Mario Mirabal left this comment on the blog with a link to the website with his sale (shown above) for a very fake flash drive indeed:

I have USB flash drive of 500 Gb guaranteed.

Well, Mario, what you have is a gauranteed fake! The flash drive you are selling will corrupt files. There is not now, never has been, and never will be any such thing as a genuine Sony MicroVault 500GB flash drive!! There are plenty of fake flash drives of this type in any old fantastic fake capacity you care to imagine as this picture taken in a shop in Singapore demonstrates:

shanghai display

A cabinet full of obvious fake flash drives – and above these, fake capacity MP3/MP4 players – openly being sold in a shop. This is common in China – the home of fake flash memory.

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.
