The authors of this blog want to elimnate flash fraud on Ebay

Is this German ebayer selling fake 32GB flash drives?

leave a comment »

We found this item on ebay in Germany suspect on sight. Why? because the “size” of the drive is printed on a shiny little sticker much favoured by fraudsters in China. A negative feedback comment left by a buyer tends to support our conclusion that this is not a real 32GB flash drive.  Here is the comment in the original German and translated into English:

Artikel entsprach nicht der Beschreibung! NUR ABZOCKE! reagiert nicht auf Mails
This translates as:
Article did not correspond to the description! ONLY RIP-OFF! did not reply to mails

If you bought this drive from seller nurnacktistbilliger2009 (registered in Germany on January 25th) test it with h2testw immediately – you are at grave risk of losing your files!

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