Every day, new listings appear on eBay for DT310 DataTraveler usb flash drives and most don’t last very long as eBay under pressure from Kingston Technologies is forced to remove the counterfeits. eBay does not catch all the sellers, some survive for as long a week. A lot of eBay sellers rant and rave at SOSFakeFlash and FakeMemorySentinel, for being caught with DT310 fakes. Where did they buy them to sell on eBay? From an authorized Kingston reseller or Kingston Technologies? No. So far not one seller reported at either site has sent SOSFakeFlash an RMA from Kingston Technologies attesting to the fact the items were genuine Kingston products and indeed defective DT310 usb flash drives. They imported them from a Chinese internet wholesaling site. You can now buy them for as little as 2.90 US On Alibaba.com.
If eBay sellers were stupid enough to think they could get real capacity flash memory DT310 at such unbelievable prices, should you feel sorry for them? Who suffers most from their mistakes? Did they refund you the files you lost?
If eBay catches the seller, the id will most likely be suspended and you have a good chance of getting your money back for a DT310 fake. Should you be thanking eBay? If you answer yes, you are unfortunately ill informed as a flash memory victim on eBay. The only reason you might be getting your money back is because of the thousands of eBay buyers who have complained before you, the time they spent to warn other buyers for a seller and also the effort of volunteers who slave away at the FrankenFlash project sites trying to protect you and to force eBay to refund you.
Do not be naive in assuming it was solely your own effort that got you a refund. It is the pressure on a global internet scale that has helped you.
eBay sellers are blind, they do not research their product, they run to internet sites in China to import the fakes into their home country. You are the ones who pay the price for their greed and stupidity.
