leave a comment »

The leather and steel type of flash drive in this ebay listing from cizlpcng29 is notorious for being fake capacity and corrupting files. The item location given in the listing (Brooklyn, New York, USA) is as fake as the flash drive – the flash drives are no doubt in the same location as the seller, which is (surprise, surprise) China – home of fake flash memory which trashes users’ data.

Anyone who bought one of these will have chucked their money and their valuable files down the toilet if they fall for the fact that the operating system reports the capacity as 32GB and leave this fraudster positive feedback. By the time that the file loss and corruption starts it is likely to be far to late to claim a refund.

However, those who test them with h2testw immediately they arrive stand some chance of getting their money back through paypal and can do other ebayers a favour if (or rather when) the flash drive fails this test by leaving a negative to warn others.

Report your fake if testing confirms you have purchased fake capacity flash memory on ebay.
