’t a clue

leave a comment »

This ebay listing demonstrates that seller dcs069 hasn’t a clue about what he or she is selling; either that or the seller’s pants are on fire. The seller tells us in the listing:

I am offering BRAND NEW and packaged Kingston’s new DataTraveler 200 USB Flash drive. I have a small number of these available and I am available to answer any questions you may have about this item. I am not going to bore you with all the specs etc as you have no doubt done your homework.

Please specify whether you prefer Blue or Pink colour.

Looks like dcs069 didn’t do the homework!The Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drive is not made in 256GB capacity and is not made in pink colour (except by fraudsters in China) – so we can say without a shadow of a doubt that anyone who bought one just got themselves a fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files.

If the 256GB Kingston DataTraveler 300 flash drives listed in auctions on ebay by 3716johnp with a start price below cost are genuine then this seller is taking a massive risk and could lose thousands of dollars on sales.

The supposedly 256GB Kingston flash drive in this ebay listing from librotec6768 is a fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files.

This Kingston flash drive listed on ebay by perthtruckie is a fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files. If it was a genuine DataTraveler 200 it would be the 32GB model as these are colour coded (blue is 32GB, yellow 64GB and black 128GB) – there is NO 256GB Kingston DataTraveler 200. The highest capacity this model is available in is 128GB. Anyone can check this out by looking at the Kingston web site.
