The description says:
You are Bidding on a BRAND NEW OEM PNY 256GB Turbo Flash Drive
Perhaps the seller meant to post them as auction items, but accidentally posted them as Buy it Now items.

It's either a hacked account or a scammer selling modified 8 gig drives that show more available space.

Come on.

Seems like the issue. Their sales history suggests they only usually sell 1 of every item.

In August last year this was posted on rfd for $4.86, and was also too good to be true

Turned out to be a scam, but my purchase was refunded, so no damage done, just time wasted. Not the same seller though (who has been delisted).

The chance of it being fake is pretty high, but the risk to your wallet is pretty low.

Pulled the trigger, thanks OP, we will see what happens.
