The Sony Vaio flash drives in this ebay listing from zhenzhupearl02 are (like all Sony Vaio flash drives) fake capacity counterfeits manufactured by fraudsters in China. There is no such thing as a genuine Sony Vaio flash drive – all are fake USB flash drives and anyone buying one will find it corrupts their files after a while. Sony do not use the Vaio name for flash drives – steer well clear of any you see! The 64GB Kingston flash drives from this seller are also fakes as no doubt are all the memory cards listed on ebay by zhenzhupearl02.

szesze2009 auctions fake capacity flash memory on ebay

Seller szesze2009 is auctioning USB flash drives and memory cards on ebay that are certain to be fake capacity. A fake capacity flash drive or memory card inevitably corrupts your files once the real capacity (usually a maximum of 4GB) is full. Do not be fooled by what the operating system shows you; the capacity shown is due to fraudulent programming of these devices.
