    We recently saw that our eBay id was on your website saying that our USB flash drives are “fake” and “hacked”. We were a little upset and confused by this. We consider ourselves to be honest sellers who will bend over backwards for our buyers.
    We haven’t put a brand name on our USB flash drives (unlike some), we specifically asked for OEM Flash Drives so we were not in breach of any laws. We format each and every drive before sending them out (very time consuming) to make sure they have the right size on them. We found we were having complaints about our 16GB Flash drive, so we no longer sell them, pulling the listing immediately (as you can see from our eBay shop).
    Anyone who has a problem with their flash stick is either instantly sent a replacement or a refund. We even send them a self-addressed envelope so they don’t have to pay for the return of the item. The gentlemen that left a comment on your website (Michael Elliott) about a faulty flash drive was refunded the next day, no quibbles.
    We do really try and make eBay a safe and secure place to shop, and we are proud of what we sell.
    I understand what your site is trying to achieve, and I couldn’t agree more, there are some sellers claiming to sell Kingston, or Sandisk Memory which I know have to be fake for the price they sell them.
    Whether you believe us or not, we do care what people think.

    Yours sincerely

    Just a quick tip: Formatting a drive will not tell you what the true size is. You need to use H2Testw for this, as it is intended to determine a drive’s capacity.

    You can find it, and information about it, here – .
