The picture below shows a fake USB flash drive listed by UK seller  sue-hawk.  This seller was warned the item is fake but seems either not to have understood the significance of the warning or is a deliberate fraudster. At the moment we do not know which for sure. Time will tell. We are inclined to think that this ebayer has simply acted foolishly. Suffice it to say that this flash drive  is not (as advertised by the seller) a 64GB drive and the buyer will lose their files after a while if  he or she uses it.


There seem to be a large number of UK sellers who have recently bought fake flash drives to re-sell on Ebay. If you are a seller who has been warned by another ebayer that your item is fake – pay attention!!

Selling such items is a criminal offence and you could land in prision if  you continue with the sale once you have been warned that the item is fake.  There is no excuse.  If you have been told an item is a fake you should remove it from sale immediately.
