counterfeit 16GB Kingston flash drives from ebayer the-v-unit will trash files

Seller the-v-unit has been auctioning two models of Kingston flash drive which were obviously purchased from a fraudulent supplier in China as the model in this ebay listing is not made in 16GB capacity. If this flash drive was genuine the capacity would be 32GB not 16GB.

This USB flash drive is in fact a fake capacity counterfeit and the real capacity is probably less than 2GB. Once the true capacity has been filled this counterfeit USB flash drive corrupts files. As the-v-unit made the mistake of buying from a fraudulent supplier the other model will also be fake.

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.
