Fake 32GB Sony USB flash drive listed on ebay by UK seller

sabiastyles786 It seems that UK seller sabiastyles786 has been shopping in fakeflash land and come back with some fake sony drives. These were not made by Sony and do not have 32GB capacity. They are fake capacity flash drives that will cause data to become lost or corrupt.

The seller’s description does not match the picture – in the listing sabiastyles786 says:

The USB connector is safely housed inside the sleek case, so you don’t have to worry about losing a cap.

Ahem – not if the drive looks anything like the one in the picture! We have seen this wording in other listings for fake Sony from ebayers registered in the UK. This makes us wonder if this new ID belongs to someone who previously tried to dump fakes on ebayers using a different ID – this sort of thing is all too common!

As ever we strongly advise ebayers to test all flash memory with the free program h2testw.

Report in to SOSFakeFlash if your testing confirms you have a false capacity device.
