Fraudster in China sells fake 32GB USB flash drives on ebay USA

Gremlin seller abcdg204609 offers the two models of fake 32GB USB flash drive shown above. Anyone who bought one will end up with lost and corrupted files eventually. This is because, although the operating system will see them as 32GB, this is far from the truth – the capacity will be much smaller. When the true capacity is reached there is nowhere for data to go so files are overwritten or corrupted.

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.
