The discontined model of Kingston flash drive shown in this ebay listing from kingimportz was not made in 16GB capacity – this seller obviously bought counterfeits from a fraudulent supplier. Anyone buying one of these will find it corrupts their files after a while because it is a fake capacity counterfeit. As these are fakes from a fraudulent supplier it is extremely likely that this applies to the other model being sold by kingimportz.

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.
