Dodgy ebay listings for 256GB Kingston flash drive from buddybottle

We are certain that the 256GB Kingston flash drives from buddybottle will turn out to be fake capacity counterfeits that corrupt files. Although there is no picture in listings the title identifies the model as the DataTraveler 200 which is not made in 256GB capacity. Nobody that we have heard of has multiple high capacity flash drives that are unwanted – so we suspect this seller is being somewhat less than truthful.

Update 15/01/2911
We just spotted ebay item number 260720762976 from seller buddybottle – it has a picture of the supposed 256GB Kingston flash drives – and guess what? They are very obvious fake capacity counterfeits – anyone who buys one of these USB flash drives will find that it corrupts their 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.
