Refined fake 16GB Sony flash drive sold on ebay by leifengle

with one comment

leifenglescrn This refined fake from leifengle shows the Vaio trademark name on the reverse side – a sure fire sign that this flash drive was not made by Sony (the Vaio name is reserved for laptops) and will cause data loss. This is because such drives show a fake capacity to the operating system and once users get to the limit of the real capacity of the drive (usually no more than 2GB at most) all files are lost or corrupted.

UPDATE 04/06/09
Fake flash seller leifengle has been suspended by ebay and listings removed. If you bought a flash drive from this seller test it immediately with h2testw.

Report in to SOSFakeFlash if your testing confirms you have a false capacity device (we can pretty well gaurentee it will) then get your refund claim into paypal quick!
