snoopytypes Snoopy just had an email message on his laptop from an ebay member about this listing.

Snoopy had a look at the link the ebayer sent him and has some news for UK seller nienovaja. All flash drive tested by the frankenflash project that came in this packaging were fakes that would corrupt users’ files after a while.

The particular model listed here is the fraudsters’ favourite – which is always fake capacity whether it is in this packagang or not.

It will have nowhere near the 16GB stated by the supplier and suggest that nienovaja tests them with h2testw and demands a refund from the supplier, no doubt one of the fraudulent wholesalers in the far east.

We advise everyone to test all flash memory with the free program h2testw.

Report in to SOSFakeFlash if your testing confirms you have a false capacity device.
