The product has a warranty, aka if it dies it gets replaced. The provider/seller/retailer guarantees the product you buy fulfills what was advertised and detailed in the offer, which means if there was no indication the product was a fake/copy/reassembly, then you can claim you were scammed, and you should either receive what you actually paid for or your money back, similar to when you receive a different product (an i3 instead of i7, for example).Major retailers with a brick and morter store won't have an issue with fakes, but online 'marketplace' sites more definitely will. And it's the apathy towards fakes that makes them profitable.
I don't think the product guarantee will matter if you find out years later it's fake after something has been hacked/compromised or has been performing sub-par. In those events, you're more worried about other things than a refund.
Yes, they appear now and then. Some online retailers are more careful than others, but the "best" retailers really push for policing these shady businesses.And yet fakes still abound on both platforms showing you just how much they really care that fakes are being peddled on their platforms...
That's odd. It worked for me. Maybe try again? Apparently TH was having issues with the servers and many people couldn't connect to the site.Link didn't work for me.
