ebay alert: hello.shopz sells notorious fake 128GB USB flash drive

leave a comment »

The supposedly 128GB USB flash drive in this ebay auction from hello.shopz is fake capacity and corrupts files. This leather and steel model is a notorious fake that has been sold by fraudsters on ebay in every fake capacity imaginable for a long time. We have never found one that had the advertised capacity. These are a great favourite with fraudsters because they are easy to program to fool the operating system into reporting whatever capacity the fraudsters think they might get away with.

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.
