Looks like yet another fake 16GB flash drive from China

We think this is yet another listing from one of the well known fraud gangs in China. We expect that flash drives sold by ebay member wsklbiox120 will prove to be fake capacity. 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.

This flash drive from ebay seller electro-passion is undoubtedly fake fake fakity-fake. As usual we strongly advise ebayers to test all flash memory with the free program h2testw.

Update 14/09/09
Seems that ebay seller electro-passion (now de-registered) got just deserts for being a careless profiteer.

We think the source of these fakes was possibly ebay transaction number 140337034332 on August 6th in which electro-passion bought a bulk lot of 20 flash drives (sold as 1GB Kingston) for $66 plus $20 postage from UK seller amadiokpo.

Did electro-passion really think it was possible to get away with selling these (fake) flash drives as 64GB at ten times the price paid for them?? If so the seller didn’t reckon with the frankenflash project!
