    Hi, I bought 10pcs of "64GB Sandisk Ultra microSDXC UHS-I Card with Adapter" from a seller on Ebay and it turns out to be fake. I tried running a test using this tool one of the cards and the test give me this result:

    The media is likely to be defective.
    6.3 GByte OK (13233975 sectors)
    56.1 GByte DATA LOST (117772489 sectors)
    Details:0 KByte overwritten (0 sectors)
    0 KByte slightly changed (< 8 bit/sector, 0 sectors)
    56.1 GByte corrupted (117772489 sectors)
    0 KByte aliased memory (0 sectors)
    First error at offset: 0x0000000193de6e00
    Expected: 0x0000000193de6e00
    Found: 0xb484d7b4583f8688
    H2testw version 1.3
    Writing speed: 8.82 MByte/s
    Reading speed: 14.8 MByte/s
    H2testw v1.4

    So it seems only 6.3GB is the reall capacity of the card so it is 100% fake. But it takes more than 2 hours to test 1 single 64GB microsd card using this tool. Can you suggest any tool that I can use and take a screenshot from to send to Ebay as a proof? I would like to know your suggestions, and If anyone has the similar experience please tell me what's the best proof that I can send to Ebay so I can get a full refund.

    Here's a brief story about what happen with me and the seller:

    So I file a return on the seller once I saw(upon seeing the packaging, It already gave me a faint hint that its fake since the printing is a little bit low quality. I plugged in the micro sd card on my computer and It was read properly, but when i check it's properties, format is already FAT32 which it shouldnt be. I do the test and all and then it even makes my doubt clear that its fake. So the seller told me to either they will send a partial refund and I can have the items or send the items to them to get the full refund. But according to Ebay's Money Back Guarantee, If the buyer is sure that the item is a counterfeit, the buyer is not obliged to send it back to the seller, they will just cooperate with Ebay for the proper disposal of the products. That's one thing, and also I cannot send it back to them if I want to since I live in the UAE and the only reason I get US products is by using Aramex's ShopandShip service. So sending it back to them will cost more than the product itself. I kept on trying to say this to the seller but I think the seller doesnt want to read my explanation and just want to know If I will return the items or not. So I file a complain on Ebay, which they return a reply and is now asking for a proof.

    Thanks for the help in advance.

    I know, it's so stupid of me to fall into one of these fake listings. Lesson learned.

    my dad works for nintendo.
    send pictures of the packaging... and the card itself
    and the test result...
    since you already wrote the test data, you should only need to use the verify button which is quicker...

    Thanks for the help guys, I already received the refund. Though Ebay still asks me to send it back to the seller, pfff. The shipping costs is $30. I didn;t get everything(coz of the shipping fee), but atleast I managed to get some of it.

    I paid a similar, slightly lower price for a Samsung EVO too. Not sure if it is an EVO+, but it IS one of those more recent EVOs with the slightly lighter orange. I ordered from Ebay UK, it arrived in a bit more than a week, first thing I did was test it with H2Testw, capacity is the correct one.

    I wouldn't return it. They would just send it out to another victim again.

    Delete the partition and create a new one thats 6.2gb so it's still usable

    if they sold you a fake card, (and they very likely aware about selling counterfeit stuff)

    i can seee that the seller has the right of getting the product back to refund you.. it's fair!
    but in my opinion it is also fair that it's them that pay for the shipping to get the card back, not at your cost...

    Frankly, every time I bought a counterfeit thing off ebay (like some supposedly OEM glass back for the Nexus 4 ended up being plastic and lacking the coil for wireless charging, not to mention NFC stopped working), I managed to get a refund and keep the part, after leaving a negative review, they messaged me "Here's a refund, please consider changing the rating", and I did consider, ultimately deciding not to.

    Probably the normal EVO. The EVO+ has a slightly darker orange colour

    The dirtbag Chinese have no scruples with their fake garbage, but PayPal has your gullible ass covered. I would bet they refund you instantly whence you complain. I've been there. Don't wait, just file the claim.
