16GB Sandisk flash drive in ebay auction with 99p start price
If this 16GB Sandisk USB flash drive is genuine then UK seller andyoni1 risks making quite a loss on the sale. Most people don’t like losing money when they sell new items on ebay. We are a bit puzzled about other listings from the same seller – an 8GB Sandisk with a low start price, an 8GB Lexar with low start price and a buy it now listing (now ended) for 4GB Lexar flash drives.
These Lexar flash drives sold by andyoni1 in a buy it now listing for £5.99 with free P&P seem remarkably cheap.
This makes us think they may be fakes purchased from one of the many fraudulent wholesalers in the far east. Time will tell whether they are genuine or not.
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.
