Fighting flash fraud on Ebay

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

64GB USB flash drives from shookman4 will corrupt users’ files

The leather and steel type of flash drive in this ebay listing (item number 110634584845) from shookman4 is a very familiar item – as is the style of the listing. Could this mark the return of the singjapan gang to ebay with their favourite model of fake capacity flash drive? Looks rather like it. Anyone who buys this leather and steel model of USB flash drive at a capacity over 4GB is sure to find that it corrupts their files.

The same applies to the 32GB ones being sold by babu-duhu, another Singapore seller:

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.

  1. I have thrown my 32gb Thumb Stick Leather away upon receipt purchased through Ebay, fortunately Ebay was kind enough to refund me my money.
    I did mention to Ebay that this should not have been on their site in the first place.
    Look out for ‘individual21’ and ‘headea***’ and any ‘individual***’ selling memory sticks on Ebay.
    I did not want to take the chance and find corrupted files..
    Thanks for the warning….John
