Why are Sony and Kingston brands are being targeted by counterfeiters? People trust in this famous names. Please check Sony and Kingston websites fto see if you can find this usb flash drive 16GB usb flash drives offered in pleasant spring colours!

Kingston does offer DataTraveler 101 usb flash drives with similar colours, only it is a swivel drive not capped. Also it says Kingston, not Sony! Kingston is offering the 16GB at $56 US but we found a seller charging over $70 for a drive never made by Kingston. Is the surcharge because Sony’s name is being used? This drive is not made by Sony either.
