Seller luck088 seems to be yet another Chinese seller with a beam-me-up for the almost instantanious delivery of goods. The seller’s feedback indicates that he was able to deliver the first item “sold” to the United States so fast that the “buyer” was able to leave feedback the same day!

However, a UK ebayer who bought a 16GB flash drive from this seller on 11th March did not get it instantaneously. The seller’s picture of the drive is shown above right. It arrived on the 20th March. Unlike most of the “16GB” DataTraveller drives coming out of China this one (buyer’s pictures below) was red colour – though the red plastic appears to be a slightly brighter colour than the genuine article and the label is not right. This drive had no useable capacity at all as it was completely unformatted. We note the seller withdrew these from sale – so it seems they realised their mistake after dispatching the drive.
