The leather and metal type flash drive in this ebay listing from midwest.story is a notorious fake that is easily programmed by fraudsters to appear to be any old capacity they fancy. The real capacity is often under 1GB and never more than 4GB. This fake capacity flash drive corrupts files. Seller midwest.story is part of a fraud gang in Singapore that has been operating on ebay for some time.

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.
