tinfish53

Seller tinfish53 listed this very familiar fake USB flash drive. These always have a fake capacity whether they are advertised as 8GB, 16GB, 32GB or whatever – the result is lost and corrupted files when the true capacity is exceeded. We think other flash memory items sold by tinfish53 are also likely to be fakes.

As usual we strongly advise ebayers to test all flash memory with the free program h2testw.

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