The 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drives in this ebay listing from vivimodf465 are too cheap to be anything but counterfeits. The fact that vivimodf465 is also selling a notorious fake model (64GB leather and steel type) indicates that the seller purchased from a fraudulent wholesale supplier. A counterfeit flash drive is also fake capacity and corrupts files once the real capacity is exceeded. The seller may be unaware they are fake.

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.
