UK ebay seller memoryking_com seems to be bidding on fake flash from fraudsters in China and re-selling it at a higher price to other ebayers. The fact that buyer IDs are private suggests that this seller may be aware the flash drive shown here is fake capacity. 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.

UPDATE 21 August
Seems like (as well as the one bought on ebay that was re-sold) the seller has been shopping in fake flash land and come back with a bulk lot of the fraudsters’ favourite flash drive (same model) which are now being sold on buy it now at £17.50 with free P&P.
