Even if they aren't lying, the question is "did they use AES 256 correctly?"

There are a number of ways, some of them non-obvious, to produce a system that does, in fact, use AES 256 in some capacity; but doesn't actually achieve reasonably security against anybody who wouldn't also be stopped by XOR and a scary looking autorun program(particularly since, as this is a small USB drive, the attacker can probably make some plausible assumptions about some of the plaintext, based on what is known about what fat32 volumes look like).
