How to Spot Fake Sunglasses

Like if this guide is helpful

It's always tempting, when you see a pair of "Brand Name" sunglasses at rediculously low prices, to bid on them. I have found several web sites which openly sell Fake Oakley, Police, Ray Ban etc for as little as $20 per dozen. Many of these glasses, I see advertised on Ebay by people claiming them to be genuine when they are in fact far from it. Despite eBay's best efforts there will always be sellers like this advertising

How to spot the rouges. Anybody stating that the product is new and genuine but just don't seem to have the box, paperwork or certificates or they have the packaging but it is low quality. Prices which just don't make sense, unverified members with low ratings are all warning signs.

It's not just the price. Many of these glasses have little or no UV protection, which can accelerate damage to your eyes as the lens focuses the light on your eye rather than protect it.

Funding Crime. Most fake products are produced and sold to fund illegal organisations many sellers are unwittingly putting money in the pockets of crime syndicates just to make a quick Buck. Buying and hence supporting these organsiations could be causing misery in another part of the world so bear this in mind when making your next purchase

So don't be tempted into parting with your money for a product which will damage your eyes, fund crime and prove to be a big disappointment.
I have a huge range of sunglasses in my eBay shop for around £10 and I am a UK Top Rated Seller so you know your purchase will be appreciated and dealt with promptly and in a professional manner.
