32GB Sony Vaio Counterfeit Fake USB Flash Drive – Red Jewel – Green White Packaging

Posted by flashchiptutor on April 16, 2009

Beware Sony Vaio USB Flash Drive advertised as 32GB with packaging of VAIO Sony and a sticker of 32GB is a counterfeit – fake! This model sports a red plastic jewel in green white packaging. Sony never produced this usb pen stick flash drive – Vaio is for Sony’s Laptop brand, MicroVault is for Sony usb flash drives. Sold on wholesaler internet sites in China and Hong Kong. Often sold as “upgraded” – there is no such thing. This model sold a lot on eBay, targeting those who do not know the difference between MicroVault and Vaio, only that they are both famous. Sony would never use a sticker for it’s sizing. The span packaging is the famous tell tail sign of a counterfeiter. SOSFakeFlash has never seen a genunie capacity usb flash drive using this packaging yet. Avoid being frauded or scammed. Do not buy this usb flash drive, you risk data loss. Do not sell this usb flash drive!
