Is seller making a loss on 4GB Sandisk USB flash drives sold on ebay?

If the Sandisk flash drives sold on ebay by suffke are genuine it would seem that this ebayer is likely to be making a loss. We would be surprised if they are genuine though as suffke is continuing to auction them and people don’t usually choose to continue making a loss on ebay. This makes us wonder whether they might be counterfeits purchased from a fraudulent supplier. If so then this USB flash drive is fake capacity and corrupts files.

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.
