Fighting flash fraud on Ebay

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

Generic 256GB USB flash drives from ebay seller relaptop

We suspect that the 256GB USB flash drives in this ebay listing from relaptop will turn out to have a capacity a good deal less than the advertised 256GB. No doubt they will be programmed to report 256GB to the operating system, but you can’t rely on what the operating system shows!

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.
