If the 32GB flash drives listed by beever1234 are genuine the seller is taking a huge risk by starting the bidding at 1p. If they are genuine and bids do not exceed the wholesale price plus postage, listing fees etc then the seller stands to lose a lot of money. The seller says:

NEVER OPENED !!! OFFICIAL DRIVE THIS IS NOT A CHEAP COPY , GARAUNTEED!! 300% MONEY BACK IF YOU RECIEVE AN UNOFFICIAL OR FAKE ITEM!!

This is a rather extravagant claim – 300%?? Did the seller do any maths at school we wonder? If not, maybe this explains the low start price! We do wonder a little why buyer IDs are being kept private if the seller’s items are genuine – after all buying a flash drive is nothing to be ashamed of. We might understand if the listing was for S&M gear – but flash drives??

As ever we strongly advise ebayers to test all flash memory with the free program h2testw.

Report in to SOSFakeFlash if your testing confirms you have a false capacity device.
