128GB Kingston flash drive from ebayer afantech sure to be counterfeit

with one comment

We are certain that this 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 listed on ebay by afantech is counterfeit, fake capacity, and corrupts files. In the very unlikely event that it is genuine the buyer will be able to confirm this with Kingston by giving them the serial number. However, we don’t think so – in fact we’d all fall down in a faint if this happened!

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.

  1. It would seem that the seller withdraw this item from sale, or at least there were no foolish buyers. I am advised that a well meaning member contacted this seller and advised them to read this report.
