FYI: I have noticed alot of people selling GHD's on here. What to do if they are fake.

Found 31st Aug 2009
Hi everyone. I have noticed there are alot of people who have been selling their GHD's on here recently. A while ago now I purchased a pair of GHD's "rare". They were £60. When they arrived it was obvious they were fake (as I have been using GHD's for years). They had the hologram on the straightner itself, the same (but cheaper looking) plug, fake serial number on the cord. Basically an almost exact replica.
I contacted GHD who were not interested. Therefore, I contacted my local trading standards who contacted the trading standards officer, for the area they were sold from. To cut a long story short he paid a suprise visit to the seller and it was discovered she had more of the GHD Pure sets. I GOT MY MONEY BACK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

There are loads of websites. Me and my sister looked for some as she needed a new pair of cheap ones to take on hols. Most websites that came up were selling fakes!If I need a new pair in the future I am going to stick to hairdressers or GHD itself.There is no such thing as cheap GHD's.Just want to warn everyone really and if you have bought fakes dont give up!

Hairdressers x2 and ghd x 3. May I also add I had the purple set from Toni and Guy and they were fakes!GHD did actually sort it out. Toni and Guy were not very helpful.They suggested a member of staff swapped the real pair originally in the box!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

GHD's are the best. I have had them since 18 years old. They dont last very long though. They always seem to stop working just after the guarantee. Although the mark 4 ones have 2 years now. I have most of the limited editions ones! :0)

Was they switched on?:w00t:

tbh babyliss pro 230 are just as good with a better price and you get no fakes.
Thanks for the heads up gemmy, I wont touch GHD's these days as you just dont know...... I just use the GHDS I have had for years or babyliss lol
