These 128GB USB flash drives on ebay USA look like fakes to us

ezshopline

We think the 128GB USB flash drives sold by ezshopline are fake capacity and will eventually trash users’ files. The seller (like many other ebay sellers) no doubt bought these from one of the many fraudulent wholesalers that sell fake flash memory.

Seller ezshopline may not be aware that they are fake – like many other people the seller probably just looked at the properties and assumed that what it said there is correct. This is far from the truth – fakes are programmed to lie to the operating system about the capacity.

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.

Seller eastdragon2010 is yet another fraudster from China offering you the chance to trash your files with fake flash drives (alongside sales of ties and wedding dresses to build positive feedback).

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.
