It looks like ebay seller zmq314 has been shopping in fake flash land as he or she has listed not only this 32GB Santa flash drive but a number of other “christmas-y” flash drives with buy it now prices that seem a bit to low for them to be genuine.

We think this seller bought from one of the many fraudulent suppliers in China who sell fake capacity flash memory items and that anyone who buys one will find that their USB flash drive corrupts files after a while.

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.
