Looks like yet another new fraud ID set up on ebay China

leave a comment »


Here again we find a new ID registered in China listing 16GB flash drives at too low a price for it to be likely that they are genuine. We expect that the flash drives being sold by hlusb88 will turn out as usual to be fraudulently re-programmed 2GB or 4GB drives that fool the operating system. Such drives are dangerous for anyone who values their files as they cause file loss and data corruption. As usual 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.
