Gremlin ID lists one model of 32GB flash drive on ebay

with 6 comments


gremlin2sHere we go again – one of the apparently disposable gremlin IDs registered on ebay China listing a familiar model of flash drive.

We are certain the USB flash drives from errtgiojsdhf09 will prove to be fake capacity.

Fake capacity flash memory items will eventually cause file loss and corruption for anyone using them.

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.

    Dear friend! … Thursday, 8 October, 2009 9:28:06 … Hi, I am willing to give you a big surprise: I bought an Apple Mac book one week ago from this website. Now, I have received it. This product quality is very good. They also sell phones, TV, motors and so on. By the way, they mainly sell new and original products and they have many good feedback. Because china is holding their ?National day? now, so many companies are promoting their products. Koreadeal website also have very competitive prices. If you need these products, you can have a look. It is a good chance that you should not lose. Greetings!
    if anyone has had this problem please let me know.
