This picture in a listing by Hong Kong based seller ceo1shop for an 8GB flash drive looks very dodgy – we strongly suspect it is fake. The packaging shown is commonly used for fakes and the image seems to have been tampered with! If you bought one you should test immediately with h2testw.

Report in to SOSFakeFlash if your testing confirms you have a false capacity device.

An ebay member has reported in to say that the item shown above failed testing with h2testw – if you bought flash drives from this seller test immediately with h2testw. Seems likely that the seller knows the drives are fake as buyer identities are obscured in listings.

We consider the listings shown above and below to be suspect. Who could afford to risk selling flash drives at this sort of loss? We think these are counterfeit and fake capacity drives bought from fraudulent wholesalers in China. Remember if the price of flash memory seems too good to be true you can bet it isn’t the bargain it seems. If you bought one you should test immediately with h2testw.
