anika8787 reselling fake flash drive from dragon_wallet2008 on ebay

This supposedly 32GB USB flash drive listed on ebay by anika8787 is fake capacity and corrupts files. It seems that anika8787 bought this fake on ebay from dragon_wallet2008 for under 17 Euros in June and is now trying to sell it at a profit. Buyers would be much better off buying a genuine 4GB flash drive elsewhere as it will store at least as much as this bit of sh1t and probably more – with the bonus that it won’t corrupt files!

The seller claims to have tested it and says it has a real capacity of 32GB. We can only assume that all this seller did was stick it in the computer and look at the drive properties (which would indeed show 32GB due to fraudulent programming by fraudsters in China) rather than testing with h2testw.

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.
