Hong Kong based ebay seller focus-discount has been selling fake capacity MP players for some time. Now it seems from the listing below that this fraudster is expanding his operation to include fake capacity USB flash drives:


So far there is no feedback for flash drives but feedback from buyers indicates that these models of 8GB MP player currently on offer from this seller are fake capacity:

As ever we strongly advise ebayers to test all flash memory with the free program h2testw.

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