A number of 8GB and 16GB HP flash drives have been sold at auction on ebay by lmc059 and it appears that the seller may have made a loss on about half the listings if the flash drives are genuine. This makes us wonder whether these might be fake capacity counterfeits purchased from a fraudulent wholesale outlet.

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.
