Seller fastblue12 seems to have realised there is something not quite right about these supposedly 128GB USB flash drives purchased from a fraudulent supplier. The leather and steel model of flash drive is notorious – always fake capacity and corrupts files.

Instead of doing the right thing (testing them with h2testw and pursuing the fraudster they were purchased from) fastblue12 has decided to block out the brand name with a sticker (see picture) and auction them in job lots on ebay. Here is what the seller says about these:

I BOUGHT THIS LOT OF FLASH PEN DRIVE FROM WAREHOUSE WHOLESALE ONLINE
I AM UNABLE TO TEST THEM BUT THEY MAY BE ” FAKE ”
ALL OF THEM HAS A COVER LEATHER ( SEE PICTURE ) AND LABELED WITH A VERY KNOWN BRAND NAME COMPANY.
” FOR PARTS OR REPAIR ”
I WILL NOT BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ANYTHING IF YOU BUY IT
I DO NOT WARRANTY !!!!!!!!!!!! NOT REFUND !!!!!!!!!!
NOT REFUND !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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.
