We were a little surprised to come across this listing by goldfamilie.3 on ebay Germany. The swivel type flash drives listed by this seller look as though they could be genuine. We are very surprised to see them listed at auction with a start price of 1 euro. The seller is taking a risk here if they are genuine as he or she could well make a loss, though so far it does look as though the seller could be at least breaking even.

We’d be interested to hear from any buyers who have tested these with h2testw – are they genuine?

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 your fake if testing confirms you have purchased fake capacity flash memory on ebay.
