They are the among the oldest fakes on the market and are sold by internet sites in China and Hong Kong. You will find information for the Sony website and also their email contact address to report your counterfeit.

You can also buy less exotic versions with just the “Sony” brand name. These are special usb flash drives – designed to help you lose your precious data and of course empty your wallet too.

The fake flash sellers who are eager to sell to you on eBay come in many guises. Some set up respectable looking listings – very business like.

Just this week Zahid issued urgent alerts at SOSFakeFlash about an ebay seller lozzy_17. Zahid has been paroling eBay for suspicious listings – he read the warning issued about Private Auctions by SOSFakeFlash and the need for volunteers to help. We fell off our chairs – What? Somebody is selling a 500GB Flash Memory Drive? You’ve got to be kidding! There aren’t going to be drives like that available to the public for several years. Why? They are not there yet in technology – miniaturizing the flash chips so they are the same size at current USB memory sticks will take some work! Selling at a consumer affordable price, that will also be a challenge. Right now the highest available size is 64GB and come from manufacturers of memory chips.

This article is a MUST Read for anyone who has a Sony Counterfeit, needs help for a Sony counterfeit flash drive or wants to know what is a real or not real for Sony Flash Drives.
