Sandisk Cruzer 4GB fleur model targeted by counterfeiters?

fleur price
As you can see from this screenshot from the Sandisk site the price for this drive direct from the manufacturer is £17.99. An ebay member drew our attention to the fact that these are being sold on ebay for around £7.00. The profit margins on flash memory are not generally large enough to allow a reseller to make a profit selling flash drives for this much less than the manufacturer so we find these listings suspect.

We call on all sellers to check with Sandisk whether their supplier is authorised – we suspect that these were supplied by fraudulent wholesalers in China. The other thing both sellers and buyers should do is to test all flash memory items wth h2testw
