tfross89Another obvious fake listed on ebay in Australia. The feedback for this seller shows something interesting – it looks as though 2 out of the 3 ebayers who bought these fakes realised there was a problem. Or perhaps the seller realised they were counterfeit after listing them.

The seller may have refunded those that gave the feedback about honesty – but what about the first buyer? It seems that this buyer did not realise – did this buyer also get a refund? Is the seller as honest as these buyers think? We don’t think so!


Why don’t we agree with the buyers? because it seems the seller bought a bulk lot of these (probably 50) and is now knowingly selling the remaining 48 as a lot for AU $800.00 for someone else to do the dirty with!

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.
