If you ordered it from Amazon itself then this probably wouldn't be an issue, but it sounds like the 3rd party seller sold you a fake or a reject. Here's a link on Speck's site talking about counterfeits.I bought this case from amazon from a seller called (harryshopzone),this is my first time buying from amazon.It was in the normal packaging but who knows.dont know if I have any recourse as this if my first time buying from amazon...
I was just reading this sellars feedback from today and guess what i see,("The color is not as described in the listing. It was supposed to be black/pomodoro but it turned out to be black/neon pink."

You are protected in a sense... You can always dispute the sale with Amazon and they are pretty good about protecting the buyer. However, this does not stop some 3rd party sellers on Amazon from peddling fakes or false advertising.So even when you buy from a sellar there on amazon, you are not protected the same way as if it were directly from amazon. excuse my ignorance as i have never bought from amazon
