Are the 16GB Kingston flash drives listed by elbello_123 and abi_green a bargain or are they counterfeit? If they are counterfeit they will be fake capacity and cause data loss and corruption for users.

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.

  1. I have had a look at the listings for both sellers and have come to the conclusion they are both likely to be closely connected somehow.

    I could be wrong, but, if you look at the top seller advertising the drive for £18.99 buy it now, then go further down the listing, you will see a bit about offers over £19.00 highly likely to be accepted.
    Why would anyone offer over £19.00 for a buy it now of £18.99?

    The listing by the second seller above has an option to make an offer or buy it now for £19.90. Hence my suspicion.

    Both sellers are selling the same drives, using the same description, both offering free 2nd class P&P.

    It all seems a bit too fishy for my liking and I would not buy from either seller as a result.
