Devious ebay sellers listing 16GB flash drives as if in the UK

leave a comment »


Both seller caoyingying36 (sample listing shown above) and chenchunming36 have listed identical 16GB flash drives that have been proven to be fake capacity time and time again. These devious sellers with very recently registered ebay IDs are listing their items as being in the UK. This doesn’t fool us – but it may have fooled many unwary ebayers into thinking their items are ok. We are fairly certain these are fake capacity flash drives, but at the time of writing we have no proof.

As always 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.
