Seller hababou1275, registered on ebay France, has sold many of these 32GB memory sticks in private auctions on ebay. If they were genuine the seller would be hugely out of pocket as he or she would have made a loss on almost every sale.

As the seller is still listing in private auctions with a low start price we can only conclude that these are fake capacity items purchase from a fraudulent wholesaler. After all – would you keep selling things if you were losing money on every single sale? No? We don’t think hababou1275 would either – therefore they must have been purchased at a price so low that it is impossible for them to be 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.
