Seller riveneuve1937 has provided the evidence that this is a fake 128GB Corsair flash drive in the actual listing!! Amazing, shame that people buying on ebay don’t use their eyes and brains. If they did there would not have been 6 bids on this when we captured this listing. Of course there is always the possiblility that one or more bidders are alterate IDs used by the same seller – but we’ll come to alternate IDs in a minute.

Here’s a test to see if you can use your eyes and brain. Look at this screenshot below from the body of the listing (Item number: 320592138250) – can you see what we see?

Thanks to seller riveneuve1937 kindly providing a capacity chart showing that there is only one 128GB Corsair flash drive, which looks nothing like the one being sold, anyone with two eyes and a brain can easily tell that this is a fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files!!

Now to the matter of multiple IDs – have a look at the pictures provided by riveneuve1937 (left) in this listing and le_mans1939 (right) in another current ebay (Item number: 250698734535) for a fake 128GB Corsair flash drive – again this is visual evidence for those in posession of two eyes and a brain:

We’ll leave you to work it out – of course you could have a look at the feedback for riveneuve1937 to see the other bit of evidence that makes us suspect that riveneuve1937 and le_mans1939 may be one and the same person!

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.
