If you bought a Sony Pro Duo memory card on ebay from greengift1970 you should test it immediately with h2testw – we are certain they are fakes. Why? This ebayer also sold this obvious counterfeit and fake capacity 128GB Kingston USB flash drive on the 4th of May:

The model of Kingston flash drive shown in this listing is not made in 128GB capacity. It is a counterfeit and fake capacity flash drive manufactured by fraudsters in China. It would appear that greengift1970 fell into the trap of buying from one of the many fraudulent wholesale outlets in China.

We advise everyone who buys flash memory items (whether with a view to re-selling or as an end user) to test them with the free program h2testw irrespective of where they were purchased – otherwise you run the risk of data loss and corruption.

If you are a seller it is especially important as selling fakes can destroy a reputation that may have taken a long time to build in a matter of days!

Report your fake if testing confirms you have purchased fake capacity flash memory on ebay.
