Ebay seller courtneay123 obviously went shopping in fake flash land as there are not 256GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drives – these are manufactured by fraudsters in China. Anyone who buys one of these USB flash drives will discover that it is a fake capacity counterfeit and 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.

UPDATE 310/10/10

We just noticed ebay item number 260684197538 – this is an unbranded fake capacity flash drive that corrupts files – there are as yet no genuine unbranded 256GB flash drives and when there is a genuine one you won’t be able to buy it for as little as £39.99!!
