This supposed 16GB USB flash drive listed on ebay by tangyong200906999 is almost certain to be fake capacity. We strongly suspect that this is yet another ID registered by one of the fraud gangs in China who have been selling fake capacity flash memory on ebay for a long time.

Scam merchants have robbed thousands of ebayers not only of their money (bad enough) but also of their computer files – much worse! Sometimes the fake memory items sold by these con merchants infected buyers’ computers with viruses (worse still) – ebayers please wake up!!

If you buy flash memory at a fantastic low price you will get a fantastic fake item. Your purchase will cause data loss and corruption. Not only that – in some cases it may even damage your computer.

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.
