The 128GB Kingston DataTraveler flash drives in this ebay listing from tpyboc are far too cheap to be anything other than fake capacity counterfeits manufactured by fraud gangs in China. A fake capacity flash drive corrupts files whether it is a generic (no brand) fake or a counterfeit (copy of a brand name item) – the main differences between a counterfeit and a generic fake are:

  1. The sale of counterfeits breaks even more laws than the sale of generic fakes.
  2. The sale of counterfeits can damage a reputable brand.

If you bought a counterfeit flash memory item on ebay or elsewhere on the Internet we would suggest you contact the company in question (Kingston in this case) and tell them about the seller.

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.
