gremlin2sFeels a bit like every time you log into ebay there’s another gremlin listing the fraudster’s favourite!

As ever we can say that without doubt the leather USB flash drive shown in this listing from fuhua88982009 will be nothing like 16GB. It is likely to corrupt any data saved on it after (probably) about 1.7GB or (less likely) about 3.5-3.7GB.

These flash drives are simply not safe to use – take it from someone who has a few that were supplied by the fraud gangs in China who spawn these gremlins!

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.
