Title: Fake goods, fake store
Post by: Alfie on August 13, 2011, 05:20:02 AM
If you go to China, be careful what you buy and where you buy it.

Chinese authorities have uncovered 22 fake Apple stores in one Chinese city alone. The stores in Kunming not only used Apple's brand and logo, but also the decor and ambience of a real Apple store. Staff also wore the same colour T-shirts as real Apple staffers, and sported lanyards of the same design. Staff in the "original" fake shop said they believed they were working in a real Apple store!  :o

As some one who was heavily involved in the world of fakes ( genuine copy's ) I can honestly say with out reservation
this sort of thing is more wide spread than most people think .

You can't trust anybody these days. What happened to honesty?

suitable pricing will kill the fakers; high prices merely encourage them
