The flash drives sold on ebay by wajdzik78 do not look remotely like the Kingston DataTraveler 200.
The closest Kingston flash drive to the one pictured is the HyperX which was only made in capacities up to 32GB:

This seller obviously bought from one of the many fraudulent suppliers selling fake capacity counterfeits.

Anyone who bought one of these is sure to find it corrupts their files after a while.

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.
