ebayer 666cube fails to sell notorious 128GB leather flash drives

Seller 666cube failed to get any bids for the notorious 128GB leather and steel type flash drives – or were they 32GB? the seller seemed a bit confused in listing number 300455446537. Maybe ebayers are finally getting wise to the fact that these USB flash drives are always fake capacity, which corrupts files.

Undeterred 666cube now has the listing below (number 300455775262) with the same picture, but the flash drives have now been transformed from 128GB (shown on the shiny sticker) or 32GB (the other capacity given in the previous listing) into 4GB. Well, that’s probably a bit closer – but we suspect the real capacity will be half that or less. Our thanks to Axel for drawing our attention to this seller.

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.
