czerepakp lists 128GB flash drive on ebay that corrupts files

leave a comment »

The model of flash drive in this ebay listing from czerepakp is always fake capacity and corrupts files. It is sold by just about every fraudulent wholesale outlet in China. Lots of ebay sellers make the mistake of buying these because they look so attractive – and lots of buyers (including members of our team!) have fallen into the trap of buying them from sellers on ebay for the same reason! Looks great, but trashes your data!!
