The fakes on GHD's (any many other goods) are now so good, that any normal signs of a fake are not visible.
An ebay trader sold many GHD's, and the first that buyers knew that they were fake was after 2 months awhen they went wrong, and GHD wrote back and said they were fake internally.
Ebay would do nothing about it.
Paypal has a time limit after which you cannot claim, so there was no help there.
Many of us where hit by this scam, and cost each of us well over £100.
Only after months of pestering and gettign police and Trading Standards involved did i get my money back. if you want to persevere it is possible, but was it worth it? Only morally.
