READ THIS, YOU MUST UNDERSTAND SOMETHING ABOUT AMAZON AND THESE PRODUCTS
on February 21, 2013
OK, first of all, most or all of these products listed here are fakes. I would go out on a limb and say that all of them are. How do I know? Because I used to sell them on Amazon just like this listing. I want you to use your critical thinking for a moment...Why can you buy an original Apple product here on Amazon for half price? Hmmmm? Well, because they are counterfeit. Do you think the largest company in the world does not control their inventory and their retail distribution? How many times have you seen an Apple product on sale? Rarely if ever and it is always from a reputable retailer authorized by Apple. Can you imagine all these small retailers , like "Joe's Online Store" or "Super Deals" or whatever calling up Apple and saying "We would like to sell your merchandise for half price on Amazon and dilute your brand name", and then Apple says "sure, how many would you like?" Know you are buying a fake accessory if you are paying half price, after you come to grips with that, then the real question is, how do you get the best fake on Amazon? So, I would look at the reviews on the individual retailer and the higher the score the more likely that you are going to get a quality fake. However, there is no way to guarantee that you are going to get a good fake. Most of these are going to be decent, but some will be garbage. Also, consider the price that these are listed for. Again, use your critical thinking and consider, how one can sell this item for $5? Only one way, it has to cost $1, after they pay for shipping $2.5 and pay Amazon their 15% then that leaves the profit. Use your brain folks! If you have an item and the price here is $12-$15 then the cost is probably $4-$7 and then there is enough profit left here where they can run a small business.
BTW, same thing for every "original Apple product in bulk packaging" Apple does not do this either. If you see products like this they are fakes, know that. Same thing for most phone cases that are name brand, like Speck and SPG etc..unless it is sold by the manufacturer on Amazon.
Do not believe that because it is fulfilled by Amazon that it means the product is original or of high quality. There is no one in the Amazon warehouses that are inspecting these incoming products to see if they are original. Amazon cares about two things: Making money and making sure that your experience with Amazon is good and they only care about that because they know if you have a bad experience then they won't make money. These will disappear someday when it becomes problematic for Amazon but in the meantime they are a big money maker and they are looking the other way. They can do this because it is a marketplace and they are not purchasing the merchandise and selling it to you. Hopefully this was educational. You know what mom and dad always told you, right? "If it seems to good to be true, it probably is" On Amazon and the Internet, it is always true!!!! Good luck and use your brain! For those of you without a brain, you are excused and I have something to sell you.
