These flash drives listed on ebay by chenmeifang82040788 (a recently-registered ID in China) are too cheap for the seller to break even if they were genuine. We therefore conclude that these are the usual fake capacity drives that have been flooding ebay from China. The fact that buyer IDs makes these look even more suspect than they would otherwise!

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.
