If this 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drive being auctioned on ebay by oreoali2009 is genuine then this seller is very likely to make a loss. If it is (like most of those sold on ebay) a counterfeit then it will be fake capacity and a fake capacity USB flash drive corrupts files. Genuine DT200 flash drives have individual serial numbers which can be verified with Kingston.

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.
