Anyone who knows their Kingston flash drives would instantly realise that the flash drive in this ebay listing from hedisaadi is not a genuine 64GB Kingston. If this flash drive was genuine the capacity would be 2GB not 64GB – and in fact this particular model has never been made in 64GB capacity.

What we have here is a fake capacity counterfeit Kingston manufactured by fraudsters in China. This flash drive corrupts files once the true capacity (probably 2GB or less) has been filled with files.

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.

This obvious fake USB  flash drive apparently sold for 30.50 euros with 10 euro shipping charges.
