mstaplet auctions massive 512GB fake Sony Vaio flash drives on ebay

with 2 comments

The 512GB Sony Vaio flash drives listed at auction on ebay by mstaplet are fake fake fakity fake! There is no such thing as a genuine 512GB flash drive yet and there is no such thing as a genuine Sony Vaio flash drive. This USB flash drive 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.

  1. Hi SEBIU,
    Members of our team and others reported fakes for over three years using this tool – action on listings was always too darned late!! We tried to get in touch with Sony directly – got no help. Kingston were better – until about 9 months ago we sent them almost daily reports about fakes on ebay and elsewhere but we gave up on them too as they don’t seem to have the people to cope with the problem.

    We are all volunteers here – victims of fake flash fraud who warn others on an unpaid basis. Sony, Kingston, Corsair, Transcend etc are big brand names – why don’t you (if you are anything to do with Sony) do something to protect your reputation yourselves?

    We are open to offers of employment of course – then you’ll know instantly when we spot fraud!!

  2. Please let us know about these listings. Using the VeRO Reporting Tool on eBay, Sony can shut these counterfeit listings down.
