Ebay member isoldit.fl215 has listed a number of 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drives for sale – we think this seller (like many others) bought from one of the many fraudulent wholesale outlets selling counterfeit and fake capacity memory. Genuine flash drives of this type have individual serial numbers that can be verified with Kingston. We don’t think Kingston is likely to verify these.

EBAY SELLERS – PLEASE CHECK THAT YOUR MERCHANDISE IS GENUINE BEFORE LISTING IT FOR SALE!

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.
