The supposedly no-name 64GB flash drive in this private ebay auction (item number 320613004374) from zak0114 is sure to be a counterfeit Kingston DataTraveler 200 if the picture is anything to go by. The seller says in this listing:

Item Brand – Unknown
As the item is unopened and sealed in it’s original packaging we can not take any responsibility for any defaults or problems with the USB.

Didn’t the seller notice that every ebay listing holds the seller responsible for the item listed?? Every listing carries the line “Seller assumes all responsibility for this listing.” What does zak0114 think this means??

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.
