Beware! The 128GB Kingston DataTraveler flash drives being sold on ebay by asgfdhytj123 are fake capacity counterfeits. The real capacity of these fakes (manufactured by fraudsters in China) is unlikely to be as much as 4GB. Once the true capacity of the drive is full everything will start to be lost and corrupted.

It costs more than the buy it now price in listings from sellers in China (guess where asgfdhytj123 is?) to manufacture the main components of a 128GB flash drive!!

You may be able to buy a lot of things at bargain prices on ebay but a genuine brand new flash drive (especially a brand name one) is not among the things you can get at a low price. Low price = fake when it comes to new flash memory items on ebay.

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.
