The 16GB flash drives in this ebay listing from e-sentialsltd seem a little too cheap to us which makes us wonder if this is yet another ebay seller who bought fake capacity flash drives from a fraudulent supplier. There are a lot of fraudulent wholesale outlets in China selling fake capacity flash memory that corrupts files and a lot of ebay sellers make the mistake of buying from these fraudulent suppliers.

This seller also has a listing for suspect 32GB flash drives – we have come across a number of fakes in the packaging shown and the flash drive seems to have one of the little shiny capacity stickers we have only ever seen on 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.
