Fighting flash fraud on Ebay

The authors of this blog want to elimnate flash fraud on Ebay

Obvious fake 128GB flash drives sold in private ebay auctions

The 128GB leather and steel type flash drive shown here is always fake as is any flash drive sold under the Sony Vaio name.

The trademark Vaio is reserved for laptops and is never used by Sony for flash drives. Sony do not sell flash drives of higher capacity than 32GB. These are fakes that will corrupt files.

We think that seller kfzmk may be aware that they are fakes as auctions are private – usually a sign of deliberate fraud when selling flash memory items.

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.
