    Guys,
    take a look at this store:

    http://www.accessoriesaz.com/


    Do you think their Speck's cases are fake?
    They sale from Hong Kong..
    I ordered one for 17.99 (Candyshell Satin - Sour Apple/Black)

    What is your opinion about it?

    Yeah, given that they didn't other to even go by the same name for the colour (Snakebite Green is the name on the Speck site) and the price, I would say they aren't officially from Speck. Actually there's tons of fakes, like the ones on Amazon. I was looking into cases and ended up getting a Speck candyshell from Apple. I'm sure there are legit sellers but you can't be sure unless you order from Speck or Apple imo.

    Not that it matters if it's a good fake. If they got the whole soft interior, hard outershell thing down, the case should still do the job.

    It looks their Speck's cases fake, but fake products also have A,B,C,D levels.
    i don't Which level for this store. But the store's rank is low to 287 millions,
    it may be a new store.

    How you do recognize that their Speck cases are fake?
    Is there any counterfeits of the satin - series already?
    I have never seen fake satin candyshell..

    Oh my mistake, I somehow managed to not see that you were talking about the Satin Candyshell which does come in sour apple and black.

    I does seem pretty quick for fakes to be made for the satins which just came out in the last few months in the newer colours.
    But still, the price seems too good to be true. I know there are videos of comparisons between the regular candyshells and fakes. Maybe there are some of satins too.

    Out of curiosity, did you notice something off about the quality of your case or something? Or are you just wondering about the website?

    Just wondering about the site, because I ordered this particular case (Satin Sour Apple) and I am waiting for it to arrive.
    Then I realized how low is the price actually and worried about the quality of the products they offer...

    Hong Kong is next to China u know,

    1 hour transport time,

    there is a place in Shen Zhun that sales china manufactured products (mostly fake and poor quality, selling like <USD 2 a pop)

    how do I know? I live in Hong Kong

    But in my case the price was 17$ and I think it can be an original Speck product..

    Looks like they got shut down. Wonder what happened :rolleyes:
    Good job though, I would have been fooled. You went out and bought a real one after ordering? Or was this a replacement for one you already had?

    No, I already had an original one ( satin black version), but wanted satin sour apple color.
    They didn't even send me a satin version but normal glossy one and above everything - counterfeit...
    Will play with PayPal...

    This site is opened again and doesn't offer Speck's products anymore...
    I got refund from PayPal and most probably this site was contacted by Speck and reported that they are selling fake products with their brand.
    This shut down of the site last days most probably was because of this process...
    Epic fail!

    Always buy from Amazon LLC. You have to make sure to select it from them in the other sellers list because the first price you get is often from 3rd parties selling fakes.

    Seems real... their feedback is next to perfect.

    ----------

    This. There are so many 3rd parties selling fakes on amazon that it becomes risky to even deal with anyone BUT amazon on certain products.

    Sorry to bring this back from the dead, but the case pictured is a real speck case.

    Also I have bought 2 speck cases from two separate sellers from Hong Kong and they were both real. One cost 9 dollars shipped the other was 13 dollars shipped. There are some good deals on amazon.

    Sorry to bring this back from the dead, but you are completely wrong. What you say as an evidence is completely nonsense and practically- unhelpful...
