32GB Kingston DT200 flash drives from ebayer derigdon

The 32GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drives from ebay seller derigdon seem a little too cheap to us which makes us wonder whether this is yet another ebayer who fell into the the trap of buying from one of the fraudulent wholesale outlets selling fake capacity counterfeits. Buyers can check whether these are genuine or not by verifying the serial number with Kingston. If Kingston cannot verify the serial number then the flash drive is a fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts 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.
