Ukranian seller frendbuy says in the listing for this patently fake Kingston:

New Kingston datatraveler 128GB USB Flash with quarantee

The only things that can be guarenteed about this flash drive is that it was not made by Kingston, it is not 128GB and anyone using one will end up with lost and corrupted files. Despite being advised to the contrary this seller insisted these were genuine. Some people just won’t listen!

We advise everyone who buys flash memory items to test them with the free program h2testw irrespective of where they were purchased – otherwise you run the risk of data loss and corruption.

Report in to SOSFakeFlash if your testing confirms you have purchased a false capacity device on ebay.
