Do you want to earn money selling USB Flash drives? You can make great profits.

In our troubled ecomomic times you can earn good money. If you don’t care about the damage you will do to people causing them to lose data and be frauded – then run to those chinese websites. Forget about doing research on the product you intend to sell.

Would Sony upgrade Kingston’s DataTraveler 2GB DTI/2GB to an amazing 64GB? They are competitors in the usb flash drive market! Why would Sony give Kingston a helping hand and make a 2GB usb flash drive grow in to an amazing side. To demonstrate that Sony has have more knowledge and expertise? FlashChipTutor doesn’t think so. It is just more fake flash spin from counterfeiters who continue to attack both brand names to make their fake flash profits.

Resellers looking to make a fast dollar order from these wholesale internet sites in the Orient. For $15 US you can buy a counterfeit that magically becomes 64GB. Most are resold on eBay. “Upgrading” is a polite word used in the orient for digitally altering a usb flash drive to lie about it’s true capacity to the operating system. Too many resellers just do not bother to research their product. As a result they are hounded by angry buyers and likely to have law enforcement knocking on their door soon.

Have a look at the drive and listing presented below. Buyers and resellers – please do your homework before you end up in what SOSFakeFlash refers to as “Fake Flash Hell “! It is a nightmare for both.

Important Reading:

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

Sony did not exactly upgrade this usb flash drive. It is also the lime model and that would be only 2GB true capacity if it actually has the right flash drive chip inside. Anyone who used this drive will suffer data loss once they exceed 2GB.
