listing fakes

1 0
I'm not trying to promote the manufacturing and distribution of counterfeit goods, but there's a market for people who prefer to spend less for replica's.  We see it every day in grocery stores for instance, with cheaper generic brands of cereal next to the same exact name branded cereal.  Assuming the item posted follows all legal guidelines, is there a clear and descriptive method of posting deals that cater to this market without being mistaken?

Just want to be sure that they wouldn't become misleading posts and potentially build a negative rap

There is a big difference between a fake and a generic. Posting a fake coach bag, or fake jerseys, or fake lacoste shirts or whatever else should not be allowed. it is no different than posting links to where someone can download pirated movies or music. It is copyright/trademark infringement and is illegal.

Here is a tip what I do... I search the deals to get a feeling of what kind of deals are posted. Then work your way from there.
If you find something you like, post it. Don't post it if there is no sale on the item and a expensive price. It's all about researching the site and getting a feeling for it. Thats what I did.

Fake stuff should be a no no anywhere. It can ruin real businesses.

The main issue I see here is that the fakes are listed without mentioning they are. I don't see anyone listing Dollar General glass cleaner as Windex. :)

exactly, being new to the site I just wanted to confirm that it wasn't taboo to list the dollar general glass cleaner and catch heat from those who thought it was windex :)

Dont post fakes. There's a big difference between generics or counterfeit/fakes. Generics or stuff that was modeled off a brand name is ok but counterfeits like Fake Rolex or fake LV purses, etc are not ok
