Sturdy fake flash drives from ebay seller julesrulestheworld

As there is no such thing as a genuine Sony Vaio flash drive (the Vaio brand is not used by Sony for flash drives) we can say without fear of contradiction that the sturdy 32GB flash drives in this ebay listing (item number 200564876469) from julesrulestheworld are fake capacity counterfeits and that anyone who bought one will find it corrupts their files.

The seller (like many others) may not realise that the supplier (no doubt in China) is selling fakes but we can assure julesrulestheworld that a test with h2testw will show that we are right. If sellers researched a bit more thoroughly (particularly for branded USB flash drives such as Sony, Kingston, Transcend, Corsair etc where the brand’s web site will show what’s really available) they would be less likely to fall into the trap of buying from fraudulent suppliers and finding that they sold fakes on ebay – with all the hassle that entails!
