China-based ebay seller rtechrocks685625 has sold a number of flash drive models – all supposedly 16GB. Three of the models from this seller are shown above. They were sold at prices which make us suspect that these are fake capacity items. This seller is a bit more careful than most – spacing flash drives out among a range of other items. This lessens the likelihood of negative feedback reaching a percentage that will cause ebay to suspend the seller. The drive on the far left is one of the favourites with fraudsters – easy to program to whatever fake size the like but usually only really 2GB. 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.
