This 16GB USB flash drive on ebay looks suspiciously cheap

leave a comment »

The price of the USB flash drives listed on ebay by seller clewdacris seems suspiciously low to us. Either these are a fabulous bargain or they will turn out to be counterfeit and fake capacity. We don’t know which will prove to be the case. A counterfeit and fake capacity flash drive corrupts files so wise buyers will test their items with h2testw before saving any valuable files to them.

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.

ebay fraudster in China pretends fake flash drives are in UK

The fake capacity flash drives listed by wangpeng000 are not (as claimed) in London but are in fact in China. If you buy a flash drive from this seller it will corrupt your files.

If this ebay member’s flash drives are genuine seller risks a loss

leave a comment »

USA seller bimmer408 has listed the USB flash drives shown above in ebay auctions with very low start prices. If they are genuine the seller risks making quite a loss. If, on the other hand, they are counterfeit and fake capacity items then buyers will end up with lost and corrupted files.

The tone of this seller’s listings do not inspire our confidence, however the seller does say:

ALL MY ITEMS ARE GUARANTEED TO BE 100% AUTHENTIC OR YOUR MONEY BACK.

We hope that bimmer408 will honour this pledge. 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.
