ultracare4u2008Feedback comments about the 8GB Sony PRO Duo memory sticks sold by ultracare4u2008 suggests they are counterfeit and fake capacity. We therefore expect that all flash memory items from this Hong Kong seller will be fakes.

Fake flash memory cause data loss and corruption. 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.

Tell-tale signs on packaging of fake Sony flash memory on eBay

leave a comment »

When fraudsters make packaging for their fake Sony memory they tend to make mistakes like putting G instead of GB on the packaging for USB flash drives – such as in the picture below.

Another clue that the flash drive pictured is a fake is the fact that Sony have never made 32GB, 64GB or higher capacity drive like this! Always check Sony’s website to see whether the item you are interested in even exists before considering a purchase.
You can simply place your cursor over this link to a Youtube video and click the play button in the little window to see this video by an ebayer talking about some tell tale signs on the packaging of a 4GB Sony Pro Duo memory stick.
