Seller j.loassociates (registered on ebay USA) seems to be suffering from a degree of confusion if the listing pictured above (ebay item 190374321509) is anything to go by! Perhaps this person needs to be referred to a neurologist? There is obviously some sort of problem with this seller’s cognitive abilites, memory or something else that caused the complete jumble in this listing.

As you can see the title announces what is being sold as 8GB flash drives – but the Kingston DataTraveler 200 shown in the picture is not made in this capacity. In the main body of the listing the seller announces it as:

New Kingston Brand 16 GB DataTraveler 200 USB Flash Drive

However, the model shown in the picture is not made in 16GB either. It seems that j.loassociates cannot make up his or her mind what is being sold here – but we’d bet our bottom dollar that it turns out to be a fake capacity USB flash drive that corrupts files! We certainly wouldn’t touch them with a barge-pole.

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.
