I absolutely second this. eBay is great for some things but memory cards and flash drives you should stay away from on there.
Good advice Also if buying on Amazon make sure it's 'sold by Amazon' and not 'fulfilled by Amazon' , that's another way fakes get through. Although i've read sometimes even Amazon get fake stock by accident!! Very rare though
