US ebay seller with suspect flash drives in private auctions

leave a comment »

We think the USB flash drives listed by usb09 are likely to be fake capacity – one model offered by this seller always proves to be a fake that corrupts files and generally if a seller has one fake then all are fake. The use of private auctions suggest that the seller is aware they are fake, as does the fact that the seller was apparently suspended by ebay for a while.

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.
