jun_ting1218Seller jun_ting1218 offers several models of flash drive in buy it now listings on ebay including the fraudsters’ favourite (shown left) – this drive is a favourite because it is both very attractive and extremely easy to program to false capacities. This seller cleverly built up a huge feedback score with jewellery before listing flash drives which we are almost certain will turn out to be fake capacity.

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.
