Australian ebay seller lists massive fake flash drive for sale

leave a comment »

cantareballare We previously posted suspicions that Kingston flash drives from seller cantareballare could be counterfeit. This seller has now listed a very obvious fake at a massive 500GB capacity!

There is no such thing as a 500GB Sony Micro Vault USB flash drive! In fact there is no such thing as a 500GB USB flash drive period. Nobody makes flash drives in this capacity and the highest capacity genuine Sony is 16GB.

This fake flash drive will trash users’ files. The properties of the drive will display as 500 GB but this is nothing like the truth. The real capacity is tiny but the drive is programmed to fool the operating system.

We advise everyone to test all flash memory with the free program h2testw.

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