64GB Kingston DataTraveler on ebay UK too cheap to be genuine

leave a comment »

The buy it now price in this listing from lse_urslf is far too low for these 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drives to be genuine. They will be counterfeits which corrupt users files once the true capacity (nowhere near 64GB) is used. The seller may be unaware that the supplier was fraudulent and supplied fakes. Genuine flash drives of this type have individual serial numbers that can be verified with Kingston – we are certain they won’t 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 your fake if testing confirms you have purchased fake capacity flash memory on ebay.
