This 64GB USB flash drive listed on ebay UK by xiayujun1025 is fake fake fakity fake. This sneaky little fraudster (registered in China) lists the item location as london, United Kingdom – an attempt to pull the wool over the eyes of careless ebayers who don’t check seller location!

We consider this to be blackmail! The seller might as well have said:
