Counterfeit 512GB advertised flash memory capacity for DT310 Kingston DataTraveler usb flash drives are appearing on eBay. The next wave of flash memory fraud on eBay is here! The FrankenFlash Project knew it would only be a matter of time before this popular DataTraveler would be faked to appear 512GB complete with packaging. No one expected to see them on eBay so soon.

Counterfeit DT310/512GB Kingston DataTraveler USB Flash Drive – It Is A Fake! DT310 512 GB Never Manufactured

The most popular previous DataTraveler models sold at capacities never manufactured were DT150 and DT200 flash drives. They also appeared in waves.

SOSFakeFlash warns a Tsunami of DT310 512GB flash drives offered for sale on eBay is likely to hit very shortly. They are pouring out of wholesale internet sites in China. Foolish eBay sellers such as electroxl are importing and listing them on eBay. We expect eBay will pull the listings and attempt to partrol for them. However, given past history for the other models (DT150, DT200) they are likely to be overwhelmed. When this happens, another Tsunami of DT310 fakes will appear on eBay and will appear in many eBayer countries simultaneously.

Your best option to protect yourself is NOT bid or BUY any DT310 usb flash drives on eBay at 512GB or even 256GB capacity – unless the eBay seller is authorized by Kingston. Your greatest risk will be “Buy Now” auctions.

We ask your assistence to spread the message about the new DT310 512GB DataTraveler being both counterfeit and fake flash memory capacity. This is the best defense to keep they out of eBay and also other internet sites. Report any internet site listing them to Kingston Technologies so they can help fight this new fraud, before it becomes another fake flash epidemic.

    I posted my comment yesterday in the what I think is the wrong section SD card so thought I would put it here as well. As of 10:38 am on 31/10/2011 the item has 5 days & 6 hours yet to run.

    Hello Fake Flash. I am watching a 512GB Kingston 310 on Ebay. The seller is postitpostit14, the item number is 230693639503 it specifics that it is at a start of £280. The seller is at 159 with 100% positive feedback so I am unsure whether a seller with such a 100% clear record would willingly know & sell an item that is fake. I have reported this item to Ebay 3 times in the last 24 hours but hey it’s still there. I realise that there are lots & lots for Ebay to trawl through & probably genuine sticks are being reported as possible fakes, but surely to goodness if Kingston don’t make this size then it must be a fake. I have a genuine 32GB Lexar & is tiny with the size only a few mm longer than the actual silver usb that plugs into the laptop. The model is Lexar Echo ZE Backup Drive USB flash drive – 32 GB & it can be found at,or.r_gc.r_pw.,cf.osb&biw=1440&bih=710&um=1&ie=UTF-8&tbm=shop&cid=17483535096552358036&sa=X&ei=0rOtTuCZA8bc8AO38MSZCA&sqi=2&ved=0CFwQ8wIwAw

    I have read online that a fake USB can be identified by weight, but mine is literally lighter than a protective cap on a regular USB drive so I don’t think that weight can be taken into consideration. My mini USB is stamped with 32GB on the top side of the silver USB connector. With all the fakes that have been on Ebay is there a way of telling fake from genuine or vetting sellers of storage. If not then I for one will choose to buy from a computer retail store where you get at the minimum a 12 months. I tracked a 512GB Kingston 310 waiting for the buyer to leave some sort of feedback, they left positive feedback so I searched for the buyer then sent them a message to advise them to look at SOSfakefl….. & to write lots of GB’s of info to see if it renders the drive corrupted. There has been no contact as yet so now I think that maybe I shouldn’t bother watching any of them or maybe Kingston do make a 512GB……………………….. I am somewhat confused with genuine or fake by just looking at a picture of a Kingston. Thanks for reading.

    I know the company thats making it, let me know if you want those details.

  3. @Maddy,

    If you know the company manufacturing DT310/512GB fakes (Counterfeits), please contact Kingston Technologies immediately!

    You can call them or contact the Kingston Technologies website in your geographical region, via technical support.

    Give them all the information and details you have.

    If you are uncomfortable because it could expose your identity, go to an internet cafe, create a free internet account and send them all the details via email. Then clear your cookies and internet cache.

    You are welcome to copy on your correspondence.

    SOSFakeFlash exposes fake flash memory sources for the Global buying public. It does lead to sellers being shut down. However it does not stop the manufacturing sources. Kingston Technologies has the resources, the manpower and the legal force to go after the manufactures, we don’t have the same budget or muscle they have.

    If you wish, you may send your information to the email address above. We prefer you tip off Kingston first. If you do decide to send us the details, we will give Kingston a 3 week lead before one of the FrankenFlash Projects sites publishes your information. It is to allow Kingston Technologies to investigate and move in first. Early exposure will only lead to the manufacturer going underground and suspending their operation to make DT310/512GB counterfeits – counter productive. Those involved need to be arrested and criminal charges iagainst them ssued .

    eBay is the end of the line for the DT310/512GB, striking at the manufacturing sources, is critical and proactive.

    Maddy, please give your information to Kingston Technologies now! You will be doing everyone a favour and also helping to stop sources for fake false memory! We want a fake flash free world, do you? ACT!
