16GB Sony Counterfeit Fake USB Flash Drive – Brown or Black Leather Stamped With Sony Name

Posted by flashchiptutor on April 11, 2009

Beware Sony flash memory pen drives in leather advertised as 16GB and stamped with the Sony brand name, they are a counterfeit – fake! Sony never produced them. Sold on wholesaler internet sites in China and Hong Kong. This model often has a real capacity of only 512MB and rarely more than 2GB. It is also the oldest “classic” fake sold. Most use the old icreate controller chips. It is sold a lot on eBay but rarely as stamped with the Sony brand anymore – too obvious. Avoid being frauded or scammed. Do not buy this usb flash drive, you risk data loss. Do not sell this usb flash drive if such capacity sizes are advertised!

Important Reading:

Report in to SOSFakeFlash if your testing confirms you have a false capacity device.
