Fighting flash fraud on Ebay

The authors of this blog want to elimnate flash fraud on Ebay

Young ebay gremlin lists 120GB Sony USB flash drives for sale!

befeskstThis 120GB flash drive listed by befeskst is fake fake fakity fake.

There is no such thing as a 120GB USB flash drive made by Sony or anyone else for that matter!

It simply is not a capacity used for flash drives – only hard drives come in this capacity.

The nearest capacity of USB flash drive available is 128GB and genuine ones cost considerably more than this.

gremlin2s All the flash drives sold by befeskst will be fakes which corrupt users’ files once the true capacity is exceeded. Anyone who bought from this seller should test immediately and claim a refund from this fraudster through paypal.

Looking at the drive properties will tell you nothing – the drives are programmed to fool the operating system into seeing a false capacity.

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

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