Seller kent-appliances obviously went shopping in fake flash land.

The 128GB Kingston DT200 flash drives sold by this ebay member (see listing above) were counterfeit and fake capacity rather than (as the seller assumed) faulty.

If kent-appliances bought the 16GB Sony pro-duo memory cards shown on the left from the same supplier they will also be counterfeit, fake capacity items which corrupt files.

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. Many thanks to the ebay member who drew this seller’s listings to our attention!

If you notice dodgy listings on ebay for flash memory and the seller is not mentioned here let us know by leaving a comment on the report suspect sellers page.
