gremlin2sfd0rt86Seller fd0rt86 is no longer a regisered user – we assume that ebay realised that this gremlin was selling fake 64GB USB flash drives.

We came across listings for the three models shown on the right on the USA site – all will corrupt users’ files once the true capacity is exceeded.

If you bought from this seller test your item immediately and claim a refund through paypal if (as expected) it is fake.

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.
