If the 8GB USB flash drives malcolmpencraig is selling are genuine then why is this seller using a private listing?

This made us wonder if these USB flash drives could be fakes that will corrupt files as this is the usual reason that sellers make flash memory sales private.

We looked at the seller’s history and found the picture on the left used for one sale. This adds to our suspicion that these are file corrupting fakes as all flash drives in this packaging prove to be fake.

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.
