If Kingston DataTraveler USB flash drives are genuine this ebay seller seems to be making a loss

with 3 comments

Ebay seller setar2009 has sold quite a large number of 8GB, 16GB and 32GB Kingston USB flash drives in ebay auctions. If they are genuine then we think this seller is making a loss overall. This makes us wonder if they could be counterfeits from a fraudulent supplier. If this seller’s USB flash drives are counterfeit they will corrupt files after a while. If they are counterfeits the seller may well not be aware of it.

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.

2GB Kingston DataTraveler flash drives in private ebay sales

If these 2GB Kingston DataTraveler USB flash drives are genuine we wonder why on earth UK seller is hiding buyer IDs with private listings. Private listings are intended for very expensive items like houses and vehicles or for embarassing things like gimp masks. As a 2GB flash drive is neither expensive nor embarrasing we can only think of one possible reason for hiding buyer IDs.

We advise everyone to test all flash memory with the free program h2testw.

Report in to SOSFakeFlash if your testing confirms you have a false capacity device.
