The flash supposedly 256GB USB flash drive drive sold on October 17th by bnaacmick60 in the ebay listing above is a fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files – so fare bnaacmick60 has sold three of these obvious fakes: ebay item numbers 290487419091, 290488782175 and 290487417746 and has a current listing for another one (ebay item number 290489739078).

The seller also has a listing for the notorious leather and steel model of flash drive (ebay item number 290488461652) – this type of USB flash drive always corrupts files.

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.
