gremlin2sThis flash drive listed on ebay by xufan8y is a notorious fake sold in a range of false capacities. This leather and steel flash drive is a favourite with fraudsters because it is easy to program to any old capacity they feel like.

The real capacity usually turns out to be 2GB or less. Once the real capacity is exceeded files begin to vanish or become corrupt.

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.
