The authors of this blog want to elimnate flash fraud on Ebay

Test flash memory purchased on ebay from usa_etrade with h2testw

leave a comment »

Seller usa_etrade previously auctioned a number of 16GB Kingston DataTraveler G2 flash drives on ebay and must have made a loss if they were genuine. This has not deterred the seller from listing this 64GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 with a 99p start. This makes us suspect that the flash drives sold by usa_etrade could be fake capacity counterfeits purchased from a fraudulent supplier.

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.
