We are certain that the 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 150 USB flash drives sold by UK ebayer weromax in private auctions are counterfeit. Any counterfeit USB flash drive is also fake capacity and corrupts 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.

UPDATE: 13/-2/2010
Having run into problems this seller is now listing these as faulty – they are not faulty. They are counterfeit and fake capacity USB flash drives which corrupt files. The sale of such items is actually illegal.
