Seller fine_collection123 has a range of fake capacity flash drives for ebayers to trash their data on – you can can corrupt large numbers of files with this seller’s flash drives.

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

UPDATE 11/11/09
We are given to understand that an ebay member who apparently bid on an item from this seller (or perhaps a different seller with the same item?) provided a link to this post in an ebay forum.

Having read this post he asked the seller to cancel the transaction. The seller asked this buyer to leave 5 star positive feedback in return for cancelling the transaction.


If you do, then you will make more victims! If a known or suspected fraudster selling flash memory items won’t cancel a transaction then pay (preferably through paypal using a credit card rather than debit card or from your bank account), wait for delivery, test the item immediately it arrives with h2tesw.

If the item fails this test report in to SOSFakeFlash with your test results and other info and claim a refund from the fraudster through paypal – you will find lots of useful advice about refunds on the sosfakeflash blog.
