The 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drive listed by beloitbomber608 is bound to be counterfeit – no one could afford to list a genuine one at auction with such a low start price. Genuine DT200 flash drives have individual serial numbers that can be verified with Kingston. We don’t think they will verify this one.

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.

These 500GB Sony USB flash drives listed by seller mafadeg on ebay are fake fake fakity fake. There are no 500GB USB flash drives made by anyone let alone Sony. These drives will corrupt users’ files. The seller realises something is wrong with these but thinks it is ok to sell them – we disagree!

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

Seller nivipromi either made a loss on selling this 128Gb Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drive (ebay item number 130343326669) or the flash drive was a counterfeit. We suspect the latter. If it is genuine the buyer will be able to verify the serial number with Kingston. If it is counterfeit it will trash the buyer’s files.

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.
