    It would depend. There were some crazy sales on Amazon for Spigen cases. But what jumps out at me (and I'm a huge seller on eBay with 1500+ feedback) is that the guy only has 36. I tend to trust sellers with higher feedback when it comes to item prices that sound too good to be true.....

    Spigen like most others make their cases in China where a lot of people can steal or get ahold of them. Same thing happened last year with the 5S Tough Armor cases... After a few weeks you could buy one of every color (even unreleased colors) for like $5 or something on Alibaba.

    I'd stay away, look at the feedback comments people gave him, unhappy buyers, and at only 36 rating, no history. find someone with longer, better history imo..

    Hard to tell, even if they are real there is often times minor differences like missing a logo somewhere, etc. There are many fakes out there as well -- gotta just try it out and see. :cool: China has insanely cheap bulk postal rates so you can often times order them for a few bucks shipped.
