    The highest GB in size micro SD card is still 256GB, only SD cards have just reached the 1TB level. This product has been listed before the 1TB SD was announced. Amazon could easily tell from product descriptions when certain things are fake based on what is on the market. But they choose to allow scammers to operate.

    I don't think amazon reads product descriptions before its listed... if a product is fake/counterfeit, the seller is going to face problem in future..( Negative review/ Negative account health / hold on funds etc. if any product is returned. seller have to pay for shipping.
    FYI : I am a seller in amazon ( India)

    It will be difficult to stay on top of each seller and what they are selling. They rely on customers to report issue to them.
    There are thousands of sellers that they can't watch all the time, it's only when a seller gets too many negative reviews or reported they suspend his account.

    They can revamp their system for tech by making you select from a list, and if its not something that is listed you won't be able to put it up as 1TB or 1024GB.

    We can't predict future in technology. it is evolving very fast.. within few months we might get 1tb card too. how amazon is supposed to follow this trend?
    Including such advanced system that can analyse current tech trends require AI for sure. it worths?
    Thier current system involves humans itself , Not a machine. ( Users are free to review/report/return etc)
