Canadian seller david2008y seems to have bought flash drives from one of the many fraudulent wholesalers in the orient who sell fake capacity and counterfeit memory items.

We think the flash drives being sold by this ebay member will prove to be fake capacity (probably 2GB flash drives programmed to appear to be 16GB when you look at the properties) – the seller may be entirely unaware that these are likely to be fake capacity.

Please folks – if you plan to sell flash memory (USB flash drives/pens, memory cards/sticks or MP players) on ebay do your research first! You cannot buy genuine 16GB items at prices which allow you to sell at this price!! You will be selling fakes which eventually cause your buyers to find their files are lost/corrupted.

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.
