Looks like counterfeit 128GB Kingston flash drives on ebay Australia

leave a comment »


We think it very likely that the 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drives listed by fuschiagirl on ebay Australia are counterfeit and fake capacity. Real ones have individual serial numbers and can be verified by Kingston. We don’t think Kingston will verify the ones listed by fuschiagirl.

This seller probably got them from one of the many fraudulent sellers supplying counterfeits that trash users’ files. We suggest the seller checks with Kingston and tries to get a refund from the supplier if we are right.

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.
