fake Sony Vaio flash drive in private ebay auction by semicirclerer

leave a comment »

This ebay listing by semicirclerer displays several warning signs of fake flash fraud you should look out for:

  • Use of a private listing to hide what has been sold.
  • Hong Kong based seller – one of the main conduits for fakes.
  • An obvious fake flash drive – all Sony Vaio drives are fakes manufactured by fraudsters in China.

The USB flash drive in this listing is fake capacity and corrupts 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.
