How to avoid buying counterfeit products
It can be difficult to distinguish counterfeit products from the original products. If you are not sure whether a product is a counterfeit, you can seek information on the website of the original manufacturer. And price and quality are always good indicators of whether a product is genuine.
The product could be a counterfeit if...
- the price is significantly lower than the normal price of the branded product
- the quality of the product seems to be lower than expected
- the product is sold from a temporary outlet, e.g. a street seller or a market
- the contact information on the website is incomplete and details about agreements with rights owners are vague
