We think that ebay seller straughan.123 is being somewhat less than honest in this listing for a 16GB USB flash drive. The seller says:

Unwanted Birthday Present – 16GB Generic Flash Disk USB 2.0 Device (with swivel cap).
I have purchased an external hard drive, so I do not require a 16GB Mass Storage Device.
File System of device is FAT32, so the device can be used on all computers.
This product will be posted from the U.K. & not Asia as shown on most storage devices for sale on Ebay.
Free Postage:-)
Happy Bidding, Pick up a bargain!

Oh yes? Then why does feedback show that an identical looking 16GB flash drive was purchased on ebay from areema_design? And feedback from buyers suggests that the USB flash drives from areema_design are likely to be fakes.

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.
