We don’t beleive for a moment that these 64GB USB flash drives listed on ebay by 007nothingss are genuine. We think what we have here is yet another fake capacity flash drive that corrupts files.

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.

seller lists obvious fake USB flash drives on ebay Netherlands

The 64GB USB flash drive in this listing from auktion818 (registered in Switzerland) is certain to be a fake capacity drive which corrupts files. Every single one sold in this packaging tested by members of our team proved to be a fake. This seller obviously bought these from a fraudulent supplier.

Here we have yet another fraudulent ebay listing for a fake capacity USB flash drive that corrupts files. The ebay ID mo5310064688 no doubt belongs to one of the long-time fraud gangs operating out of Hong Kong. These gangs have sold thousands and thousands of fake flash drives that corrupt users’ files.

The ebay ID supermanz2012z is yet another being used by a criminal fraud gang, this time in Singapore, to sell these fake capacity USB flash drives on ebay. The two IDs seem to be using an identical picture in their listings

Another UK ebayer lists obvious fake USB flash drives for sale

Seller headford-trading has listed these very obvious fake flash drives (item number 290405689291) for sale on ebay. Not made by Sony and not 128GB. This USB flash drive is fake capacity and corrupts files. The seller offers two other models of USB flash drive which will be equally fake. The seller seems to be drop-shipping from Hong Kong. Steer well clear of drop-shipped flash memory – it is pretty certain to be fake. The seller may be unaware of the problem.

The ebay IDs u1u3.u3u8 and funclubbing.09 are yet more belonging to a Singapore based fraud ring selling fake capacity USB flash drives which corrupt files. Never buy a flash drive that looks like this – it always corrupts files.
