The model of flash drive shown in this ebay listing from online_show (regisered in China) has alway proved to be fake capacity in testing by the team at fightflashfraud. We don’t think this one will be any different. We think that any USB flash drive from this seller will turn out to be fake capacity – which corrupts files.

The use of private auctions is a common ploy among fraudsters selling fake capacity flash drives and other fake flash memory items. Steer well clear of flash memory in private auctions – they help fraudsters hide the evidence of their dirty deeds

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.
