Sandisk USB flash drives in ebay auctions from wavesofmybrain1

leave a comment »

As Sandisk do not make this flash drive in either the 128GB capacity advertised in this ebay listing from wavesofmybrain1 or indeed in the 64GB capacity shown in another listing we conclude that seller wavesofmybrain1 made the mistake of buying from one of the fraudulent wholesale outlets supplying fake capacity counterfeits.

Anyone who buys a counterfeit USB flash drive will discover that it corrupts files due to the fact that the real capacity of the drive is never anywhere near the advertised capacity and once the real capacity has been filled files become lost or corrupted.

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.
