If you plan to purchase accessories for electronics (I’m talking about cell phone cases specifically, but am sure it’s not just limited to that), watch out for Amazon. It’s pretty well known that many of the 3rd party sellers on the site are in the business of selling counterfeit products, but I recently purchased a case directly from Amazon (in other words, I chose Amazon as my seller) thinking I’d get the real deal. I ended up receiving a knock-off anyway. Sketchy knock-off packaging is always a dead giveaway, but this thing didn’t even fit on the phone.
I should’ve learned my lesson after the last case I purchased from the site arrived packed in a Ziploc baggie. Shame on me.
