For those of you not familiar with fake flash memory items, but with some intelligence, ebay item number 110501460166 (for which bernie0013 refunded the buyer) provides a clue about what is going on here:

So what do we think of the statement by bernie0013 in ebay listing number 110546159594 in which an “explanation” about these flash drives is given? Well here is the statement – judge for yourself what we think – we have given a visual clue!

“We had these made by a Chinese Manufacturer so we could label them with our company logo. we have quite a few left and we have decided to sell them off.”

For those of you familiar with visual comments the image on the right says it all! 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.
