Fighting flash fraud on Ebay

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

128GB flash drive in ebay auction from dobdaad is notorious fake

The leather and steel type flash drive in this ebay auction from dobdaad (item number 190492383229) has absolutely nothing to do with Sony. It also does not have a real capacity of 128GB (though fraudulent programming fools the operating system into reporting this capacity) – once the real capacity is full this USB flash drive corrupts files. Experience of these fake capacity flash drives suggests that this will probabably happen once just under 4GB has been saved to it.

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.
