However, you will not convince me that Amazon does not know that this counterfeiting is happening. They should be taking steps to police their own business. If they fail to do so, people will wise up and stop doing business with them.

 

Slap them in their pocket book... it works...

Remember Starbucks??? almost over night too...

Luckily, I've not ever been burnt in an online transaction. Hope that holds because we're pretty dependent on online purchases.

more on counterfeit....

not is immune nor safe...

The secret war against counterfeit science...

 

.........''Huang was shocked to see names such as Abcam and Cell Signaling Technology on labels that looked exactly like those on vials of expensive antibodies produced by the Western companies. Although the writing meant nothing to the friendly shop owner, for Huang it directly corroborated what he and a number of his colleagues had long suspected: many of the antibodies sold by Chinese distributors were not what they were supposed to be. Counterfeiters were getting fake and diluted research reagents on to the market, and this shop in Zhongguancun, Beijing’s premier technology park, was one of the places they were buying machines to make their labels. “I had a suspicion. That confirmed it,” Huang says.''.......

Stick I know of your distaste (ok light word) for HF but their stuff may be knock off but not counterfeit. That is it is not represented as someone elses product not to ignore the faults in the ads.

Amazon I have had problems getting answers on products and when the chinee said it would work with another product They sold me, but it did not . In negotiation want me to not give a bad rating so boss would not be mad at them and then only wanted to give 1/2 credit for something that did not fit had to put my foot down and got full credit. oh and kept the worthless item.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
