On July 4th, 2009 SOSFakeFlash Published: Ebay Fraud! Seller digitalting0303 Evades Justice – Defies eBay – Massive Scam! digitalting0303’s fake flash biography. He is a two time offender.

We are please that eBay has marched him back to fake flash prision. We hope they will keep digitalting0303 and throw away the key. It demonstrates a 3 month suspension will not cure a seller of fake flash selling. The profits are just to addicting.

digitalting0303 in his second round of fake flash selling, used private auctions. It did not make it impossible to catch him, it only took longer and created a many victims.

eBay could easly improve the catching of such fraudsters by not permitting anyone to use private auctions for any flash based items, whether memory cards, mp players, or usb flash drives. It is against the intent for such auctions and sellers like digitalting0303 exploit the flaw. See: eBay Private Auction Listings – eBay Fake Flash Sellers Prefer – Victims Learn The Meaning The Hard Way – A Guide

If you bought any items from digitalting0303 please rush your claim to PayPal. Select five people who bought from this seller in the last 30 days at random, send them a message and warn them. If the item number is private, you know it is a fake flash device! That is your possible contribution to finding this article, warning you.

Genuine or Counterfeit Kingston DT150 64GB DataTraveler – Quick Detection – A Guide

Posted by KittyFireFlash on May 21, 2009

Kingston DT150 64GB DataTraveler usb flash drive pensticks are being counterfeited – how can you tell? Recently fake Kingston DT150 64GB DataTraveler flash drives began to appear on eBay, it is growing with alarming speed! eBay is not the only place you will find them, they are available at internet wholesaling sites in the orient.

What is the quickest inspection you can do to find out if you bought a counterfeit? Kingston engaves it’s usb connector for the DT150 64GB DataTraveler.

DT150 Kingston DataTraveler

Here are other signs reported by victims when they compare counterfeits to the genuine Kingston DT150 64GB DataTraveler:

1. The main font is slightly (but definitely) different.
2. The actual USB plug is mounted upside down – such that the indicator light (which doesn’t work anyway) is facing downward when the drive is plugged in normally.
3. The lanyard hole is round as opposed the slightly square on the real Kingston.
4. Plastic moulding is poorly finished, with seams and visible.
5. The burgundy coloured outer finish is a very cheap & nasty stick on affair that doesn’t [quite] fit at the edge reliefs.

On a real one the USB connector is engraved and the back of the package has a second Bar Code sticker (see pictures below).

  1. The counterfeits don’t have a blue light (although there is a spot for it).
  2. The counterfeits are put together backwards, note on the real one pictured here you can see the copper path through the holes in the USB connector on the counterfeits its black from that side because they are backwards.
  3. The counterfeit is very light in weight, less half the weight.
  4. The best way to tell is the size of registered trademark symbol ® after the words DataTraveler on the front side that has 64GB on it, the counterfeit has a very small ®, about the size of one of the small dots on the surface, on a real one its over twice as big ®, see the pictures and compare.

This is the counterfeit and you can see how tiny the registered trademark symbol ® is compared to the genuine drive. Note that counterfeits unlike a genuine drive can come in several different variations.

The other thing that usually distinguishes genuine Kingston Flash drives from counterfeits is the packaging. Look at the back.

Genuine Kingston DT150 64GB DataTravelerBackCounterfeit Kingston DT150 64GB DataTravelerBack

Some counterfeits to have serial number information but you can easliy verify see: Kingston USB Flash Drives – Detect Counterfeits And Fakes – Product Verification Kingston can help with their detection site to determine if the Kingston DT150 64GB DataTraveler you bought is genuine.
