We suspect that the 256GB Kingston DataTraveler 310 flash drives in the listing above (ebay item number 280529583925) and the 32GB Kingston DataTraveler 150 (ebay listing number 280530019305) being auctioned for charity with a 10% donation to Great Ormond Street children’s hospital by 99pcornershop are fake capacity counterfeits which corrupt files.

The fact that all this seller’s auctions are private seems a little odd to us – if you are helping such a good cause as GT Ormond St what have you got to hide?? After all it’s not as if 99pcornershop is selling gimp masks, Viagra, naughty undies, cars, houses or anything else we might expect to be private!

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.
