We suspect that the 64GB DataTraveler 150 flash drives being sold by ahmredwan will prove to be counterfeit and fake capacity. An ebay member tried to warn the seller but it seems the seller paid no heed. This type of drive should have an individual serial number which can be used to verify the drive if it is genuine. Sellers should check that drives are genuine before selling them otherwise they risk negative feedback, suspension of their ebay account and possible prosecution from fraud.

Every time you sell an item on ebay you are agreeing to take full responsibility for the item you sell. If you sell a fake it is no good burbling about your supplier – it is your responsibility as a seller to ensure your items are genuine. 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.
