Fighting flash fraud on Ebay

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

256GB DT310 flash drives in private ebay sales from bohochicgreetings

The buy it now price in this private ebay listing (item number 220720117954) from bohochicgreetings is far too low for these to be anything other than fake capacity counterfeits and anyone who bought a 256GB Kingston DataTraveler 310 flash USB flash drive from bohochicgreetings will find it corrupts files.

The same applies to another buy it now listing from bohochicgreetings (item number 220720118941) and the flash drive just sold at auction a couple of minutes ago (item number 220719393394) for £27.02 – less than the cost of manufacture!

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.
