    Off Topic - Largest eBay scam uncovered

    Hi,

    With all the talk about G-shock clone rejects on eBay, I thought you may be interested in all the golf club clones on eBay:

    :oops: very interesting read - :thanks for sharing. I'm kind of glad that most G-Shock fakes are easy to spot but when I see how many UK-based sellers sell fake BAPEs I often shake my head in disbelief. And they always clearly say 'Casio G-Shock' in the description - so I wonder how much money these guys make.

    Greetings, Sedi
    Cheers

    I was involved in a situation where someone had sold fake washing powder. In a nutshell, *anything* that can be made more cheaply than the genuine article is vulnerable to being counterfeited.

    If you have opened your G's and had a close look inside, you will know which one (if any) is the fake. The exterior may be deceiving, but the inner workings differentiates the true Casio from a fake.
