Fighting flash fraud on Ebay

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

c.i.vatfreepcs lists 64GB Corsair flash drives in private one day ebay auctions

We doubt that the 64GB Corsair flash drives being sold in this ebay listing (item number 110630237287) and other private one day auctions by c.i.vatfreepcs will prove to be genuine, it seems more likely that they will be fake capacity counterfeits. In the unlikely event that they are genuine the seller stands to make a big loss on sales by using short auctions with a low start price. If they are counterfeits then anyone buying one of these USB flash drives will find it corrupts their 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.
