Fraudsters’ favourite flash drive with unusually high capacity

According to feedback from the buyer of this item it proved to have a capacity of 8GB – surprisingly high for the fraudsters’ favourite – normally it is only 4GB or less. The fact that it is higher capacity than usual makes this fake even more dangerous as irretreivable data loss is even more likely.

We advise everyone who buys flash memory items to test them with the free program h2testw irrespective of where they were purchased – otherwise you run the risk of data loss and corruption.

Report in to SOSFakeFlash if your testing confirms you have purchased a false capacity device on ebay.
