The counterfeit/fake product is often of very inferior quality to the genuine product and breaks very easily.
Traces of toxic material have been found in some fake product we have encountered. This can be extremely dangerous and hazardous.
A number of customers have complained of paying agents, vendors, etc for product with shipping direct from China and via sites such as Alibaba, DH Gate, etc. and have never received the goods. This is very common. You will likely not ever see the goods or the money again.
As we work closely with worldwide customs in our attempt to combat counterfeit activity, product purchased from outside the UK is likely to be seized by customs upon exit from source or entry. This will result in guaranteed non-delivery and full loss of payment of goods.
