fake 128GB Sony Vaio flash drives sold on ebay by 2010fjkpkl1201

leave a comment »

Seller 2010fjkpkl1201 is yet another ebay fake flash fraudster. This seller offers a flash drive invented by by fraudsters in China – the Sony Vaio. Sony do not use the Vaio name for flash drives, only for laptops/notebooks. Any flash drive you see associated with the Sony Vaio name is a fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files.

The flash drives in this listing supposedly have a whopping 128GB capacity – a tiny 128 megabytes is a lot more likely! We wonder how daft ebayers are that they think they can buy a 128GB flash drive from China on ebay for EUR 13.88 when an 8GB flash drive would cost them this much anywhere else!

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.

The USB flash drive in this ebay auction from dm01279 is certain to be fake capacity, which corrupts files. We have never yet come across a genuine flash drive in this packaging, every single one that we (and others who write about fake flash) tested was fake.

Is Sony Vaio leather and metal flash drive sold on ebay fake?

leave a comment »

We have noticed that people have been searching the Internet for the answer to the question:

Is Sony Vaio leather and metal/steel flash drive fake?

The answer is a resounding yes!! The leather and metal or leather and steel model is notorious for being fake capacity and corrupting files anyway and there is no such thing as a genuine Sony Vaio flash drive! They were invented by fraudsters in China!! So if you see a leather and metal / leather and steel flash drive or a Sony Vaio flash drive (or a leather and steel Sony Vaio flash drive) you can be sure it is a fake that corrupts files!!
