Seller sales-producer registered with ebay Hong Kong on 15th May 2009. The seller offered many of the item below and sold them at what must have been a loss by the time fees, post and packing are taken into account:

These account for the majority of sales to date and the first feedback comment the seller received for these was on 24/06/09. The seller sold his first flash drive on the 23/06/09 – at present the seller is only listing one 4GB model shown below:

At the time of writing three of these have been sold and a further 30 were listed. We do not know yet whether these are genuine or fake capacity. As this model of flash drive is the most common fake capacity drive sold on ebay (sometimes in fake capacities up to a whopping 64GB) we wonder if we happened across the start of a new fraud operation.

As usual 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.
