    It could be the updated version of their case. I have that exact case and same color and I have the logo on the right. And I got sent that from case mate. But I do know that they have updated their logo if you look at their website. So it could be an updated version of their case. I wouldn't say it's fake though.

    really? i ordered one from casemate this morning and i saw on the stock picture that it had the logo like the one on the left, the fit is better on the older one, i don't like that new style at all,

    Case-mate sells $24 cases, knockoff cases cost 2 dollars, copy casemate then u can make $22 profit, not saying that casemate is paying more then $2 for their cases though.

    i dont think anyone fakes a brand logo with a totally different logo. The defies the bootleg laws.


    clearly it a logo refresh http://www.case-mate.com/

    now stop the madness and posting false accusations.

    Hello everyone,

    Apparently, the fake case is spreading all over the world. We just bought 4 more cases last week, and this is how they looked, perfectly FAKE!!! Please note the attached images.

    Thankfully, I had one case in stock which we bought two months ago, and one can easily spot the differences. The most evident one is that the original case comes with screen protector and the fake one only comes with the fake case!

    You can also notice the differences in the logo, top and bottom edges, inside of the case, and even the barcode number, it’s not printed on the package, it’s just a sticker!!! :mad:

    I am definitely reporting this to Case Mate support.

    hey, i thought so too at first, but after that i ordered some from the company and they were the same, i think case-mate just lost it's already doubtful reputation for sure this time around.
