Flash drives sold by funkyguard are too cheap to be genuine 16GB drives – you cannot buy genuine 16GB for £10. The fact that the seller has a start price of 1p and charges £9.99 for postage is a way of evading ebay fees – a tactic often adopted by fraudsters.

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.
