The model of Kingston USB flash drive sold in this ebay listing from seller viktoria84 is not made in 128GB capacity. This USB flash drive is counterfeit and fake capacity. It was manufactured by fake flash fraudsters in China. This ebayer obviously bought from a fraudulent wholesale supplier – there are lots in China that sell counterfeit and fake capacity USB flash drives. This USB flash drive will corrupt files after a time.

Had viktoria84 checked the Kingston web site to see what is really available before buying from a wholesale outlet this seller would have realised that the wholesaler was supplying counterfeits that will trash people’s data. We advise everyone who buys flash memory items to test them with the free program h2testw irrespective of where they were purchased – otherwise you (or worse – your customers!) run the risk of data loss and corruption.

Report your fake if testing confirms you have purchased fake capacity flash memory on ebay.
