The buy it now price in this ebay listing from seller drapoleg is too low for these 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drives to be genuine. Anyone who buys one will find themselves with a fake capacity counterfeit USB flash drive that corrupts files.

Seller drapoleg already sold one of these fakes at auction on 6th October (ebay item number 170549345715) – was this a trial run by the seller to see if he or she could get away with it?

Seller drapoleg looks a bit like a dodgy seller to us anyway as the ebay ID was changed in 2009 – an ID change is usually a sign of a seller who is running away from annoyed customers! Of course there is always the remote possibility that our suspicions that this may be a case of deliberate fraud are unfounded…

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.
