Seller aetdinger is not selling faulty 256 Kingston USB flash drives in this listing – they are total fakes!! Apart from anything else the Kingston DataTraveler 200 is not made in this capacity!! These are counterfeits purchased by this buyer from a fraudulent supplier. They are not worth £3, let alone £31.

We have seen a worrying trend recently – ebay sellers who purchase counterfeit and fake capacity flash drives selling them as faulty to recoup their loss. They are no such thing – these fakes are only fit for one thing – smashing up with a hammer so that no one can ever use them.

We consider the sale of these fakes (especially where the seller uses a private listing, as aetdinger has done) to be fraud. Foolish buyers are misled into thinking they might get something worthwhile – they won’t. They will simply have wasted their money on something useless.

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.
