Fake 64GB USB flash drive deliberately dumped on buyer?

with 2 comments

jogias_electronics Did UK seller jogias_electronics deliberately dump this 64GB Sony fake on an unsuspecting buyer? After getting a warning from an ebay member that this item was fake the seller ended the listing 3 days early. Not to remove it from sale but apparently to sell to the current high bidder. The fact that the buyer ID was hidden makes it seem likely that jogias_electronics is a deliberate fraudster who dumped the fake quick to avoid being de-registered. This was a criminal act. So was posting the item – which breaks the law in the UK and many other countries. If you bought this item test it with h2testw and claim a refund through paypal.

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 on 15th March
This seller has a current buy it now listing for this item – steer well clear!
