This ebay listing for a 16GB USB flash drive looks a bit dodgy

We have doubts about this USB flash drive being auctioned on ebay by john2010-john. The picture is too small for us to see the item clearly but we have a feeling that this is yet another USB flash drive that will be fake capacity, which corrupts files. A previous one (ebay item number 260594278722) sold for £14.51 on 30th April so if the are in fact genuine then john2010-john probably made a loss on the sale.

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.
