The 64GB flash drive in this ebay listing from torpedohoolkassel is a notorious fake capactiy flash drive that corrupts files. Never buy this leather and steel type of flash drive on ebay unless it is a present for your worst enemy! There are 3 surefire indicators in this listing that a flash drive is a fake:

  1. The model of flash drive – the leather and steel type always prove to be fakes
  2. The packaging – all flash drives in this packaging have proved to be fake
  3. The shiny capacity sticker – never seen on genuine drives, only ever on fakes

Never buy a flash drive with any of these indicators – you will find it corrupts your files!! The leather and steel type is notorious – sold on ebay for years in every imaginable false capacity. This particular model is a favourite with the fraud gangs in China who manufacture fake flash drives – very easy to program so that it reports whatever capacity they like to the operating system.

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.
