These flash drives listed on ebay India by 9820220717 are not genuine Kingston.

Kingston does not sell any swivel type flash drives in 32GB capacity that look like this. These are fakes that were no doubt produced by fraudsters in China.

Not only are they not made by Kingston but they will also have a much smaller capacity than 32GB.

The result of this is that they will corrupt files once the true capacity is exceeded. To learn the truth about the capacity of flash memory items you need to test them. Looking at drive properties will not tell you anything but what the fraudsters who program these devices want you to see.

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.
