It looks as though the USB flash drives being sold in this ebay listing (item number 120656807687) by onestopmagicbox are being delivered from outside the UK. It seems that this seller has entered into a drop-shipping arrangement with a supplier (probably in China) so they are delivered to the buyer straight from the original supplier. This means that onestopmagicbox has no opportunity to check that what is being sold is genuine – and we don’t think it is. This model of USB flash drive is usually fake capacity and corrupts files and we think these will be the same.

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.
