Here we have yet another fraudulent listing from an ebay seller registered in China who pretends that fake capacity flash drives are located in a completely different country. The supposedly 64GB USB flash drive in this ebay listing is nothing of the sort – it is unlikely to be able to save as much as 4GB before it corrupts files. It may be marked with the name Sony but Sony have never sold any flash drives like this. The location is given as New York, United States – absolute rubbish – the flash drive, like this fraudster, is in China.

Beware – most of the flash memory listings (USB flash drives, memory cards, MP players) on ebay are scams!

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.
