It is very likely that all models sold by powerangollee are fake capacity. If you bought a flash drive from powerangolee you should test it immediately with h2testw – you can download this program free from the testing section of this blog. If it fails the test please email your test results to sosfakeflash@gmail.com. You should also open a paypal dispute to claim a refund (follow the advice on the sosfakeflash blog) and report the item using the link at the bottom of the item listing.
An ebayer who bought this item has successfully reprogrammed it to be an innocent 4GB flash drive. You will find his guide to doing this in the fix fake flash category.
Another model of Fake Flash sold by powerangolee was reported to sosfakeflash
