Seller in Austria listing a range of suspect flash drives on ebay

leave a comment »


Seller isis-line (based in Austria) seems to have been on a shopping trip to fakeflashland and come back with the fraudsters’ favourite shown above and some other familiar models of flash drive. We suspect all will turn out to be fake capacity drives which cause data loss and corruption. The seller may be unaware that there is likely to be a problem with the merchandise – perhaps some kind ebayer in Germany will warn isis-line.

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 your fake if testing confirms you have purchased fake capacity flash memory on ebay.
