test memory cards bought on ebay from svdfghf immediately!

If you bought a memory card on ebay from seller svdfghf you are advised to test them immediately with thefree program h2testw – otherwise you run the risk of data loss and corruption.

This seller is no longer registered on ebay – the account has been suspended and the seller’s listings have been removed. This is presumably because ebay realised this seller was fraudulent. The seller gave item location as Southampton, UK but the seller was actually in China.

USB flash drives on ebay from individual221 sure to be fakes

As seller individual221 is registered in Mexico but the USB flash drives being auctioned on ebay by this seller have very low start prices and are being sent from Hong Kong we conclude that this seller has foolishly entered into a drop-shipping arrangement with a fraudulent supplier. If we are right – and we are pretty certain we are – any USB flash drive purchase from this seller is fake capacity and corrupts 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.

flash drive, memory card or MP3 player not working

Many thousands of people will have receive a memory card, USB flash drive or MP player as a Christmas present. A lot of them (especially if your well-meaning friend or relative purchased on ebay!) will turn out to be fakes. A fake flash memory item cannot save the amount of data advertised – few can really save as much as 4GB – most can’t save more than 2GB.

If you have a problem with accessing files on the USB flash drive, memory card or MP player you got in your Christmas stocking it is likely that you got a fake. There is a very handy little program called h2testw you can use to check flash memory – we suggest you use it!!
