UK ebay member lists a very obvious fake 64GB flash drive

with 2 comments

ilike2fuk The tiny picture used in a listing for a fake 64GB does not disguise the fact that this is a fake. An ebay member reported this item to the team and he is quite right. This is a fake capacity drive. Seller ilike2fuk says that it is ideal for storing films, music and data – fightflashfraud says it is ideal for losing you films music and data! If you bought one you should test it immediately with h2testw – you are at grave risk of losing your files!

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

UPDATE This seller has now relisted this, removed the picture and is giving 10% of the ill gotten gains to Cancer research! Ooh he must be a nice person then – we don’t think!

  1. Hi Lol,
    It was thanks to your comment on sosfakeflash that a post about this item appeared here – we rely on ebay members reporting in with suspect items. The seller may not actually know the item is fake – maybe you could contact this person and tell them then, if the seller does not remove the listings report them to ebay so that they remove them.
