Stay away! theirs been several posts asking the same question but from different retailers.. and 95% have been deemed as fakes!

Only buy from a reputable site this kind of thing,tons of fake ones around,just like sunglasses,handbags the list endless and GHD's one them top fake items.

Amazon marketplace is full of counterfeit goods. A load of fake R4 cards on there when I was looking to buy one.

I had a guy trying to sell me Nikon D90 for £450 complete with lens from Amazon marketplace, when I told Amazon that it looked a scam it took two weeks for his ad to go, I belie ve there are as many fakes and scams on Amazon now as Ebay as it looks an easy option for the crooks.... stay away! :thumbsup:

Yes, Amazon are a good company to deal with but just about anyone can be in the marketplace offering any kind a deal as they are not vetted... The scam usually shows when you try to buy the item and it will not allow shipping to your address so contact becomes via email asking to ignore Amazon as they are having problems, just send the cash by maony transfer...blah, blah :w00t:
