If you bought a flash drive on ebay from eccoboy1974 we advise you to test it with h2testw as we have a feeling that these are fake capacity flash drives bought from a fraudulent supplier. A lot of ebay sellers buy from fraudulent wholesale outlets in China and we suspect this is the case with this seller.

Often ebay sellers have no idea that they are selling fakes – it doesn’t occur to them that they should test at least a sample of the stock with h2testw before listing on ebay. We suggest that seller eccoboy1974 does so immediately!!

It appears that eccoboy1974 sold 10 of these in a previous ebay listing (Item number: 200513130227) that ended yesterday, so if this is a seller who made an honest mistake he or she will have a bit of sorting out to do in contacting buyers and refunding them in order not to destroy the 100% positive feedback score the seller currently has.

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.
