Seller dublinia10 has obviously bought from a fraudulent supplier as among the range of USB flash drives this ebayer has listed for sale are the three very obvious fakes shown above, none of which come from Sony or Kingston.

They were manufactured by fraudsters in China and are fake capacity flash drives which will corrupt files. As it is likely all the flash drives this seller has listed came from the same supplier it is fairly certain that all will be fakes.

PLEASE ebay sellers – do your research before buying flash memory items to sell on ebay otherwise you are very likely to find yourself (like dublinia10) listing fakes for sale. We advise everyone who buys flash memory items to test them with the free program h2testw irrespective of where they were purchased – otherwise you (or your customers) run the risk of data loss and corruption.

Report your fake if testing confirms you have purchased fake capacity flash memory on ebay.
