Buyers can be jerks too!
I was duped and sold 54 of those Kingston chips on eBay. When another seller informed me he'd gotten fakes, I tested what stock I had. Every one was a fake. I IMMEDIATELY issued a recall to EACH buyer and refunded purchase price and return shipping if they asked for it. One buyer responded with profanity and feedback extortion threat which I reported to eBay. This was before he received the item even. I told him i would refund when I got the chip back. He said he sent it back Dec 20, when tracking showed it delivered. He issued a complaint with PayPal and they suspended the transaction (Held funds) BUT told him he had to send it back to get the refund and have tracking proof of delivery.
Checking the USPS tracking number showed he then mailed it back Dec 29(9 days after he said he'd returned it). The day I received it back, I settled the claim and he had his money back. And even though he'd threatened feedback extortion, Ebay allowed his negative feedback to stand. All of the rest of the feedback received for the items sold and recalled was positive (with one neutral). I did have a 100% feedback score until he came along.
All that to say, YES file the claim. You have a limited time to make those claims.
I filed a claim on the supplier who sold me the items because I used paypal. I got refunded on 2 shipments and am still fighting to get the third.
Last point, somewhere in researching about fakes, I read where someone had actually contacted Kingston and was told that they don't make that chip yet. I have an email contact into Kingston customer support to see if I can get that verified.
I have an Android powered tablet with 2 microSD slots. I will use the 16GB micros, thank you.
