Fake Products
« on: January 09, 2019, 06:05:14 PM »
hi tuan Danny & good evening to all m’sians..
i’m a newbie here & quite old too.. suprise with the technology these days.. boleh sembang2 with so many people, young & old..
anyway, just to share my worries.. on these imitation products, or what they call as replica, clone, 1 to 1 copy, grade aaa, a+ and whatever they call them.. (not only on watches)
they are getting better in matching the genuine products each day, and even worst, those guys are bold & daring enough selling them online as genuine products..
sometimes i become sakit hati when my friends got conned buying fake goods with their hard earn money.. what can we do?

It's really quite easy. Practise the following :

1) The old adage is buy the seller, not the watch.
2) When in doubt, send for SC verification.
3) Unless we are talking about vintage pieces, we should be getting full boxed sets. Most of those replica adverts would have "watch only, no box or papers" and with unreasonably low prices. So most of those whom buy into the replicas knew what they were buying into really.

Thank you for the tips..
Just sharing my experience assisting a friend in his mishap..
My friend is not a watch guy, just trying to get a good piece on his wrist from his hard earn money.. what happened was he decided to get a tag from an online watch dealer through mudah, after being convinced that the product is genuine, new, box & document & with 2 yrs engine warranty, but the price is half of rrp due to ‘pintu belakang’...
The advertiser even promised him should the product is fake, refund is guaranteed.
Sekali the product is confirm not genuine.. but even i can’t noticed the difference until i actually handled & compared it with my own tag, same model.. obviously by opening the back case then it shows...
Then it becomes i say, u say.. nothing much can be done..
The only thing is that these adverts keep on appearing in the online sales apps, some do tell, with much cheaper price circa hundreds, but there might be a next person to face the same fate as my friend had experienced..
