8GB Sandisk USB flash drive on ebay USA seems a tad too cheap

with 2 comments

This 8GB Sandisk USB flash drive listed on ebay USA by 3jenterprise seems a tad too cheap for this particular model which makes us suspect they may be counterfeits purchased from a fraudulent supplier.

We advise ebay sellers to beware of buying bargain price brand name flash memory from wholesale outlets without checking that that the supplier is authorised by the company whose name it bears. In fact no one with any sense should buy flash memory to resell at all without fully researching the true cost of such items and the profit margin you can expect.

You may be surprised to learn how low profit margins really are and how difficult it is to sell genuine flash memory items on ebay, except at a loss!!

If you do buy flash memory to resell ALWAYS TEST WITH H2TESTW

We advise everyone who buys flash memory items to test them with the free program h2testw irrespective of where they were purchased – otherwise you run the risk of data loss and corruption.

Report in to SOSFakeFlash if testing confirms you have purchased fake capacity flash memory on ebay.
