This USB flash drive is a very obvious fake – any flash drive with a little shiny capacity sticker like the one in this picture is certain to be fake capacity and corrupts files.

Seller leopardas24 has listed a large number of these in ebay auctions. We have suspected for some time that flash drives sold by leopardas24 were fakes bought from a fraudulent supplier, now we are absolutely certain.

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.
