Who would list a genuine 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drive with a start price of 1 cent having (apparently) already sold one for less than a third of the retail price??

Seller jivx has done just that – if these were genuine (and the sale is real) then jivx would already have lost at least a hundred dollars on the first sale. We can only think of one rational explanation – this is yet another seller who bought fake flash memory from a fraudulent supplier. If we are right then these will corrupt users’ files after a while.

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.
