Fighting flash fraud on Ebay

The authors of this blog want to elimnate flash fraud on Ebay

counterfeit 128GB Corsair flash drive from mr-h-89 on ebay

It seems that top rated ebay seller mr-h-89 has made the mistake of buying flash memory items from one of the fraudulent suppliers in China selling fake capacity and counterfeit items that corrupt files. A genuine 128GB Corsair flash drive does not look like the one pictured in this listing – it is the wrong model so it is obviously a Chinese counterfeit. As this flash drive is fake it is very likely that other flash memory items listed by mr-h-89 came from the same supplier and will also be fake.

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.
