Plenty of chance to destroy your data with these flash drives

Seller kuailedwo is offering ebayers of losing vast amounts of data with these “64GB” USB flash drives – all at amazing prices, but then of course they will be amazingly fake. Want to ditch all the family’s photos? Want to make your spreadsheets vanish? Better still – want an excuse for not doing your college assigments? Buy one of these and all this can be yours!

Photos gone, spreadsheets corrupted, no point in doing any asignments – if you’ve got one of these they can magically vanish at any time – just tell the tutor you saved them to the flash drive and they have disappeared!

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.

  1. If it is a fake you bought on ebay you should be able to get a refund through paypal. They should not ask you to return the drive but to destroy it and take photos of the destroyed item as evidence.
