128GB leather flash drive listed on ebay by mcs297 is fake

leave a comment »

This leather and metal model of flash drive listed by mcs297 on ebay is a notorious fake capacity flash drive which corrupts files. Although the capacity of fake flash drives appears to be as advertised when you look at the drive properties this is due to fraudulent programming of the control chip. We suspect this ebayer may have bought this fake on ebay from suspended fraudster star88909 in June. You’d think that mcs297 might have thought it was a little suspicious when the only item purchased vanished from his or her won list.

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.

UPDATE 27/07/2010
Seems this seller has a little stock of these fakes as we see a new listing with different pictures.
