We think it is likely that the 16GB USB flash drives recently listed by sky-brother will prove to be fake capacity – a danger to user’s data. This seller has a huge feedback score but a very high proportion is for packs of stylus for Nintendo sold for a few pennies (and therefore at a loss) – this is very familiar. When we see feedback like this and then a seller suddenly lists USB flash drives our experience is that they turn out to be fakes.

As ever, we strongly advise ebayers to test all flash memory (whether USB flash drive, memory card or MP player) with the free program h2testw.

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