Has seller shaven_haven been buying counterfeit (and therefore fake capacity) flash memory items from other ebay sellers and re-selling them? The seller certainly doesn’t seem to be buying flash memory items wholesale. All flash memory items such as this 32GB Kingston DataTraveler USB flash drive, other flash drives and memory cards sold before seem to be single items.

We are curious about this seller’s location. We don’t remember seeing a city, town or village anywhere in the UK called Here & There! – perhaps someone would like to enlighten us?? Our suspicions about this seller are further aroused by the use of private auctions and the low start prices.

Without spending the time to investigate shaven_haven thouroughly we cannot say for sure where the seller got these flash memory items but we are fairly certain they are counterfeits which will cause file corruption and data loss for anyone using them.

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.
