ebay alert: very dangerous fake flash listing from xdfxcv2010

leave a comment »

The ebay listing above from xdfxcv2010 is one of the most dangerous types of fraudulent listings for fake flash memory items on ebay. ONE flash drive with a true capacity of 128GB costs a whole lot more to MAKE than US $16.74! It would be impossible to SELL ten for this price!!

This listing invites foolish ebayers with no knowledge of flash memory to buy these in order to re-sell and land themselves in all sorts of trouble!! Hopefully ebay will remove this listing before anyone buys!

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: This seller has now been suspended by ebay.
