Seller trumphotel says in this ebay listing:

There are so many FAKE USB FLASH DRIVES on eBay. However, this one is tested by “h2testw” and proved to be a true 64GB flash drive. I did store 64GB–actually 60.4GB–of data on this devise. I am selling it because I need more capacity and have already purchased larger flash drive.

We don’t think there are many people who need a higher capacity flash drive than 64GB – either this person has very unusual computing habits or this is a load of old cods! The seller says the same in an auction for a used 32GB Sandisk flash drive.

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.
