The 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drive pictured in this private ebay auction (item number 150551928131) and in a buy it now listing (item number 150553790144) from mak_i2k is a very obvious fake capacity counterfeit which corrupts files. Feedback indicates that this seller previously sold a fake 32GB Kingston Micro SDHC card:

The buyer was right in refusing to return it – sending counterfeits through the post is illegal.

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.
