As ebay seller 61656165 recently bought a guide about fake flash memory from another ebayer there is absolutely no excuse for this listing (ebay item number 320563323267) for a fake capacity and counterfeit flash drive. This seller must know this as he or she has the information. This simply has to be a case of deliberate fraud.

There is no such thing as a genuine Sony Vaio flash drive of any capacity whatsoever, they were invented by fraudsters in China. We suspect that this may not be the first time that this ebay member has listed fake capacity flash drives.

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.

UPDATE 27/07/2010
This seller is now offering the 128GB Kingston DataTraveler 200 flash drive for US $35.00 with shipping cost of US $12.00. Far too low for them to be genuine so certain to be a fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files.
