120GB Sony Vaio Counterfeit Fake USB Flash Drive – Silver Metal Black Box Packaging

Posted by flashchiptutor on April 17, 2009

Beware Sony Vaio USB Flash Drive advertised as 120GB with sophisticated black packaging it is a counterfeit – fake! 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 on eBay, targeting those with upscale tastes wanting large capacity usb flash drives. Avoid being frauded or scammed. Do not buy this usb flash drive, you risk data loss. Do not sell this usb flash drive!

Important Reading:

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


Notice how this drive has a tape marking the advertised capacity? Now would this make sense? Remember Vaio is laptop not flash drive.

If you see this for sale anywhere please contact Sony at:stopfakes@am.sony.com
