16GB USB flash drive on ebay UK seems suspiciously cheap to us

These 16GB USB flash drives on ebay seem a bit too cheap to us. We can’t see how seller areema_design (based in Northern Ireland) can possibly make a profit at this price if they are genuine. This makes us wonder if areema_design bought them from one of the many fraudulent wholesale outlets. If the seller did buy from a fraudulent supplier then the flash drive will be fake capacity which corrupts 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.
