Seller in China lists 120GB Sony Vaio USB flash drive on ebay

There is no such thing as a 120GB USB flash drive – this flash drive sold by leijun666888 is not made by Sony and is not 120GB – it is a fake that will corrupt users’ files.

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.

Sony do not produce 500GB Microvault USB flash drives – the largest they sell are 16GB. No one else produces USB flash drives of this capacity either. There is such a thing as a 500GB solid state hard drive but it’s not the kind of thing you can put on your lanyard or keyring. Seller 830.patrickd obviously went shopping in fake flash land without researching flash memory first – otherwise the seller would have known these are fakes.

The 16GB Kingston DataTraveler G2 USB flash drive in this listing by mengpu0321 is far too cheap to be genuine. We think all flash memory items from this seller will be fake capacity and will trash users’ data.
As usual 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.

We doubt that these 128GB DT200 USB flash drives are genuine

We think that budgetelectricalstore09 may have purchase these 128GB Kingston DT200 USB flash drives from a fraudulent wholesaler. If this is the case they will be counterfeit and fake capacity – such drives corrupt files. If they are genuine they will have individual serial numbers that can be verified with Kingston.

As usual 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.

Another fraudulent seller of fake flash on ebay by the look of it

This flash drive is the fraudsters’ favourite – easy to program to any fake capacity they think they can get away with. The true capacity of this will be nowhere near the 64GB claimed by seller jingtian168 and once the true capacity is reached users’ files will begin to be lost and corrupted.

As usual 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.

There is no such thin as a 512GB Sony Vaio USB flash drive – this item listed by bean086 is fake fake fakity fake.
