The price that this 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drive listed by myatiqah fetched at auction is too low for the seller to have made anything but a loss if it is genuine. Genuine DT200 drives have individual serial numbers that can be verified with Kingston.

We have a feeling that Kingston will not verify this one – we think it is more likely that seller myatiqah bought from one of the fraudulent wholesale outlets supplying counterfeit and fake capacity memory that corrupts users’ files. The seller may have no idea that these are counterfeit.

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.
