64GB Kingston DataTraveler flash drives from ebayer 0penal likely fakes

We think it very unlikely that this USB flash drive being auctioned on ebay by 0penal is a genuine 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drive. We suspect it is a counterfeit and fake capacity USB flash drive that corrupts files purchased from a fraudulent supplier in China. In the unlikely event that we are wrong about this the buyer will be able to verify the serial number with Kingston.

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.
