The 32GB USB flash drive pictured in this ebay listing from vanandpat123 is certain to be fake capacity and a fake capacity USB flash drive corrupts files. Any flash drive in this packaging that was tested by our team turned out to be a fake manufactured by fraudsters in China. These are supplied by fraudulent wholesalers to the unwary who often don’t realise that there is such a thing as fake flash memory. This ebayer obviously bought from such a supplier. You are advised never to buy any flash drive in this packaging.

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.
