We have news for UK ebay seller rawlogistics2009. It is simply not possible to buy genuine 16GB USB flash drives at a price that would allow you to sell it on ebay with free P&P. What you are selling here simply has to be fake fake fakity fake. Of course the seller could already know this; the tiny picture makes us wonder…

Anyone who buys one will end up with lost and corrupted files. We strongly suggest that rawlogistics2009 remove these from sale, tests them with h2testw and refunds any poor soul that has been daft enough to buy one if (as we expect) they fail this test.

If you choose not to follow this advice then you are likely to end up with negative feedback and an ebay suspension. 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.
