if 128GB DT200 from ebayer caetwesel is genuine seller risks loss

leave a comment »

If this 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drive listed on ebay by caetwesel is genuine then this seller risks making a loss on the sale by selling at auction with a low start price. A genuine flash drive of this type has an individual serial number that can be verified with Kingston.

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.

seems ebay seller in Australia made loss on 4GB Kingston if genuine

leave a comment »

If the 4GB Kingston DataTraveler USB flash drives from seller ozbestchoice are genuine then we are fairly certain the seller made a loss on this one. We are a little surprised that this seller is still auctioning them if they are the real deal – after all no one likes to sell at a loss!

This makes us wonder if ozbestchoice purchased them from a fraudulent supplier. If they came from a fraudulent wholesale outlet they will corrupt files.

suspiciously cheap 4GB Kingston USB flash drives on ebay USA

leave a comment »

The 4GB Kingston USB flash drives listed on ebay USA by pdqsyr look suspiciously cheap to us. This makes us wonder if this ebay member bought from one of the fraudulent wholesale outlets supplying counterfeits. If they are counterfeit they will also be fake capacity and will corrupt files.

Are these 4GB Kingston DataTraveler flash drives on ebay genuine?

If the 4GB Kingston DataTraveler flash drives sold by dolltoyou (registered in Thailand) are genuine then we think this seller must be making a loss. The other possibility is that the seller bought from a fraudulent supplier and that they are counterfeits which will corrupt users’ files. At the moment we can’t say one way or another.

UK seller who doesn’t mind making a loss on sales??

leave a comment »

UK ebay member experthesamuel made a loss on the auction for this 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 150 if it was genuine. The buyer should check the serial number with Kingston. If Kingston cannot verify the serial number then it will be counterfeit and fake capacity. Fakes trash files. This seller also listed the 32GB version at auction.
