Beware Of Corsair Flash Voyager Usb flash drives advertised at 256GB with this packaging and drive markings. They are counterfeits, fake! Corsair did not produce them in the size advertised. Sold mainly on wholesaler internet sites in China, Hong Kong. You can find them on other internet sites too. In some cases, listings will advertise them as “upgraded” – there is no such thing. This is a polite term for false capacity.

Avoid being frauded or scammed. Do not buy this usb flash drive in the packaging shown, you risk data loss. Do not sell this usb flash drive! The Flash Voyager was made in 8GB, 16GB and 32GB capacity. If you see any advertising for 64GB, 128GB or 256GB you will buy a fake.
