leave a comment »

UK seller gambinnno123 has listed one of the most obvious fake USB flash drives we have seen recently. The listing is on buy it now with buyer information hidden – pretty well a sure-fire sign of fraud. The packaging is very familiar – it was used for many fake drives a while back. If you see packaging like this steer well clear! The vaio trademark is reserved by Sony for laptops. It has never been used for flash drives. These items are 100% fake. Anyone who buys will end up losing their files and we think gambinnno123 knows it! If you have bought USB flash drives on ebay or elswhere on the internet, or are thinking of doing so (whether for personal use or to re-sell) we advise you to download Helen’s guide to fake flash. You can download it from the page Guide to fake flash listed at the top of the right-hand panel. It doesn’t cover everything but will give you some idea of what to look out for. gambino
