Sites like eBay and Amazon Marketplace allow third party sellers to sell products with very little regulation. This means that it is easy for counterfeiters to sell fake or substandard products.
We have developed a plug-in that will identify a third party seller so that you can make an informed decision before you purchase. For more details, visit Check It Out.
We recommend that you only buy from retailers that you know and trust - so look out for the online options for well known High Street stores, the major online retailers or buy directly from manufacturers.
