Seller on ebay Belgium lists suspected counterfeit Kingston

We suspect the 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 150 USB flash drives listed on ebay by are counterfeit and fake capacity. Fakes corrupt users’ files after a while. The seller may be unaware that these could well be fakes. The serial numbers of genuine Kingston drives of this type can be verified with Kingston.

As usual we strongly advise ebayers to test all flash memory with the free program h2testw.

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