This ebay listing for 16GB Cruzer Micro flash drives looks suspect

Two things make us suspect that the flash drive listed here is probably counterfeit and fake capacity. Firstly the buy it now price is too cheap for the seller to make any profit if it is genuine – in fact we think the seller would make a loss. Secondly keeping buyer IDs private is normally a sign of fraud when items like USB flash drives are being sold. 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.
