Beware 128GB flash drives on ebay from seller hatakekakashi2010

As well as this notorious leather and steel model of USB flash drive (always fake capacity and corrupts files) seller hatakekakashi2010 has listings for 128GB Sony Vaio flash drives (something that simply does not exist except as a fake capacity flash drive that corrupts files) – anyone who buys a flash drive from hatakekakashi2010 will find it corrupts their files.

As hatakekakashi2010 is registered in Malaysia, but gives the item location as Japan, we think this looks like a case of deliberate fraud on ebay rather than an unwitting ebayer who bought from a fraudulent supplier.

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.
