Ordered T Shirt and Its Not the Real Deal

Ask a Question

Just had a t shirt delivered and it’s a copy. Should I report it or put it down to experience? It was from a well known selling site.

Report it to the brand or, at the very least, get some advice from Trading Standards. https://www.citizensadvice.org.uk/consumer/get-more-help/report-to-trading-standards/

Are you able to return it for a refund?

Mango4 If people who received counterfeit goods merely returned them for a refund, the counterfeiters and rogue traders would have absolutely nothing to worry about. sunny101 and neo1 have much better solutions.

davidstockport I reported a purchase to Rockport a few years ago because it just didn't seem 'right'. They investigated swiftly and thoroughly. I didn't get a refund but the seller got prosecuted for knowingly shifting fake goods.

sunny101 Some years ago I reported the sale of fake ukulele strings on Amazon directly to the genuine manufacturer in Italy, the reason I suspected them of being fake is that although long enough for a ukulele they were too short for a banjo ukulele. Manufacturer's specifications indicated they should have been long enough for either. I didn't get my money back either but was sent ten sets of strings (probably a life time supply😀) as a mark of appreciation by the managing director, for my help.

Many might not realise that genuine manufacturers are perhaps the biggest victims of such fraud,

When I've seen poor reviews of certain products I often wondered if the person reviewing actually realised they were reviewing a fake copy.

As sunny101 said report it to the brand but you can let us all know, name and shame 👍

You ought to report it. If it’s a reseller platform, they’re usually quick to investigate. If it’s direct from a seller, then get in touch with trading standards

I will speak to Amazon first and ask them for advice. Really annoyed as it was the only thing my little granddaughter wanted for her birthday.

Amazon marketplace I presume ? It was cheap and a fake ? The only thing that surprise me is that you expected a genuine item .

If it was advertised as genuine report it to Amazon and you will get your money back . I make many critical comments on here about cheap , fake Amazon marketplace items , but members just don't want to know ! A fancy picture , cheap price , Sold !

The brand was

Leah Ashe I had never heard of it until she a for it. I thought it was the real deal as I paid 9.99 for a t shirt and she is 8 years old.
