Flash drive on ebay is drop-shipped from China and will be fake

Seller junqi1242 (located in the Phillipines) lists the item location as being China. This means a drop-shipping operation is involved. Drop shipping from China is bad news when it comes to flash memory – any flash memory item drop-shipped from China is likely to be fake.

In the case of this 64GB USB flash drive listed by junqi1242 there is no doubt it is fake capacity and will trash users’ files. It is far too cheap to be anything other than a fake.

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