Seller maximzakhmax has obviously been shopping in fake flash land as the supposedly 256GB leather and steel flash drives are notorious fakes produced by fraudsters in China. This seller obviously bought both these and the 256GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 listed on ebay at the same buy it now price (impossibly low for a genuine 256GB flash drive anyway) from the same fraudulent supplier.

The supplier was no doubt one of the fraudulent wholesale outlets in China who peddle their fake wares on websites such as alibaba, tradetang, aliexpress, dhgate etceteras. Ebay sellers beware! Do your research before you buy flash memory items to sell on ebay – there are a lot of fraudulent suppliers out there!!

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.
