Seller ppgo2sell is yet another seller from China with a range of fake capacity flash drives that corrupt files. The model shown in this listing is the fake that has sold on ebay most consistantly for the longest. That must delight the fraud gangs in China as it is the easiest model to program to false capacities to fool the operating system (and thus the user) until the user’s data is lost or corrupted, usually too late for the buyer to claim a refund.

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.
