with 2 comments


Seller shen_zhou_xing (based in China) is yet another ebay fraudster selling the fraudsters’ favourite flash drive on ebay. Anyone who bought one of these will eventually find all their data becomes corrrupt.

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.
