This 32GB Flash drive on ebay UK is too cheap to be genuine

with one comment


We wouldn’t want to buy this flash drive from seller iwanttobuy_2007 – it is too cheap to be a real 32GB flash drive. We expect the real capacity will be very much less than 32GB. 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.

    All from Glasgow, same fake Sony drives, same Kingston 64gb DT150, etc.

    A careful look over all the feedback reveals dealings between the three ID’s. There is a possibility of auction “fixing” in one seller using multiple ID’s to push up prices.

    I’m not sure, but I think this would not be appropriate on ebay.

    There is definitely something crooked going on here.

    If you have bought a drive from any of the above ID’s, it would be extremely useful if you could get in touch with further details on them.
