We think it is highly unlikely that the 128GB Kingston flash drives or the 64GB generic flash drives listed on ebay by 666secret666 are genuine. We think they were purchased from one of the many fraudulent wholesalers who sell fakes that trash users’ files. The Kingston drives would all have individual serial numbers that can be used to verify them if they were genuine. We don’t think Kingston will verify these. Like many sellers 666secret666 probably has no idea that these are likely to be fake.

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.
