Having had positive feedback from the victim of the listing above (and another that ended the same day) seller gizmo-sc listed a third of these obvious fake 32GB USB flash drives. In the listing it states:

Dies ist eine Privatauktion,deshalb gibt es keine Garantie und Rücknahme!!!

– oh right then, so no gaurantee and return policy! Why does this not surprise us one little bit?

UPDATE 10/11/09
Seller gizmo-sc has listed a few more of these fakes now!

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.
