Is ebay seller xiudoumix offering authentic 128GB Kingston flash drives on ebay for $25? Of course not! A quick phone call to Kingston to check the serial number of one of these supposedly authentic 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drives would soon disabuse any buyer of the notion that they had a genuine item. That is IF the fraudsters in China who manufacture these even bothered to give a fake serial number!

Testing with h2testw would reveal how tiny the capacity of these fake USB flash drives. A fake capacity USB flash drive like these corrupts files after a while.

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.
