Fake 128GB Kingston flash drives from ebayer nadiamarrakech

The 128GB Kingston DataTraveler USB flash drives being auctioned on ebay by nadiamarrakech are counterfeits purchased from a fraudulent supplier. A counterfeit flash drive is always fake capacity and corrupts files, and it is this that is causing the errors mentioned by the seller when trying to access files.

The files cannot be opened because they are corrupt and they are corrupt because there was no real space to save them in! The same applies to other flash drives listed on ebay as faulty – they are not faulty as such: they were deliberately programmed by fraudsters in China to report a false capacity!

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.
