snoopyfaint2sSnoopy fainted clean away again when he spotted a buy it now listing from seller makefs offering no less than 5 – that’s right FIVE 16GB flash drives for £8.99 with free P&P. That’s only £1.80 each! You can’t normally buy a 1GB drive for £1.80 let alone a 16GB – we dread to think what buyers will receive from this seller. An empty envelope? Flash drives that will fail instantly?

We think that makefs is an alternate ID for a fraudster who was recently de-registerd by ebay for selling fake Kingston. The seller seems to simply have switched ID and brand of fake! We advise everyone to test all flash memory with the free program h2testw.

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