This 128GB USB flash drive sold by purebizarre on ebay is certain to be a fake that corrupts files.

Yet another ebay fraud ID selling fake flash drives from Singapore

The 64GB USB flash drive in this listing by rnb4everzz is a notorious fake capacity item that corrupts files. The ebay ID rnb4everzz no doubt belongs to a devious fraud ring in Singapore which determinedly continues to sell fake capacity USB flash drives on ebay.

Buy one of these and you will end up with lost and corrupted files after a while because these devices are programmed to report a fake capacity to the operating system. The real capacity of these drives is usually under 2GB.

We think this 32GB DT150 Kingston sold on ebay is counterfeit

amnon.bl (an ebay seller registered in Israel) sold a number of 32GB Kingston DataTraveler 150 flash drives at prices that no one could afford to sell at if the drives were genuine. This leads us to conclude that amnon.bl bought from a fraudulent supplier and that these are counterfeits. A counterfeit flash drive is always fake capacity and corrupts files.
