We think daily-liquidator will prove to be yet another fraudulent seller from China selling fake capacity USB flash drives that corrupt files. This seller is using private sales on ebay – private sales are generally a sure fire sign that you will get a fake flash drive! Never buy flash memory from a seller who keeps your ID private.

Another ebay listing for Sony Vaio flash drives

with 5 comments

This fake flash drive has been listed on ebay Australia by seller diamond738hsv. There is no such thing as 64GB Sony Vaio flash drives. The Vaio name is only used for laptops and Sony to not sell flash drives of capacities over 32GB.

This seller obviously didn’t do his or her research before buying these from a fraudulent supplier and may well be unaware that these USB flash drives are fakes that corrupt files.

128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 on ebay too cheap to be genuine

leave a comment »

This 128GB Kingston DataTraveler USB flash drive listed by slam714 on ebay USA is too cheap to be genuine. It must be a fake purchase by the seller from one of the many fraudulent wholesale outlets supplying counterfeit and fake capacity flash memory items. This USB flash drive corrupts data, as do all counterfeits. The seller may have no idea that these are fakes.
