If you bought a 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drive on ebay from seller xfdxdvc2010 you just got yourself a fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files. The buy it now price is not enough to buy the flash chips for a 32GB flash drive let alone to manufacture a 128GB flash drive. Wake up ebayers! There is no such thing as a free lunch!

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.

UPDATE: xdfxcv2010 has been suspended by ebay.
