Seller muggnmouse says in this ebay listing:

This is a LIKE NEW,256gb USB THUMB DRIVE. I have personally checked the capacity of the thumb drive and filled it to 220gb. I figured that was far enough to ensure its capacity. THIS IS THE REAL DEAL! VERY RARE!!!!! Only other i can compare to is a GENUINE Kingston d310 data traveler. As you know there are alot of fake drives going around. I can assure you this one is 100% Authentic. I will have NO RESERVE set on this item but it will be far cheaper then the competitors. This product also has no moving objects internally which means it does not malfunction or lock up. Please bid with confidence.

Oh really? Is that so?
Well that’s very strange, seeing that Sony do not sell any 256GB flash drives! This is a fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files – you can be confident that it will trash most of which you save to it!

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.
