Beware: ebayer new-999 sells fake flash drives which corrupt files

leave a comment »

Although the picture in this ebay listing from new-999 we could still see the name Sony on this USB flash drive. Sony do not sell anything remotely like this. What you are looking at is a fake capacity counterfeit that corrupts files. As this flash drive is an obvious fake we expect all flash drives from this seller will be fakes.

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.

kenbar2 lists obvious counterfeit 64GB Sony flash drive on ebay

leave a comment »

Sony do not sell any 64GB USB flash drives and, although kenbar2 calls them microvault drives, careful examination of the photo in this ebay listing shows that the drive carries the Vaio logo – always sure fire proof that a USB flash drive is counterfeit, fake capacity and corrupts files. The seller obviously bought from a fraudulent wholesale outlet.

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.

These flash drives from ebay seller rieswan will corrupt files

leave a comment »

Seller rieswan (registered on ebay Germany) seems to realise that these are not genuine Sony flash drives but does not seem to understand what this means. Let us make this crystal clear for everyone:

  1. They are counterfeit and therefore their sale is an illegal act that could lead to imprisonment.
  2. The capacity shown when you plug a counterfeit USB flash drive into the computer is false – they have been programmed to display a fake capacity to the operating system.
  3. A fake capacity flash drive inevitably corrupts the user’s files once the true capacity is reached,

In conclusion – no one with any sense should either buy or sell such items!!

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.

Two sellers on ebay France list obvious fake 64GB Sony flash drive

Two ebay members in France (yannick and NATACHA) have listed this very obvious fake Sony drive. It is not made by Sony, it is not 64GB and it will corrupt any data saved to it after a while.

As usual we strongly advise ebayers to test all flash memory with the free program h2testw.

Report in to SOSFakeFlash if your testing confirms you have a false capacity device.

These flash drives were not made by Sony and they are not 500GB – there are no 500GB USB flash drives. As usual we strongly advise ebayers to test all flash memory with the free program h2testw.

Report in to SOSFakeFlash if your testing confirms you have a false capacity device.
