Check serial number for DT200 from ebayer attilam32 with Kingston

leave a comment »

As attilam32 has already sold one of these 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drives at auction on ebay for a rather low price we would have expected the seller to switch to buy it now if these were genuine. Buyers should check the serial number of their flash drive using Kingston’s verification system. If there is no serial number on the back of the pack, or the number cannot be verified by Kingston, then the USB 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.
