Seller apiszarshavin sold the model of flash drive shown on the left in the 8GB version with the item location shown as Malaysia. Only one seems to have sold – for the princely sum of 18p with free post and packing.

This ebay member also sold a number of 2GB swivel type drives for 18p – so the seller is down by quite a sum even if (as we strongly suspect) the drives are all fakes.

The seller then moved to buy it now listings for the model on the left in the 32GB with a price of $15 and free P&P – not possible if they were genuine!

We think every single flash drive sold by apiszarshavin will turn out to be a fake that destroys data.

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.
