This listing from ebay seller ilicitano27 shows very obviously counterfeit and fake capacity flash drives. Had ebay been paying any real attention to what people list on their site they should have spotted it immediately. The Kingston DataTraveler 200 USB flash drive is not offered in multiple colour options as this listing appears to suggest – and it is not made in 256GB capacity.

The DataTraveler 200 is (like most Kingston flash drives) colour coded according to capacity – and one of the colours shown in the picture doesn’t exist at all in any capacity!! Fake Fake Fakity fake!

If ilicitano27 had looked at the Kingston website then this seller would have known better than to put up this listing.

Had ebay being paying any real attention they would have realised these were fake immediately.

It seems ebay is asleep at the wheel!

Why do we KEEP having to point out the absolutely obvious??

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.
