Gremlin from China lists an unusual fake 64GB USB flash drive

absolutehiGremlin seller absolutehi listed an unusual fake 64GB USB flash drive on ebay. The model above appears to be a long discontinued Kingston model that was never made in 64GB. Either these are totally counterfeit or fraudsters bought up discontinued Kingston stock and re-programmed them to the false capacity of 64GB.

Either way they are file corrupters – as all other flash drives sold by absolutehi will be. 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.
