The buy it now price for the 128GB DataTraveler 200 USB flash drives listed by US seller woffordk5 is too cheap for them to be genuine. We think this is yet another ebayer who bought from a fraudulent wholesaler. These flash drives should have individual serial numbers that can be used to verify genuine drives. We doubt very much if Kingston will verify these.

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.
