leave a comment »

Seller liying314 looks like yet another ebay seller in China selling fake flash drives. This type of flash drive (one of the most popular on ebay) has always proved to be progammed to show a fake capacity in tests conducted by members of the fightflashfraud team. A fake capacity USB flash drive always corrupts files. We think the same will apply to this item from liying314. Many thanks to Axel for alerting us to this seller.

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.
