gremlin2sHong Kong Seller philico-action has a range of 16GB flash drives on buy it now for 99p with £10.99 post and packing. You cannot buy genuine 16GB flash drives for £11.98 including postage.

Loading the postage costs like this is an abuse of ebay – also a way of trying to wriggle out of fully refunding buyers when the seller gets caught selling fake capacity flash memory.

We advise everyone who buys flash memory items to test them with the free program h2testw irrespective of where they were purchased – otherwise you run the risk of data loss and corruption.

Report in to SOSFakeFlash if your testing confirms you have purchased a false capacity device on ebay.
