robo247The buy it now price on these 16GB Sandisk Cruzer flash drives listed by robo247 was a bit too low for them to be genuine.

This leads us to think that the seller bought these from one of the many fraudulent wholesalers supplying counterfeits.

Fakes trash users’ files. You can’t tell a fake by looking at the drive properties as fakes fool the operating system. The seller may have no idea that these are likely to be counterfeits.

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.
