Another UK ebay seller with rather cheap 128GB Kingston

Seller george-taylor1 had not yet received the 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drives being sold on ebay when this listing went up. This means the seller has had no opportunity to check whether or not they are genuine.

We suggest that george-taylor1 checks the serial numbers with Kingston as soon as the shipment arrives as we suspect they will prove to be counterfeit and fake capacity.

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 testing confirms you have purchased fake capacity flash memory on ebay.
