We don’t see that seller b.michigan.dx33 would take the risk of listing these 128GB Kingston flash drives on ebay USA at below the price paid for them. Therefore we conclude that they were too cheap to be genuine and came from one of the many fraudulent wholesale outlets.

The seller may be unaware that there is such a thing as counterfeit and fake capacity flash drives – which is what we think these are.

This seller is giving away 64GB brand name flash drives with the writeable DVDs being sold. The DVDs are probably fine but we’d suggest that buyers take a hammer to the flash drives rather than using them as we think they will be fakes that trash users’ files.

We advise everyone to test all flash memory with the free program h2testw.

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