Ebay has removed listings from petermak_hk. This is presumably because they finally cottoned on to the fact that he was selling counterfeit Kingston. If you bought flash memory from this seller you are strongly advised to test with h2testw.

Ebay Alert! Seller petermak_hk suspect fraudster

with 2 comments

Seller petermak_hk is using private auctions to sell flash items such as MP4 players. Fightfakeflash is awaiting test results from an ebayer who bought from this seller so that the buyer’s test results can be confirmed and passed to sosfakeflash for addition to the database. Seller petermak_hk is also selling “32gb” flash drives marked with the registered trademark name DATA TRAVELLER. This trademark belongs to Kingston. Kingston does not make a 32GB drive of this type so how can he sell one? 21 ebayers bought one of these on 17th January alone. None can be contacted to suggest they test their drives because buyer IDs are kept private. Draw your own conclusions.
