Are this UK ebayer’s USB flash drives genuine or counterfeit?

UK ebay member jonathan2153 has sold a few Sandisk and Kingston flash drives at auction. They fetched rather low prices and we doubt if the seller made anything on the sales if they are genuine.

We are therefore surprised to see that this seller is still offering them in auctions with low start prices. It makes us wonder if they could be counterfeits purchased from a fraudulent supplier. If the flash drives are counterfeit they will corrupt files.

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.
