A selection of the USB flash drives sold by kh_shop is shown above. We think all USB flash drives from this seller will prove to be fake capacity. A fake capacity flash drive corrupts files. We wouldn’t touch flash memory from this seller with a barge pole.

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.

This 64GB USB flash drive on ebay Australia is a fake that corrupts files

This USB flash drive listed on ebay Australia by seller apexisx is a very obvious fake which has been programmed to display a false capacity to the operating system.

If you see a flash drive with the Sony Vaio logo you can be certain it is a fake. The Vaio logo is never used for flash drives. Any flash drive of this leather and steel type will be fake as will any flash drive, whatever it’s shape, coming in similar packaging to this. A fake capacity flash drive inevitably corrupts files after a while.

Another fraudster in China selling fake USB flash drives on ebay?

The ebay ID mxcxc2000 seems to be yet another being used by fraudsters in China to sell fake capacity USB flash drives that trash users’ data. We think that anyone who buys one of these 16GB flash drives will find after a while that it starts to corrupt files.

Any USB flash drive you see in this type of packaging is certain to be fake – every flash drive that came in this packaging which our team tested was fake capacity (programmed to display a false capacity to the operating system) and would have corrupted files had we used them.
