Fake 32GB USB flash drive in private ebay auction

leave a comment »


Seller starflashxx uses private auctions to try and hide the fake flash memory being sold on ebay. We strongly advise people to avoid private auctions – generally a sign of fraud where flash memory is concerned. The flash drive pictured is a fake that will corrupt users’ files.

We have evidence that starflashxx sold fake SD memory cards – an alert on the seller was issued on these at sosfakeflash on November 11th. This seller also offers MP3/4 players – we expect they are also fake capacity items that will trash users’ pictures, video and music.

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