The Sony Micro Vault brand name for usb flash drives is a target for fraudsters and scammers. Selling false capacity usb flash drives under this brand name, consumers and resellers are being stung! Many who purchase these drives are losing data! eBay sellers are purchasing these dangerous items from internet sites in China and Hong Kong. Some are victims who have not bothered to do their homework in researching the product they are selling. Others know exactly what they are doing and are reaping Hugh profits.

Recently these fakes have been showing up for sale locally on eBay in the UK, Europe and also North America. FlashChipTutor has identified these usb flash drives and has presented them for all to see!

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.
