This model of USB flash drive listed on ebay by blackbur858 is fake capactity and corrupts files. There have been quite a few ebay sellers listing these on ebay in the last 10 days or so, all of whom obviously bought from fraudulent suppliers in China. This seller has also listed fake 128GB Kingston DT200 drives.

At least one seller who listed the flash drive in this listing has been suspended by ebay and had listings removed. This is the fate that anyone (other than the crafty fraudsters in the far east) selling fake flash memory items will face when the negatative feedback from buyers comes in.

Sellers are advised to do proper research into flash memory (what genuine items are available, the cost of flash memory etc) before buying flash memory items to sell on ebay – otherwise you are likely to land yourself in the brown sticky stuff!

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 still, if you are a seller, 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.
